Internship at University of Oulu -interim report-

I’m Yuma Ouchi, M1 student.
Currently I am studying abroad as internship student for one month at University of Oulu. Since half of the internship period has passed, I will make an interim report.

I belong to the group of Prof. Janne in Department of Computer Science and Engineering. In this internship, I decided to learn the basis of multi-view stereo while discussing with Prof. Janne. At first I don’t have confidence in my English ability, but I can somehow discuss with him because he can listen to my unclear English.

In my department, one room is allocated to about 2 to 4 people. Below is the state of my laboratory.




There are two Chinese students in the same room. For that reason, despite studying in Finland, I usually act with Chinese students. Last weekend I had traditional Chinese dishes at the student dormitory. I appreciate their support for everything around me.




Next, I would like to mention Finland. Before studying abroad, I was worried that it was too cold to bear. But It was okay as it was past the cold peak. Sensually it is almost the same as Sapporo that I went there one month ago. Having said that, the sunshine time in this time of Finland is too short (about 5-6 hours). And, because I am in the university during the day, I feel that I have not seen the cityscape of bright time yet.

It may seem like Finnish negative publicity so far, but actually I am enjoying including such things.

I will make a final report after returning Japan.
