Hi!
I'm Bernd,
a Software guy in Graz, Austria.

I mainly enjoy client-side algorithmic work and did research on Privacy aware Machine Learning
(graphs, anonymization & the GDPR...)

About Me

    I grew up in the countryside where it usually snowed till May. As a child, I was an avid skier, skater, climed every tree I could find & one of those winters I built the Discovery (from Space Odyssey) in my parent's backyard (I cannot remember the scale ;-)

    I despised high-school and dropped out in order to become a sci-fi author; although I managed to write a novel titled "Arkadia - the youngest dynasty" my publishing career went largely undistinguished ;-)

    At university I started out studying economics, but quickly decided to switch to Software Development, since I had no intention spending the rest of my days faking statistics to the glory of my bosses.

    After training in C++, Java, and the usual CS subjects for a while, I discovered the emerging power of the browser platform for algorithmic work, its ease of deployment and endless scaling potential; so I decided to build my future career on those technologies.

    I realized I needed more theoretical background in Machine Learning & algorithms to fulfill my dreams, so i joined a research group, wrote papers on anonymization & gave talks at conferences for a while.

    Currently I am in the process of founding iNodis, a startup offering context-aware, client-side, graph-based recommendations as a service.

Projects

With browsers becoming powerful computational VMs around 2010, we saw first impressive examples of what this new platform could achieve - A Linux kernel booting inside a browser, "Famous" 3D-animations in pure CSS & even Javascript convolutional networks...
Years later, these technologies have matured to a point where I believe they could replace server-side or workstation computations completely, and I am striving to bring graph algorithms & recommender engines to the client. Here are some projects i've been working on recently:


Graph extraction from images

GraphiniusJS - in-browser graph library

GraphiniusVIS - 3D graph visualization

Local sphere recommender engine
