Alumnus of the Pattern Recognition Lab of the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg

Research on intelligent systems which uses expert knowledge and improve by machine learning

General research interests

In contrast to the other members of the pattern recognition team my research interests focus mainly on artificial intelligence topics like knowledge based systems / expert systems but also machine learning and clustering techniques.


Expert systems

One of my research goals is to design and implement an expert systems in an automated production environment. The EPS shall run in a real environment and is not developed for pure scientific interests.


Machine learning

Subsequently to the first goal the next step in my research is to use techniques of ML to either improve the quality and quantity of the knowledge base of the developed EPS or to convert the EPS, e. g. into a decision tree.


Strategy games / Game AI

During my basic studies I had enough time to do some very personal research in the area of computer games (long ago like you can guess from the picture to the right). Unfortunately, after getting serious in the last years I had to put this research area on hold.
