Abstract

Tomi Kauppinen is a project leader and docent at the Aalto University School of Science in Finland. He holds a habilitation (2014) in geoinformatics from the University of Muenster (WWU) in Germany, and a title of docent (2014) and a Ph.D. (2010) in media technology from the Aalto University. From April 2014 to September 2014 he was appointed as the Cognitive Systems Substitute Professor at the University of Bremen in Germany, and since 2015 he is a Privatdozent at WWU. He has been active in opening and sharing data, and created semantic recommendation, exploration and visualization tools with artificial intelligence (AI) and knowledge representation techniques. A central theme in his work and teaching is data science and information visualization applied to spatiotemporal phenomena, and supporting understanding of related cognitive processes. He has published or edited around 90 papers/books and organized several international tutorials and workshops on information visualization, linked data, spatial thinking and learning. He is currently coordinating a new Aalto University wide strategic development project, Aalto Online Learning A!OLE.
