Fraunhofer Prize Award 2011

After finishing graduate classes at RWTH Aachen University I decided to go to Fraunhofer FIT, a non-profit R&D organization at the interface between science and industry, to work on my Master thesis in the area of computer vision, human computer interaction, and gesture recognition.
