This open application is particularly for those students attending the EIT Matchmaking Event in Stockholm on November 8th, 2019. We believe we can find applicable projects in each of the following three EIT programs:
Autonomous Systems (AUSM/AUSY),
Human-Computer Interaction and Design (HCID/HCIN),
or Visual Computing and Communication (VCCO/VCCN).
In general, Gleechi is always looking for master thesis students who are enthusiastic in addressing one of the most challenging questions in the virtual reality industry: how to realize natural interactions between humans and computers in virtual environments.
Natural interaction requires human-like perception and action, which poses complex yet exciting challenges that range from thorough understanding of 3D environments and objects, to understanding of avatar's kinematic structures from the 3D mesh, to solving inverse kinematics problems for arms and fingers, to generating human-like motion and animation, to analyzing human interactive behaviors in VR in the next-generation VR-powered training games.
It is a broad field with a lot of interesting potential projects in different segments, so please have a look at our website
to give you inspirations before applying. Dependent on your EIT program, as well as your personal motivation and interests, we put value on the following skills:
For Autonomous Systems/Visual Computing:
Mathematics, esp. Linear Algebra,
C++ Programming, Software Engineering;
preferably with a focus on an area such as Deep Learning on 3D data, Control Theory, or Forward and Inverse Kinematics.
For Human-Computer Interaction and Design:
User Experience, User Interaction Studies,
A/B-Testing, User Research;
preferably with an interest in Virtual Reality, Gamification, or Training Applications (such as Industry Training in VR or Stroke Rehabilitation).
If you feel you are up to the challenge and interested in a project with us, please apply with your CV and cover letter.
At Gleechi, we want to enable humans to interact naturally with the digital world, and robots to interact like humans. We are a Stockholm-based startup coming from robotics research and the first in the world to enable artificial hand movement and interaction in real-time. We collaborate with world-leading game and VR developers, we make it possible for stroke patients to interact with virtual worlds, and we enable robots to collaborate with people in hospitals. We're a small team based in central Stockholm that combines awarded entrepreneurs, top-ranked robotics researchers and experienced developers. The company was founded in the end of 2014 and since then we have been awarded the Super startup of the year by Veckans Affärer, won the European startup competition EIT Digital Idea Challenge and much else. We got a ridiculously exciting time ahead and we'd love to get more awesome people onboard!
