In Detail

Since 1995, Jürgen has been co-director of the Swiss AI Lab IDSIA in Lugano, since 2009 also professor of Artificial Intelligence at the University of Lugano. Between 2009 and 2012, the recurrent neural networks and deep feed forward neural networks developed in his research group have won eight international competitions in pattern recognition and machine learning. In honour of his achievements he was elected to the European Academy of Sciences and Arts in 2008.


Ever since the age of 15 Jürgen has wanted to build AI smarter than himself. This ambitious approach has revolutionised machine learning and AI.Resulting in it being used in 3 billion smart phones. Facebook used it billions of times per day and voice recognition such as Google's speech, Apple's Siri and Amazon's Alexa are heavily dependent on it. He offers an insight to all these amazing technological miracles supported by his theory of creativity and curiosity, science, music and humour.
