Besides my day-to-day activities, I wrote my thesis and did the necessary research. My thesis was focused on a probable move to the Chinese market, exploring the opportunities and threats. Despite it being a cool subject to write my thesis about, it is not finished yet. My graduation will probably follow in September.
Taking everything into consideration, I have had a wonderful time at Triple. A very close team with lots of people that are fun to work with, who think alike, and share a passion for football. One heck of an atmosphere, a cool office, lots of FIFA, table tennis, and more.

I spent the last five months doing my graduation internship at Triple. My assignment during this internship was on behalf of Triple’s daughter company Beyond Sports.
When I started the internship, Beyond Sports’ current application to simulate real football matches in Virtual Reality didn’t have any animation for player actions. They could add the animations by hand, but this would take a very long time. I have researched two methods for recognizing the player actions from the provided data and automatically added them to the file the application uses to simulate the matches. Five months later, the recognition system I developed, can recognize the player actions correctly with 81,9 percent.
Besides recognizing the player actions, I researched how the animations could look better in the simulation. In the simulation, it often happened that the ball would not connect with the player when he would, for example, kick the ball. To fix this issue, I overwrote the position data of the ball to connect it with the player. This makes the simulation look much more natural than before.
During my internship, I learned a lot about Artificial Intelligence. This subject is one of the methods I researched for my assignment, recognizing player action from the given data. I know a lot more about how AI works, what it can do and what is necessary to use it.
I really enjoyed my time at Triple. The guys I worked with in the Unity team are great company and make the days go by very quickly. Table tennis during the lunch was incredibly fun and was something I was looking forward to each day. Also, the Friday afternoon drinks were nice as well because we would get a drink and play table tennis with a lot of people.

In order to fulfill the bachelor Business IT and Management, I wrote a thesis at Triple. My thesis contains a research about a radio application called Sidestep Radio. In the past 20 weeks, I worked in the analytics department.
I had a great time during my internship. Triple is a dynamic and educational company. Despite the fact that it was a very independent research, and writing a thesis is something you have to do on your own, I’ve met a lot of friendly people. Triple has a lovely company culture, I always enjoyed coming to the office. In order to write my thesis, I needed to concentrate. On some days, it could be very noisy. Fortunately, Triple provides the space to distance yourself for a while. On other days, I would be part of the noise.
The goal of my research was to align aspects of the information technology environment of Sidestep Radio to the information requirements of the radio segment. Currently, the radio stations don’t gather enough data of the behavior and features of their target audience. In order to attract and keep the audience, the radio stations could use this data to optimize the radio programs. Sidestep Radio is an application that is able to collect behavioral data and process this into information dashboards. These dashboards can contribute to achieving the strategic goals of the radio segment.
Therefore, I researched documentation regarding the SideStep Radio project and held interviews with three different radio stations. I chose the stations BNR, Qmusic, and NH. These radio stations represent the news, commercial and regional orientated aspects of the radio segment. After gathering this information, I analyzed the differences between the current situation and the requirements. These results were used as input for designing the optimized information environment. I designed an entity relationship diagram, an architectural model, and a data warehouse model.
