Hello

dietmar_schabus_yellow_300x300I’m Dietmar Schabus. I work as a researcher at the Austrian Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence (OFAI) in Vienna, Austria; in particular, in the Language and Interaction Technologies Group led by Brigitte Krenn.

Until July 2015, I worked at the FTW Telecommunications Research Center Vienna in the Cognitive User Interfaces Group led by Michael Pucher.

I have a computer science background from TU Wien and a PhD in electrical engineering from TU Graz (see also Master’s Thesis and PhD Thesis).

My research interest include data analysis, machine learning and artificial intelligence in the context of language and speech. Currently, I focus on natural language processing for improving the user experience in modern text-based communication systems. In the past, I was working on modeling speech signals and speech motion for audio-visual speech synthesis. For more details take a look at my List of Publications.
