Possible Internship at DBpedia

Hi Team,

I am a master’s student at Saarland University, (MPI-Inf, Germany) and I am highly interested in doing an internship and contributing to the community. I am primarily interested in topics of Information Extraction, NLP and machine learning.
Since my university has been shut down for an indefinite time in light of the COVID-19 situation, I would like to utilize this time in contributing to the community and expanding my knowledge and skills.

I have taken up relevant course work (Eg. Information Extraction, NLP, etc) offered by the database and information systems group (Team YAGO). Therefore I believe I have the necessary skillset and knowledge to contribute to the community.

I am looking forward to hearing from the team.

Thank you very much.

Cheers,
Soumya.

You can, i’m optimistic about you
