Christian Winkler founded his first software company while finishing his Ph.D. He has worked for 20 years with Internet technologies. Recently, he has focused on working with large amounts of data or many users. As big data applications become more and more popular, there are a lot of interesting projects. Data does not have to be persisted only, but many aggregates have to be calculated and specific data must be found.
Therefore he concentrates on intelligent algorithms like machine
Learning which open a whole new view for interpretation. Often this needs a sophisticated visualization, so he is also interested in these frontend technologies.
