SAP started in 1972 as a team of five colleagues with a desire to do something new. Together, they changed enterprise software and reinvented how business was done. Today, as a market leader in enterprise application software, we remain true to our roots. That’s why we engineer solutions to fuel innovation, foster equality and spread opportunity for our employees and customers across borders and cultures.
SAP values the entrepreneurial spirit, fostering creativity and building lasting relationships with our employees. We know that a diverse and inclusive workforce keeps us competitive and provides opportunities for all. We believe that together we can transform industries, grow economics, lift up societies and sustain our environment. Because it’s the best-run businesses that make the world run better and improve people’s lives.
SAP’s security vision is built on 5 ideals to secure business: Defendable Application, Zero-Knowledge, Zero-Vulnerability, Security by Default, and Transparency.
SAP’s security research group lays the foundation for realising the vision: The 30+ researchers of the Security Research unit focus on security engineering (e.g., the automation of the secure software development lifecycle), secure business execution (e.g., business process security and security in cloud based business applications) and secure operations (e.g., secure maintenance and support of complex and heterogeneous cloud IT landscapes).
Security Research proposes a 6-month internship in its Sophia-Antipolis offices (Mougins, France).


Information from social media, IoT devices, network logs is produced in vast amount. The processing of such information, especially when it comes in semi-structured or unstructured forms, requires attention and resources. In domains like cyber security and data protection&privacy, special requirements apply to different pieces of information, and the same requirements are often applied to the artefacts such pieces are part of. Automatic processing of such artefacts and especially when they are composed of semi-structured or unstructured text parts, is in general not easy and requires fine-grained approaches for text classification and extraction.
The internship will focus on the study and development of proofs-of-concept of supervised and unsupervised approaches for Named Entity Recognition (NER) tasks. In particular, the intern will explore the most recent advancements in the domain (see [1,2,3]) for their inclusion in a number of prototypes for processing sensitive information (be them personal data according to GDPR, cyber security threat information or attack logs). The objective of NER task application is to classify relevant pieces of information in order to trigger the appropriate processing. The work will benefit from a number of already developed prototypes for the classification of pieces of information in free text, using regular expressions and AI/ML techniques.
In the above-described context, the specific goals of the internship are as follows:
  • Application of the recent approaches based on Language Models [1,2,3] for NER
  • Evaluation of results on different information sources (Github, social media, internal SAP data)
  • Integration of the results into existing prototypes

Technologies/techniques involved are: Python, Java, Docker, and AI/Machine Learning (RNN, CNN in particular)
We expect that 40% of time will be dedicated to research activities, and 60% to development


  • University Level: Last year of MSc or less if the student has a good profile
  • Good knowledge of the Python programming language
  • Good knowledge of data science and machine learning algorithms
  • Interest in research work
  • Fluency in English (working language)
  • Good oral and written communication skills
