About Marcus Liwicki
Marcus Liwicki was born in 1982 in Berlin. In 2007, he defended his dissertation at the University of Bern in Switzerland, with a dissertation on automated handwriting recognition on whiteboard. He has been awarded both the CEBIT Innovation Award 2015 and the Young Investigator Award 2015. Marcus Liwicki presented his doctoral dissertation six years after he finished high school. At the age of 29, he then became the youngest professor of computer science in Germany. Today his research is largely about pattern recognition, on both a large and a small scale. It may be about loading satellite images to find geographical locations on other planets or teaching computers to read writing and analyze the text. Currently he is chaired professor at Luleå University of Technology and a senior assistant in the University of Fribourg. Marcus Liwicki is a co-author of the book "Recognition of Whiteboard Notes – Online, Offline, and Combination", published by World Scientific in October 2008 and he has more than 200 publications.
