    Prof. Dr.-Ing. Guido Dartmann has been a professor at the Environmental Campus Birkenfeld since 2016. His research focuses on distributed systems and machine learning. A particular focus is on optimizing future distributed systems so that they are resource efficient. He also conducts research on data analytic methods for analyzing multimodal sensor data streams. In 2017, he founded the Distributed Systems and Artificial Intelligence research group. The working group is part of the Institute for Software Systems at the Environmental Campus Birkenfeld.


Basic Research

  • A current challenge is the distributed and at the same time efficient implementation (in hardware and software) of complex applications in which, for example, algorithms of multimodal sensor signal processing and machine learning for sensor data streams in the edge domain must be implemented in an energy-efficient manner. Current and future applications consist of heterogeneous IoT end nodes that need to generate and interpret high-dimensional data sets. Such systems are increasingly organized in a decentralized manner and require concepts for distributed algorithms with resource-efficient local data preprocessing (edge computing). For efficient processing of data streams in such systems, we explore distributed information processing methods and their decentralized implementation in protocols, software and hardware.

Application related Research

  • The research is interdisciplinary and forms a bridge to other working groups and departments. The technologies developed and researched in the team are particularly related to current application areas (sustainability, resource efficiency, industry, logistics, economics, health, and natural sciences).

Activities as a Reviewer

  • Reviewer for various IEEE journals and conferences.
