Joachim Schaper is the Vice President Americas at SAP Research Labs. His presentation is titled Smart Items in the Enterprise. SAP Labs is using smart technologies to provide a holistic service-oriented architecture for the seamless integration of real-world data and events with enterprise software. This approach exploits the capabilities of current, emerging and future ubiquitous pervasive computing technologies, used reliably to assist enterprise-level decision making. Distributing business logic to the periphery of the network, with logic on the item, enables new and improved business processes at the 'point-of-action', improving enterprise system response time and scalability. Many companies are beginning to use these new tools to provide high-value services that can be enabled and distributed through an enterprise service architecture.
As part of SAP’s Research team, Joachim is responsible for all strategic research programs in North America. Beginning in August of 2003, his primary areas of expertise include E-learning, Smart Items, Mobile Computing, Technology for Application Integration, and Advanced Customer Interfaces.Joachim began his career at SAP in 1999 as the head of the Campus-based Engineering Center (CEC) in Karlsruhe. As director for the EMEA region of the SAP Research team, he executed the transitioning of this group to SAP AG, then further expanded the team to locations in France and South Africa.
Prior to joining SAP, Joachim worked at the European Applied Research Centre (EARC) of Digital Equipment GmbH. From 1989 to 1997 he was responsible for user interfaces and object-orientated modeling and programming for teaching and learning systems. During that time, Joachim was a project manager of a four-year research program with Deutsche Telekom AG. In this role he developed broadband multimedia teleservices in association with other research associates and system manufactures including IBM, HP, Siemens, GMD, FhG, and TU Berlin.
Currently, Joachim is a member of the DFKI advisory board center for Artificial Intelligence, as well as a member of the advisory boards of various SMEs. He also represents SAP on the IST Advisory Board for the European Commission.
Joachim received his diploma in computer science in 1988 from the Technical University of Karlsruhe, and went on to receive his doctoral degree (Doctor of Natural Science) in 1995 as well. Joachim contributes to numerous academic events such as hosting seminars, practical training courses and lectures for the EU. He has written several publications for academic journal and congresses.
Andreas Olligschlaeger is the President of TruNorth Data Systems. The title of his talk is Advanced IT and Security Systems in Law Enforcement. The use of information technology in law enforcement has traditionally lagged behind private industry and increasingly even consumers. This talk focuses on the current state of the art in law enforcement technology as well as new technologies in development. Central to the successful adoption and use of new technologies in pervasive computing, data mining, forecasting, and other areas is the resolution of privacy concerns by the general public. Olligschlaeger was formerly Systems Scientist at the Department of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University. He has over 18 years experience working with advanced database systems and GIS, and is internationally recognized for his pioneering efforts in designing, developing and implementing state-of-art law enforcement information systems. He was the first person to automate geocoding of video, using speech recognition and entity extraction techniques. National and international media have documented Dr. Olligschlaeger's work with local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies.
Dr. Andreas (Olli) M. Olligschlaeger was formerly Systems Scientist at the Department of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University. He has over 18 years experience working with advanced database systems and GIS, and is internationally recognized for his pioneering efforts in designing, developing and implementing state-of-art law enforcement information systems. The Pittsburgh Drug Market Analysis Program GIS that he developed in the early 1990's was the most advanced crime analysis GIS of its time. His dissertation research on crime leading indicators and neural network forecast methods was seminal in establishing the potential for crime forecasting. He has also developed a number of innovative techniques for automatically processing and geocoding massive amounts of data. He was the first person to automate geocoding of video, using speech recognition and entity extraction techniques.
Dr. Olligschlaeger's work with local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies has been documented by national and international media. He is a regular invited speaker at crime mapping conferences, and is a member of the International Association of Crime Analysts, where he is a member of the Crime Analyst Certification Committee. In addition, Dr. Olligschlaeger serves on the advisory board of the High Tech Crime Consortium.
From ForecastingPrinciples.com: One of the factors leading to increased attention to crime forecasting in the U.S. was the completion of Andreas M. Olligschlaeger's Ph.D. dissertation (Carnegie Mellon University, 1997), Spatial Analysis of Crime Using GIS-Based Data: Weighted Spatial Adaptive Filtering and Chaotic Cellular Forecasting with Applications to Street Level Drug Markets. Presentations by Olligschlaeger at the second and third Crime Mapping Research Conferences held by the National Institute of Justice showed that short-term, leading indicator models could forecast crime in small areas with reasonable accuracy. About this time, police departments across the country were having big successes in mapping real-time crime data, and were thus primed for the next step of one-month-ahead crime forecasts.
