About

Kristian Kersting is an Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at the Technical University of Dortmund, Germany. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Freiburg, Germany, in 2006 and moved to the Fraunhofer IAIS and the University of Bonn using a Fraunhofer ATTRACT Fellowship in 2008 after a PostDoc at MIT, USA. Before moving to the TU Dortmund University in 2013, he was appointed Assistant Professor for Spatio-Temporal Patterns in Agriculture at the University of Bonn in 2012. Additionally, he was Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Medical School of the Wake Forest University, USA, in 2012. Interactive CV

His main research interests are data mining, machine learning, and statistical relational artificial intelligence, with applications to medicine, plant phenotpying, traffic, and collective attention. He has published over 150 peer-reviewed technical papers and received

  • the ECCAI Dissertation Award 2006 for the best AI dissertation in Europe,
  • the Best Student Paper Award of the European Conference on Machine Learning (ECML) in 2006,

  • a Distinguished Lecturer Award of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena (Winter Term 2016/2017).

He was also a ERCIM Cor Baayen Award 2009 finalist, gave several tutorials at top conferences, and co-chaired SymInfOpt, BeyondLabeler, BUDA, CMPL, CoLISD, MLG, and SRL as well as the AAAI Student Abstract track and the Starting AI Research Symposium (STAIRS). Together with Stuart Russell (Berkeley), Leslie Kaelbling (MIT), Alon Halevy (Goolge), Sriraam Natarajan (Indiana) and Lilyana Mihalkova (Google) he cofounded the international workshop series on Statistical Relational AI. He served as area chair/senior PC for several top conference and co-chaired ECML PKDD 2013, the premier European venue for Machine Learning and Data Mining, the Best Paper Award Committee of KDD 2015, the premier international venue for Data Mining, and UAI 2017, one of the premier international conferences on research related to knowledge representation, learning, and reasoning in the presence of uncertainty. Currently, he is an action editor of JAIR, AIJ, DAMI, and MLJ as well as on the editorial boards of the NGC, Information, and Big Data and Cognitive Computing.
