Smart Earth Observation

My algorithms imitate human thinking

I work on new methods for remote sensing. For this I use algorithms that mirror the processes in our brain. These algorithms simulate a network consisting of simple nerve cells. The connections between these cells are continually adapted during the learning process until the artificial neural network can process raw data. At the moment, I am working on a software program that can automatically recognise buildings from a digital elevation model and model them three dimensionally.

What makes my job special is…

that I have been part of a big research community from day one. I gather interdisciplinary information and have already been able to build up my own profile during my PhD. In the meantime, I have presented my first results to an international audience.
