Brief CV

Christoph Schommer studied Artificial Intelligence at the University of Saarbrücken and at the German Research Center for AI before working for 8 years at IBM R&D in the area of "Data Science/Business Intelligence". At the same time, he completed his PhD in Medical Informatics at the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main. In October 2003, Christoph was appointed Associate Professor at the University of Luxembourg.

Today, he leads a research group that conducts interdisciplinary research through the application of machine learning, data science and natural language processing. Christoph is an internationally recognised scientific reviewer and works for the Leibniz Association, Dutch Research Council, Springer and IEEE, among others. He is a PC member of more than 100 international conferences such as IJCAI, AAMAS, SAC, CogSci, ECML, DH and others.

Christoph regularly organises lecture series/Ph.D. workshops and is the author of about 100 scientific papers. He has supervised 29 PhD students in Luxembourg, London, and Bologna and is currently supervising another 9 PhD students. He has taught around 150 courses at the University of Luxembourg and at several other universities abroad, e.g. FU Berlin (every semester since summer 2018), U Potsdam (2002, 2018), Goethe Frankfurt/Main (2000-2006), at Tsinghua in Beijing (2015-16 ) and in Singapore (SUTD; 2019-2021).

Christoph is constantly present in newspapers, radio and television as well as at schools. Numerous projects with industry (RTL, IEE, P&T, CHL, and others) round off his working life. Further information (but not regularly updated): giraffe.lu linked.in g.scholar researchgate Orcid academia.edu

Leitmotif

Modern computer machines and algorithmic intelligence have made it possible that large amounts of data can be collected, retrieved, and analyzed from a variety of sources. This offers a high potential and many challenges, but raises also questions, for example, how data can efficiently be managed, processed, and retrieved, which algorithms can and should be used to extract knowledge out of it, and whether (or not) these extracted patterns are really reliable and durable. Also, the selection of the correct answer(s) to these findings, as for example a new marketing campaign, will lead to data back again, but then the data situation is quite different to the previous situation; the data life-cycle refers to a loop that continues:

  • Guest Lecturer at Goethe-University Frankfurt/Main (2001- 2007)
  • Guest Lecturer at Singapore University of Technology and Design (2019 - 2021)

Courses

In this regard, the Bachelor courses are concerned with Data Science, focusing on applications. Here, we concern aspects like Data Modeling and SQL, modern Data Management systems, and Data Quality (part I) as well as Database Transactions and Concurrency, ACID, Data Security and Privacy Data Visualization, Data Mining, and Data Warehousing (part II). The Master courses concern more scientific aspects in the information area: Information Retrieval (Boolean Model, Dictionaries, Natural Language Processing, Vector Space Model, Ranking, Evaluation, Text Classification, PageRank, etc), Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery (Preprocessing, Machine Learning algorithms, Interpretation and Evaluation), Machine Learning (Deeper insights in Machine Learning algorithmic). The learning outcome for each course is an understanding of the content. I attach importance to the 'why' rather than to the 'how', encouraging students to look for alternatives, to be curious and critical, and to understand problems from different perspectives.
