Martin Stettinger

We are very happy to wel­come our new coll­eague Martin Stett­inger in the Depart­ment of In­for­matics Systems. Martin has fin­i­shed his PhD in In­for­ma­tics at the Graz Uni­ver­sity of Tech­no­lo­gy. He started his work in the Inter­active Sys­tems re­search group in Jan­uary 2020 in the Mass Cust­om­i­zation 4.0 pro­ject. Martin will focus his work on the de­ve­lop­ment of inno­va­tive pro­ducts and serv­ices to sup­port small and medium-sized enter­pri­ses (SME) in ques­tions of mass cust­om­i­zation. Regard­ing ser­vices, tools are de­ve­loped to sur­vey the status of know­ledge in mass cust­o­mi­zation on the one hand, and to train comp­anies to extend their know­ledge in this do­main on the other hand. Regard­ing pro­ducts, Martin and coll­eagues will deve­lop a smart home con­fi­gu­rator to en­able SME to cust­o­mize the sys­tems and pro­ducts they offer to the cust­omers’ needs. The con­fi­gu­rator will con­sist of two main parts: an AI-based back­end and an appro­pri­ate user in­ter­faces that allow cust­omers to easily convey their needs to the supplier (the SMEs).
