Manfred Hauswirth is the managing director (CEO) of the Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems (FOKUS) and a full professor for “Open Distributed Systems” at the Technical University Berlin. Before he had been deputy director of the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI, now DSI) and a professor at the National University of Ireland, Galway.
His research is on distributed information systems, Internet of Things, data stream processing and Linked Data, semantics and AI. He has won several international awards for his work in these areas and is active in many scientific and political committees around digitization.
He is a director and principal investigator in the Weizenbaum Institute, the German Internet Institute, and a principal investigator in the Einstein Center Digital Future (ECDF), in the Berlin Big Data Center (BBDC), in the Berlin Institute for the Foundations of Learning and Data (BIFOLD) and in the Helmholtz-Einstein International Berlin Research School in Data Science (HEIBRiDS). Manfred Hauswirth is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Services Computing and of the ACM Transactions on Internet Technology, a member of the IEEE Computer Society Conference Advisory Committee, partner in the Web Science Trust Network of Laboratories (WSTNet), co-speaker of the area quantum computing in Fraunhofer, speaker of the competency network quantum computing of Fraunhofer, co-speaker of the Fraunhofer strategic research field quantum computing, speaker of the Fraunhofer Center for the Security of Socio-Technical Systems (Fraunhofer SIRIOS), speaker of Fraunhofer’s Berlin Center for Digital Transformation (2016-2018), a director of the Fraunhofer Academy, as well as a member in numerous boards, committees and expert networks around digitization.
Manfred Hauswirth is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and a member of the German Informatics Society (GI).
