Philipp Slusallek is Scientific Director at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), where he heads the research area “Agents and Simulated Reality” since 2008. He is also Director for Research at the "Intel Visual Computing Institute”, a central research institute at Saarland University founded in 2009 in collaboration with Intel, DFKI, and the two local Max-Planck-Institutes. At Saarland University he has been a professor for Computer Graphics since 1999 and a Principle Investigator at the German Excellence-Cluster on “Multimodal Computing and Interaction” since 2007. Before coming to Saarland University, he was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Stanford University, USA. He studied physics in Frankfurt and Tübingen (Diploma/M.Sc.) and got his PhD in Computer Science from Erlangen University. His general research interest is in creating distributed, immersive, collaborative, and interactive 3D environments for simulation, analysis, visualization, training, and decision making for various application areas. Towards this goal his research covers a wide range of topics including real-time realistic graphics, novel rendering and lighting simulation algorithms, motion synthesis, artificial intelligence and multi-agent technology, high-performance computing, computational 3D imaging, service-oriented architectures and 3D-Internet technology, fast & low-latency semantic communication infrastructures, smart systems security, and others.
