Achievements

CeBit Award 2013 winner in the category “Young Innovator” for the Semantic TV system Swoozy. The Swoozy System is the first pure semantic-based TV system that enables users to combine the power of the semantic web and television. The system can be used with a motion controller. While a video is played, new enriched content such as pictures, informations and videos are displayed. These new contents are retrieved over the Web 3.0 or semantic web and over well known web services like YouTube™, DBPedia, Freebase or Flickr™ and reinterpreted (re-orchestrated) by the Swoozy Cloud.

What else?

  • User Interface design and multimodal user experiences (Multitouch and extended interactions with intelligent interfaces (motion controller (Kinect, LeapMotion) and voice interactions)
  • Web design (AJAX/HTML5/CSS3), conception and user experience prototyping
  • Adobe Animate (ActionScript 3 & 2)
  • Blender
  • Unity 3D programming (for Game development and 3D based interfaces)
  • Android App development (Java)
  • iOS App development (Objective C for iPhone – iPad and iPhone)
  • C#
  • and of course some very old programming languages like Symbian OS
  • Video-editing with Adobe After Effects and Premiere
