Co-Founders & Members
Head of the research group 'Mathematical Data Science' at the Johann Radon Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics at the Johannes Kepler University in Linz.
Numerous international research awards such as the 2014 Latsis Prize and the 2020 Alexander-von-Humboldt Professorship Award.
During his PhD studies he also entered the field of neurodevelopmental diseases, more specifically in cooperation with psychologists from the Masaryk University and the University of Haifa, he designs ML-based systems assessing graphomotor disabilities in children population.
Beside the fundamental research, he has also performed some applied research, where he designed and implemented ML pipelines for companies such as Sewio Networks s.r.o., Herman systems, s.r.o., 2N Telekomunikace, a.s., and OPTOKON, a.s.
After he finished his PhD, he established the Brain Diseases Analysis Laboratory (BDALab), which is an international laboratory employing biomedical signal processing, machine learning and statistical analysis in the research of neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental diseases.
He currently cooperates with more than 20 international partners spread around USA, Europe and the Middle East. He has participated in more than 15 European (H2020, COST, etc.) and national (Ministry of Health, Czech Science Foundation, etc.) projects. He is/was a member of an expert panel of the Czech Science Foundation, the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI), and the Research, Development and Innovation Council of the Czech government.
He is currently the head of the BDALab, managing its research activities and doing data science.
Untill now, he he has been involved in a variety of projects in both fundamental as well as applied research. Regarding the fundamental research, he has been focusing on development of advanced parametrization techniques aiming at objective computerized quantification and assessment of speech (e.g. hypokinetic dysarthria) and online handwriting (e.g. developmental dysgraphia). Concerning the applied research, he has been working on data analysis and machine learning pipelines in the national projects (Czech Republic), e.g. Ministry of Heath, Ministry of the Interior, Technology Agency, as well as in the international ones, e.g. H2020-MSCA-RISE-2016 or Interreg Central Europe.
In addition, in 2017 he started working for the Inventurist Inc., a US-based start-up focusing on product-market analysis using AI. Over time, he has been involved in the system's development on almost every level, from designing, programming, testing, machine learning, etc. This unique experience and the lessons learned boosted him above the comfort-zone of the University World and research. As one of the first members of the company, he is now very proud about what the company achieved as it moved from its very beginnings toward being successful and well-established.
Later he returned to machine learning and data science at Seznam.cz - a Czech-based search engine and one of the few remaining local competitors to Google in the world. There he worked at multiple positions ranging from Data Scientist to Head of Research Department. He focused on solving the problems mostly in domains of computer vision, NLP, semantic understanding of documents, and search engine development.
He entered the startup scene by establishing and growing the Brno office for US-EU startup studio Central Europe AI. During his stay there, he also worked on machine-learning based real estate price prediction startup.
Lukas is currently working mostly as a consultant, helping various companies with building data science departments, teams, products, and projects.
