As part of the DAAD RISE Worldwide program, we were awarded two funded internship positions for two undergraduate students both being from Germany. The two interns will be conducting a research project as part of Mr. DLib in the fields of recommender systems, machine learning and natural language processing. Gordian (University of Munich / LMU) and Martin (Universty of Göttingen) will spend around three months with us over the summer — Gordian at the National Institute of Informatics in Tokyo, and Martin at the ADAPT Centre and School of Computer Science at the Trinity College Dublin.
Stefan Feyer from the University of Konstanz had joined the Mr. DLib team for a six months internship. Yesterday, it was time to say goodbye to Stefan and we had a small farewell party at the National Institute of Informatics (NII) in Tokyo. We wish Stefan all the best for his future career and are grateful for all the work he did.
