Actively working in science, consulting and design, I bring theory into operation. I attend projects all the way from decision to implementation and support clients in building the necessary competences. I deliver no convenience products, but individual solutions.
I am a one-stop provider of knowledge about human and artificial intelligence, user experience and agile software development, combining perspectives from science and practical experience. How do you profit from this?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is being much discussed, with visions of the future between apocalypse and utopia. AI is often equalized with statistical machine learning, but it has much more to offer: optimization and search algorithms plan complex processes, sensory networks collect data and supervise environmental factors and production processes, agent architectures abstract from single tasks towards interactive systems. In spite of all successes many basic concepts of intelligence and cognition are still unknown.
User Experience Design
User Experience Design takes the viewpoint of users. It comprises not only appealing user interfaces, but includes all interactions between human and machine. I use scientific findings on perception, attention, memory and decision making and combine them with the technical potentials of software development and artificial intelligence. In this way, I design user experiences that enhance the strengths of humans with the stengths of computers.
In everyday life people master comlex decisions under uncertainty and time pressure. As soon as organizations solve tasks it seems these capabilities are largely suppressed by rigid processes that are designed contrary to what people do well. From my research on human and automatic decision making I transfer processes that people use successfully in everyday life to organizational routines. This corresponds roughly the trend of agile software development, but it is much more general.
I support you in strategic decisions. Can deep learning help your company? Is your product accessible for any user? Which implementation options are there for a desired application? I investigate and review opportunities and risks in your specific context.
Using novel methods requires appropriate competences. I offer talks, lectures and training courses for decision makers and implementers, for example on basic techniques such as user experience design, design thinking methods, machine learning, AI programming or current issues such as robotics in care or autonomous driving.

You have decided to start a project using techniques that you have no experience with? I offer to work actively in your project, to train your team on the job or to complement your expertise, helping you to initiate and implement your project in transdisciplinary teams.
