Emanuel Jöbstl, Oct. 17-Feb. 18, Masterthesis @ CMU
I am now living in Berlin, co-founding authory.com, a company which helps journalists to become more independent. My time at CMU teached me a lot about practical problem solving and state of the art ASR research. I also learned a lot about machine learning technologies and databases, through the rich calloboration and exchange with other InterACT students. The cultural evironment I was part of during my overseas stay helped me to understand the US mentality and culture better. Many of the connections I made are still very helpful today, especially since technical startups often choose the US as their most important target market.
Lian Xizhe, January 1, - July 1, 2018, Masterthesis @ CMU
After graduating, I started working as a consultant specializing in data science, which I gathered my expertise during my master thesis. The overseas experience helped me adapting quickly to the fast pace consulting routine, since both situations need me to work independently, yet keeping good communication with coworkers. During my work I am happy to apply the research approaches and techniques I learned during my master thesis, which improves the results of current products.
