Consultancy in Patents, Innovation, Big Data
Johann Stan is Patent Examiner at European Patent Office. He has a PhD in Computer Science, and he is passionate about innovation, research and development.
One of the great challenges corporations and organizations face today is selecting technology that best fits their needs. As an internationally recognized expert in data science (open/big/smart data) and armed with an engineering and research background, I have assisted corporations and government institutions overcome challenges in semantic web technologies and user-adaptive systems and assisted international institutions such as the World Bank define their open data strategy. I acted as a researcher in natural language processing and machine learning for the National Institutes of Health and I am working with some of the world's largest funding frameworks, such as H2020.
Author of patents, publications and prototypes in various scientific fields, such as information extraction and privacy preservation, Johann is interested in developing technology that improves people’s lives. He is an expert in natural language processing technologies, machine learning and knowledge management. Johann has developed methods to extract meaningful information from both unstructured content, such as tweets, and structured content, such as drug package inserts.
Johann is organizing international workshops in these fields on a regular basis. He is also member of the board of experts of the European Young Innovators Forum, sitting as our Open Data Expert, and founder of TEDxTarguMures, an independently organized TED event.
