Stefan @ science slam in Lübeck

Hey, I'm Stefan Otte,
machine learning engineer,
data scientist, speaker, and ex-roboticist.

Feel free to contact me via email: stefan at nodata dot science.

Primary Tech Stack

PyTorch python scikit-learn keras tensorflow flask docker terraform


...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, Luigi, XGBoost, ...


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

Freelance Machine Learning Engineer, Data Scientist, and Consultnat realizing machine learning, reinforcement learning, and data science projects for customers in different industries. Teaching ML workshops. Focus on deep learning, computer vision and MLOps.

Head of Machine Learning at JustWatch working on recommendation, personalization, discovery, and entity resolution.

Chief Data Scientist at RoomAR, working on content-based image retrieval, visual recommendation, computer vision, deep learning, and data science infrastructure.

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 and Master) 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.
