Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Wolfgang Wahlster is the Director and CEO of the German examine middle for man made Intelligence (DFKI GmbH) and a Professor of laptop technology on the Universität des Saarlandes, Saarbrücken. In 2000, he used to be coopted as a Professor of Computational Linguistics on the related college. additionally, he's the pinnacle of the clever person Interfaces Lab at DFKI.

He was once the clinical Director of the Verbmobil consortium on spontaneous speech translation (1993-2000), the SmartKom consortium on multimodal conversation platforms (1999-2003), and the SmartWeb consortium on cellular multimodal entry to semantic internet companies (2004-2008).

He has authored greater than one hundred fifty technical papers and six books on language know-how and clever person interfaces, and edited many books, between them the Springer titles "Verbmobil: Foundations of Speech-to-Speech Translation", "SmartKom: Foundations of Multimodal discussion Systems", and "SemProM: Foundations of Semantic Product stories for the web of Things". His learn contains multimodal and perceptive consumer interfaces, person modeling, embodied conversational brokers, clever navigation structures, semantic net providers, and resource-adaptive cognitive applied sciences.

He used to be offered the Deutscher Zukunftspreis (German destiny Award) in 2001 and he got the Federal pass of benefit, first-class, the Officer's go of the Order of benefit of the Federal Republic of Germany in 2006.

He is the manager educational consultant for info and verbal exchange applied sciences (ICT) within the learn Union of the German executive, he's a member or chair of many key overseas medical advisory and governance forums, together with the nationwide Institute of Informatics (NII) of Japan, the jury for the ecu ICT Prize of the eu fee, the Singapore enterprise for technology, expertise and learn, the SAP subsequent company & know-how Advisory Board, the guts for complicated safety learn in Darmstadt, the Intel visible Computing Institute, the Fondazione Bruno Kessler, and the longer term net Public-Private Partnership of the eu Commission.
