Dr. Ulrich Scholz

Currently, I'm working for the Seeburger AG. Until Summer 2010 I was working at the European Media Laboratory for the MUSIC project, which develops a design methodology and an architecture for distributed systems supporting the efficient design and implementation of self-adapting applications in ubiquitous computing environments. In May 2010, it successfully demonstrated its results in a large demo in the Paris subway, have a look here for a coverage of the event on Euronews Futuris.

My former projects include DynAMITE and DaMiT. I have been research assistant at the Technische Universität Darmstadt and studied Informatics (Computer Science) at the Technische Universität Darmstadt and at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

Research interests

My research interests include symbolic reasoning, Artificial Intelligence planning, and constraint programming. Recently, I applied these techniques to utility-based adaptation of component-based applications and to service-oriented architectures. I am also interested in theorem proving and programming in Prolog.

My scientific starting point - and the topic of my PhD thesis - is AI planning, and here especially the development of preprocessing techniques (domain analysis).
