Summer time is internship time - especially at VRVis!
Promoting talent and supporting young people is a priority at VRVis. With the opportunity of interesting internships we want to geht young people interested and excited about science, technology and programming. Therefore, VRVis not only made it possible for students to do internships this summer, but also for pupils, as part of the FFG-funded "Talente Praktika" (Talent Internships) program. It's never too early to get started in science!
In July, Elena Ginina's data science team was joined by two student interns, Julie and Danail. For a month, they learned the basics of programming. Specifically, they worked on Robot Vision for robot Lilli. Using Python programming language, they created the first brain platform for robots Lilli so that they can recognize and identify humans and other objects.
