Master’s students begin IT research projects in spring 2017

Some master’s students started the year 2017 by enrolling at the Software Campus. The participants from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) and Saarland University will begin their IT research projects as early as spring 2017. The projects funded by the BMBF are tailor-made for the program. They are based on the master’s theses of the students and at the same time cover the research interests of the industrial partners. Thus, students at Saarland University will research how critical processes can be analyzed using deep learning and how company data can be semantically enriched and made available in a smart way.

The Master students are supported by current participants and graduates of the program, but also by study modules such as “Research Practice” at KIT.Here, the software campus research project is integrated directly into the studies in two semesters and calculated in ECTS.

Vincent Diener, for example, works at the Institute of Pervasive Computing Systems (PCS) and researches haptic interfaces for complex visualizations together with Software AG. “Particularly with complex user interfaces, one is quickly flooded with information and loses the overview. Our idea is to counteract this by using targeted vibration impulses to improve the workflow,” says Vincent. Other projects at KIT are concerned with the use of AR for the representation of process progress as well as the real-time recognition and evaluation of anomalies in text data. Here, Simon Sudrich deals with the analysis of large graphs from textual temporal data such as counselor communities or social networks.

By the end of the year, Software Campus participants will have completed their IT research project, participated in executive training and mentoring sessions, and gained practical insights into their partner company.
