Dr. Rudolf Schneider graduated in 06/23 and was  a research assistant at DATEXIS at Beuth University of Applied Sciences.

He studied computer science at Fachhochschule Brandenburg - University of Applied Sciences (B.Sc.) and Beuth University of Applied Sciences (M.Sc.). His current research is focused on extracting information of large amount of diverse text like clinical notes and recommending medical publications based on medical health records.

In his spare time he involves himself in the organization of a heavy metal festival and enjoys attending Chaos Computer Club events.

Rudolf is currently working in the BMWi funded MACSS project.
