Scientific Leadership

Dr Sepp Hochreiter

Founding Director

Dr Hochreiter is a pioneer in the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI). He was the first to identify the key obstacle to Deep Learning and then discovered a general approach to address this challenge. He thus became the founding father of modern Deep Learning and AI. He is also a professor at Johannes Kepler University Linz.

Dr David Kreil

Founding Director

Dr Kreil is a leading data scientist with expertise in modelling high dimensional spaces, recently collaborating with the US FDA on benchmarking and calibrating next generation sequencing assays. He has chaired the international data analysis contest CAMDA since 2008. He is also a professor at Boku University Vienna.

Dr Michael Kopp​

Founding Director

Dr Michael Kopp is a mathematician bringing decades of expertise in modelling, risk assessment, advanced data analysis and machine learning.
