Project Content
We are the young startup Whim_, a team of two philosophers and two software developers. We are funded by a BSS grant via HU Gründerhaus. 
At the moment, we are developing the online editor Visualink for academics in the humanities to visualize their research.
We are creating the online editor Visualink. It enables academics to visualize their ideas and theories in a graphic language and crosslink the graphics with their research material. For this, we read academic texts in the humanities and try to translate them into a visual language, thereby extending the visual content of the app. 
This is what you will be doing, too!
Tasks for Interns
  • Read texts in your subject area;
  • Visualize concepts and theories within a graphic framework;
  • Adapt the graphics based on user feedback;
  • Extend the visual database of the editor.
