In cooperation with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), we are offering a paid internship for a computer science Bachelor student, who is passionate about prototype design and development. Prerequisite is that you are a student studying at a German university. More details on prerequisites here, download the project description as PDF.
At SciPlore you will be working with an international team of researchers, affiliated with the University of California Berkeley and the University of Magdeburg in Germany. As an intern, you will have the chance to spend 6-12 weeks abroad at a research institute collaborating with the SciPlore team.
The SciPlore team develops novel approaches in citation and semantic text analysis for quantifying similarities between scientific articles. Similarity assessments are crucial to many Information Retrieval (IR) tasks, such as clustering of documents, recommending academic literature, or automatically detecting academic plagiarism.
Below is a screenshot of CitePlag – the first prototype of a citation-based plagiarism detection system, which we developed. To see for yourself the document similarity visualization of CitePlag, use the system on a real plagiarism case that translated from Chinese, or on a plagiarized medical publication that was retracted with the help of CitePlag.
