Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hendrik Wöhrle studied bioinformatics as well as electrical engineering and information technology at the Free University of Berlin and the Fernuniversität in Hagen. After working in industry as a software developer for signal processing and numerical algorithms in the field of biosignal analysis, he joined the Robotics Innovation Center of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence, where he worked on signal processing and machine learning for brain computer interfaces, data flow architectures for reconfigurable hardware, and rehabilitation robotics. In 2017, he received his PhD in computer science on application-specific computer architectures for artificial intelligence from the University of Bremen. Since 2019 he is professor for Intelligent Autonomous Sensor and Actuator Systems at Dortmund University of Applied Sciences. His current research areas are the development of efficient and low-power computer architectures for machine learning in miniaturized and embedded systems, robotics and biomedical engineering. Machine learning techniques are again used to design and optimize these systems. His research also addresses the reverse perspective, i.e., the development and application of machine learning techniques for the optimization of signal processing system, for Internet of Things applications, and for the design of specialized or domain- and application-specific hardware architectures for machine learning and robotics.
