Werner Zellinger

Werner Zellinger's picture

PhD student between 2016 and 2020
Master's Degree (Dipl.-Ing.) in Computer Mathematics at JKU Linz (2016)
Industrial Researcher at Software Competence Center Hagenberg since 2012 FLLL/JKU

Research interests:
I'm interested in the theoretical analysis, the mathematical description and the design of novel machine learning algorithms. Recently, I was working on new regularization-based algorithms and theoretical performance guarantees in the areas of transfer learning and generative image modeling. Applications can be found in industrial manufacturing, analytical chemistry and stereoscopic video analysis.
