Philipp Berens
Prof. Dr. Philipp Berens is Full Professor of Data Science at the University of Tübingen and Director of the Hertie Institute for AI in Brain Health. Also, he is Speaker of the Excellence Cluster “Machine Learning – New Perspectives for Science” and is part of the core faculty of the Tübingen AI Center. His goal is to use machine learning to enable discoveries in basic and clinical neuroscience, with a focus on ophthalmology. He is interested in developing new algorithms whose output can be integrated into scientific or clinical workflows. His work has been recognized with a DFG Heisenberg Professorship, an ERC Starting Grant and the Bernstein Award of the German Ministry for Science and Education.
We apply machine learning algorithms to enable and accelerate discoveries in neuroscience and ophthalmology, which will ultimately allow us to diagnose diseases earlier and treat them better.
