Siemens silicon valley researchers apply their expertise with dedication to make machines smarter and more collaborative. While embedded devices become more intelligent by talking, healthcare providers, factory managers, building administrators and energy grid operators can access information to enhance their daily operations through data-driven analytics. Semantic technologies provide the basis for big data analytics by adding context-rich descriptions about the source where the data emerges.
Florian Michahelles has been heading the Siemens WoT research group since 2013. Having worked in the fields of ubiquitous and wearable computing for more than a decade, Florian’s focus at Siemens is to leverage the Web architecture and Semantic Technologies for enabling new business opportunities, especially in the fields of wearable sensing and human-robot interaction.
Mareike Kritzler has been with the Siemens WoT group since 2014. With a background in Geographic Information Systems, Augmented Reality, and localization and tracking, Mareike’s main interest lies in achieving device-independent data integration and interoperability, especially concerning location-based services, wearable sensors, and robotic devices.
Simon Mayer joined the Siemens WoT group in 2014. With a strong background in distributed systems and Web of Things research, his focus at Siemens is to apply his knowledge on (Semantic) Web technologies, functional modeling, and human-computer interaction to enable interoperability and self-configuration across devices in factory and building automation scenarios. Simon also co-chairs the international Web of Things (WoT) workshop series.
Jack Hodges’ main interests are Semantic Technologies and ontological modeling for enabling M2M collaboration and problem solving. He has a strong background in knowledge representation and reasoning, as well as natural language processing. Jack applies this to achieve interoperability and self-configuration in factory automation settings and operations software applications.
Dan Yu has been doing innovation on wireless communication, RFID and various other Internet of Things technologies. After founding a Siemens research branch in China, he joined the Siemens WoT research group since 2015, focusing on applying Internet of Things and Semantic Web Technologies to a wide range of industrial applications.
