Dr.-Ing. Christopher Krauss is Research Engineer and Senior Project Manager at the Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems (FOKUS) and specializes in the R&D of topics dealing with Personalization, Intelligent Tutoring Systems, and Connected TVs. He has been involved in multiple public founded national and international projects (e.g. Smart Learning I & II, FI-Content I & II, User Centric Networking, Global ITV) and managed many projects for different industry customers (e.g., Red Bull, Deutsche Welle, MediaBroadcast, ImmobilienScout24, Holtzbrinck Publishing Group, Cornelsen, Bertelsmann Arvato, Axel Springer, Rovi, and Deutsche Telekom).

Christopher Krauss received his Master of Science in Media Informatics (very good with distinction) with the completion of his thesis “Personalized Recommendations to be displayed on SmartTVs” at Beuth University of Applied Sciences and Fraunhofer FOKUS in 2012. From 2015 until 2017, he participated in the BMBF-funded Software Campus program which trains and professionally develops tomorrow’s senior IT executives. In June 2018, Christopher Krauss completed his PhD project (with distinction/ summa cum laude) at the TU Berlin for the degree of “Doktor der Ingenieurwissenschaften (Dr.-Ing.)”. His dissertation has the title “Time-Dependent Recommender Systems for the Prediction of Appropriate Learning Objects”.
