In July 2021, the ATHENA Christian Doppler Laboratory hosted three interns working on the following topics:
- Kassian Fuger: Machine Learning and Video Encoding for HTTP Adaptive Streaming
- Timo Pfeifer: HTTP Adaptive Streaming for Mobile Devices
- Vanessa Fröhlich: Machine Learning and its Applications
At the end of the internship, the interns presented their work and the results in the form of a presentation, and they have obtained a certificate of internship. We believe that the joint work was useful both for the laboratory and for the interns themselves. We would like to thank the interns for their genuine interest, productive work, and excellent feedback about our laboratory.
Kassian Fuger: “Those four weeks of the internship meant a lot for my future career path. The internship gave me a great view of what working with a smart and friendly team is like. Working on my tasks by myself taught me a lot and I learned and improved in every aspect of the internship and if something was unclear my supervisor was always there to help. I was well accepted into the team and we sometimes went for lunch together which was very nice and helped me to be confident around the team. Anyways spending a part of my summertime at ATHENA was super fun and a good time investment. Being on the ATHENA team was a great experience and I think everyone can learn something there.”
Vanessa Fröhlich: “I really enjoyed the internship at ATHENA and would even be happy to do it a second time. It was a great experience working with the people there and getting to know certain things that I would have definitely not learned elsewhere. It was very interesting to work with a new type of programming! I also appreciated very much how I felt part of the team in the first days already and also enjoyed working independently but with the help of my supervisor Farzad whenever I needed something or was stuck with an exercise. I am very glad that I found this internship and can say that I have gained a lot of experience there. Thank you!”
We wish the interns every success in their journey through life and we hope to see them soon back at the University of Klagenfurt and ATHENA.
