+Contacts : to see how the students learn to learn, how they master the studies, how they find their place in their lives, and finally, to see them once again, makes me very proud.
I play piano well and try to win chess games.
I studied Computer Science with focus on Artificial
Intelligence at the University of Saarbrücken. In addition, I worked on
research projects of the German Research Centre for AI in the fields of
knowledge-based systems and Natural Language Understanding. After my
graduate studies, I then joined IBM Research & Development for 5
years and IBM Software Group for 3 years. As an IT architect, I was
jointly responsible for worldwide Data Science projects in various
disciplines, e.g., Retail, Insurance, Banking, Sports analytics. At the
same time, I received my doctorate at the Goethe University
Frankfurt/Main in 2000.
Since 2003, I have been working as an
Associate Professor at the University of Luxembourg with a focus on Data
Science, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Natural Language
Processing. Importantly, I see and live his research, education and knowledge
transfer as a highly interdisciplinary task.
Currently, I am the co-director of AI Robolab, member of the board of Digital Humanities and History DTU and contribute to Esch 2022 with a project on Deep Learning for the Arts. I head the MINE research group and are currently involved in 13 PhD projects. So far, I have been member of 23 PhD defences (in Luxembourg as well as in London, Turin, Bologna and Leuven), 69 Master thesis projects and many Bachelor projects.
Some colleagues say that I am internationally recognised reviewer. In this light, I serve for the Leibniz Association, Springer, ACM, IEEE and as a PC member at international conferences such as AAMAS, ACM SAC, CogSci, ECML-PKDD, Digital Humanities, IEEE CBMS and others. Christoph maintains contacts to secondary schools in Dudelange and Kirchberg and organises lecture series in the field of AI and beyond and teaches courses at all academic levels at the University of Luxembourg in Computer Science, Mathematics, Space and Humanities for EU members at the European Commission and abroad, e.g. at Tsinghua University (2015, 2016), FU Berlin (every semester since 2018) and the University of Singapore (2019, 2020).
I am a member of the ACM, the German Cognitive
Science Society and the German Cognitive Science Society. As a national
expert, I am regularly present in the Radio (RTL and 100,7), in
newspapers and magazines (Wort, paperjam, Revue, Tageblatt) as well as
in TV (RTL Kloertext, moderated by Caroline Mart). I have
performed several projects with the national and international industry,
for example Thomson Reuters, RTL, IEE, and POST. Finally, 3 of my former
PhD students work now for a their founded start-up named Zortify.
