About

Since March 2008 I am a PhD student in the Artificial Intelligence Group at Bielefeld University. I am working as a research associate in the Center of Excellence Cognitive Interaction Technology (CITEC). Within my thesis, I aim to provide the conversational agent Max with an access to the online encyclopedia Wikipedia to extend his current state of knowledge and to make him more context-aware.
