Dr. Marcel Tilly
Marcel Tilly holds a PhD in Computer Science from University of Leicester. He is working as a Program Manager at Microsoft Research in Germany. In the past his work was focused on data and high-scale systems. This means working on advanced analytics, machine learning and big data was his daily bread and butter. Recently his focus is shifting more and more towards natural user interfaces which means working with speech and gestures. As a result this brings a nice combination of a smart way of handling data and on the other side understanding interaction with humans and robots in a smart way. Besides this he enjoys giving talks, writing papers, do some coding and electronic experiments.
