Lukas Schneider

2024-NowFounder and CTO of Aedilic bulding, a marketplace for on-demand GPU compute. We offer affordable GPU instances to research labs and AI companies. The traffic is routed to data centers with idle capacity to increase operators' revenue and maximize utilization.
20233-months internship at the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt, DLR). There, I implemented a model-based trajectory planner for quadcopters. I further built a framework for learning controllers for quadcopters with successful sim2real of a position controller.
2021-2023Master of Science at ETH Zurich in Robotics, Systems and Control. For my master's thesis, I worked with the ANYmal robot at the Robotic Systems Lab. There, I had the pleasure to work with Jonas Frey and Takahiro Miki on risk-sensitive distributional RL for legged locomotion.
2018-2021Bachelor of Science at TU Darmstadt in computer science. In the final year, I mostly focused on robotics and machine learning. During this time, I conducted two semester projects implementing an efficient chess move generator and AlphaZero and wrote my bachelor's thesis on Distributional RL in Monte-Carlo Tree Search under expert guidance from Carlo D'Eramo and Tuan Dam.
Working student at secunet Security Networks AG, developing internal software tools.
20172-week internship at secunet Security Networks AG.
2-week internship at Media Secure GmbH, where I build a port scanner in Python and used it to analyze a VoIP system for vulnerabilities.
