|Thema4423||Automatically Recommending Citations for Texts Using Neural Networks|
|Thema4554||Google, Microsoft, & Co. – How Big is the Influence of Enterprises on Computer Science Research?|
|Thema4574||Deep Learning + Knowledge Graphs|
All topics are open to English and German-speaking students.
Many of the thesis topics can also be written at a partner institution abroad (e.g. in Japan, Italy, France) and funded by the DAAD, given that the application is made one year in advance. More information under Web_Science/DAAD-Stipendium/en.
