Stefan @ science slam in Lübeck

Hey, I'm Stefan Otte,
data scientist and

I like solving tough problems!

I'm a machine learner, data scientist, ex-roboticist, and consultant. I like turning crazy ideas into production systems using data science and software engineering.

Feel free to contact me via email: my_firstname dot otte at gmail dot com.

Primary Tech Stack

python scikit-learn PyTorch keras tensorflow flask docker git

...but I'm pretty pragmatic when it comes to tech, tools, and methods. I also use Elixir/Erlang/OTP, C++, Java, Scala, Clojure, git, Make, AWS, GCP, RabbitMQ, H2O, Luigi, ...


I like giving talks about machine learning related topics. This is me at a science slam in Lübeck where I talked about "Soccer, robotics, and recursive state estimation".

Short Bio

Senior Machine Learner at RoomAR, improving search and recommendation with classic and neural information retrieval methods using multi modal data (text, structured data and images).

Data Scientist at The unbelievable Machine Company, consulting and realization of agile data science projects for customers in different industries. Responsible for the full pipeline: from the idea, scoping, planning, to the implementation of the MVP. Working with structured and unstructured data (text and images).

Head of Technology at Karosso, doing data science in python and developing a real time bidding engine in Elixir/OTP.

Research scientist at the Machine Learning and Robotics Lab (MLR) at the University Stuttgart, Germany, applying machine learning methods in the fields of robotics. More specifically, I applied active learning methods to enable robots to detect degrees of freedom by manipulating their environments. My supervisor was Prof. Marc Toussaint.

Programmer at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in the Department for Adaptive Behavior and Cognition on the EU project LarKC.

Computer Science student (Bachelor 2012 and Master 2013) at the Freie Universität Berlin specializing in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics. I was part of the FUmanoids robot soccer team for four years and together we won many national and international awards/competitions.
