“Future of AI” Challenge
Hast du dir schon einmal Gedanken über die Grenzen von AI gemacht?
ekipa hat für Dich gemeinsam mit Merck die “Future of AI” Challenge gestartet.
Dabei treten Studierende aus den verschiedensten Universitäten und Hochschulen gegeneinander an, um die Grenzen von AI durch ihre innovativen Ideen zu überwinden. Und du kannst dabei sein!
Auf Basis bestehender, zukunftsweisender Ansätze von Merck werden für die Challenge innovative Ansätze aus den Bereichen Neuro- und Kognitionswissenschaften, Mathematik und Informatik sowie Bio- und Sprachwissenschaften gesucht.
Was Du davon hast?
Neben praktischer Erfahrung und einem Zertifikat für jeden Teilnehmer kannst Du weitere spannende Preise gewinnen: Merck garantiert den besten Teilnehmern ein bezahltes Research Fellowship über mehrere Monate, bei dem ihr die generierten Ansätze weiterentwickelt und auf eine gemeinsame wissenschaftliche Publikationen (auch in Form von Abschlussarbeiten) hinarbeitet.
Zusätzlich wird ein Preispool von 5.000€ auf die besten Teilnehmer aufgeteilt.
Nicht zu vergessen: Du hast die Chance, mit führenden Experten von Merck zusammenzuarbeiten, wie bspw. dem Global Head of Data Science!
Wenn du die Zukunft von AI aktiv mitgestalten möchtest, schaue auf unserer Plattform vorbei: https://app.ekipa.de/challenge/future-of-ai
Deadline zur Teilnahme ist der 10. Juni.
Wir freuen uns, wenn Du die UNIVERSITÄTSNAME vertreten wirst!

Dear Dr. Bode,
It’s me once again with some opportunities from Deloitte :)
There’s going to be an event for AI and Analytics taking place in Berlin next week, and there are some tickets for students available for the summit, taking place on Friday the 15th. Students can also apply here to get a free one. I might also be able to get them one for free if they contact me between today and tomorrow.
I thought that this may be interesting for both Data Engineering and CS students, and the event will be held in English, which should help some of the interested students.
Please let me know if you and the students find these opportunities at Deloitte emails useful (just to know if I should continue informing you!)
Dear Students, Neil D'Souza (see below) has been in touch with me. He is an old Jacobs University Alumnus (batch of 2006 ?) and is looking for talented students to work (job / internship) in his company. If interested, please get in touch directly with him (contact details below).
with regards and good luck !!

My name is Andrey Sharapov and I am a Senior Data Science at Lidl. I apologize for a direct email since we never met in the past.
I am writing to offer a number of opportunities to students willing to start a career as a Data Scientist or Data Engineer.
I would appreciate if you could let students know about these options and that we are interested in speaking to them.
We are interested in a future collaboration and are willing to get to known students better and let them ask questions by having a more detailed introduction.
We would be very interested in visiting the campus in a semiformal way. In particular, we would be interested in addressing the students by giving a presentation about our work and let them get to know us better and ask questions. This is not an HR general approach. I or my colleaque Data Scientists will come directly to you. Would that be of interest to you and students? We may come to one of your seminars or do it in another setting depending on how you see it. We can do in the evening but will need a spare room. We are building a world class team of Lidl that can provided students with future employment and valuable experince.
Please let me know, if we can take it a bit further by engaging with students and you, to build a longer term relationship.
Please let me know if this is of interest.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Dear Dr. Bode,
Long time no see!
I wanted to give you a heads-up about an event that my current company is hosting, and that may be interesting for the Data Engineering program seniors :)
If anyone has any questions, they can get back to me via email.
On another note: I hope you are doing well! I’ll let you know if I stop around campus at some point :)

Jacobs Career Fair will take place at Jacobs University on February 27, 2019 / 14:00 – 18:00 / in the Campus Center / IRC
In order to promote this event directly to our students with your help, I would kindly ask you to give me 15 minutes of lectures, preferably large classes where we jointly can reach out to students and communicate the opportunities they get in the Career Fair. Please revert back to me in order to with possible timeslot(s) – thank you.
What is in for students at the Career Fair?
· Meet employers. Meet company representatives at their exhibition booths: huge international companies like Daimler, Roche, KPMG, Accenture or Mondelez and mid-size companies from Bremen and Germany. You can also discuss possibilities in research careers with representatives from Max-Planck-Institute or AWI - Alfred Wegener Institute.
· Get an internship, job after graduation or join one of the trainee programs; look out for a career opportunity in science or industry and learn more about the endeavor of founding your own startup company.
· Visit company presentations or workshops related to job search and the application process
· Meet Jacobs Alumni in our Jacobs Startup Corner and learn about their job experiences in our “Career Talks”
· Faculty is cordially invited to join the Networking Event at 18:00 in the University Club to meet with company representatives and our alumni! Separate invitations will follow.
The employers and institutions that have signed up for this year are:
Winter school on non-linear dynamic systems and scientific writing
Please find below information on a winter school to be help on 4-8 February 2019 at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Senegal. Topics will cove non-linear dynamic systems (such as climate and planetary regulation processes) and scientific writing. Funding for covering all costs is available for 5 students, including BSc, MSc, and PhD students. Deadline for application is 31 October 2018.
IEEE event on Positioning Navigation and Communication (WPNC see wpnc.info).
Besides the usual technical presentations by authors in the self-understandable field, we also have a few exhibitors.
This year, we had the idea to open entry for Jacobs Master’s students to the last session which we plan to organize around such exhibitors.
Right after this “industry-oriented session” we will also have a
traditional “beer session”, which we also want to open to students.
Students from Masters Program on Data Engineering are welcome to attend
the two Special Sessions *starting from 17:10 on the 26th of October 2018*.
Would be nice if we could do some kind of "information registration" so
that I can make proper arrangements in quantity of food and drinks.
I ask you therefore to kindly instruct the interested students to write
me an email with the following text:
Dear Prof. Abreu,
I am a student of the Masters Program on Data Engineering and would like
to attend the Special Sessions on the 26th of October 2018.
I have the following dietary option:
1) Can consume pork products (yes/no) <-- *Please leave only one*
2) Can consume alcohol (yes/no) <-- *Please leave only one*
Thanks in advance for passing this on to the DE Masters students.
