CV

Sebastian Hellmann has completed his PhD thesis under the guidance of Jens Lehmann and Sören Auer at the University of Leipzig in 2014 on the transformation of NLP tool output to RDF. Sebastian senior member of the “Agile Knowledge Engineering and Semantic Web” AKSW research center, which currently has 48 researchers (PhDs and senior researchers) focusing on semantic technology research – often in combination with other areas such as machine learning, databases, and natural language processing. At the moment, Sebastian is head of “Knowledge Integration and Language Technologies (KILT) subgroup at AKSW. He also is the executive director of the non-profit DBpedia Association. Sebastian is contributor to various open-source projects and communities such as DBpedia, NLP2RDF and OWLG and wrote code in Java, PHP, JavaScript, Scala, C & C++, MatLab, Prolog, Smodels, but now does everything in Bash and Zsh since he discovered the Ubuntu Terminal.
