These Speakers Are Out Of The Box And Innovative

Prof. Dr. Rudolf M. Füchslin

Prof. Dr. Rudolf M. Füchslin

Ruedi Füchslin studied theoretical physics at ETH in Zürich, where he graduated with a thesis on incompressible quantum systems at the chair of Prof. Jürg Fröhlich. In 2007, he got the opportunity to spend half a year at the ECLT, where he studied the scaling behavior of dissipative particle dynamics. He then returned to the University of Zurich, where he got a position in Prof. Rolf Pfeifer’s Artificial Intelligence Lab. Presently, he holds a position as professor of applied complex systems science and is heading the group for Applied Complex System Science at the Institute for Applied Mathematics and Physics at the School of Engineering at the Zurich University of Rudolf M. Füchslin Applied Sciences. In addition, he is co – director of the European Centre for Living Technology in Venice, Italy.

Dr. Lukas Lichtensteiger

Dr. Lukas Lichtensteiger

Lukas Lichtensteiger is a senior lecturer in mathematics at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW). He studied theoretical physics at Zurich University (UZH), where he graduated with a thesis on cosmological structure formation (with Prof. Ruth Durrer). From the same university, he obtained a PhD in robotics and artificial intelligence, where he focused on optimizing sensor and actuator morphology for more efficient machine learning (with Prof. Rolf Pfeifer). During a postdoc at Harvard University, USA (with Prof. George Whitesides), he invented a new method for cost-efficient production of thin semiconductor wafers and later co-founded a company for commercializing this technology (Siltectra GmbH, Germany, about 15 employees). At ZHAW he currently applies modeling, optimization and machine learning approaches to solving problems in the energy sector and in robotics.
