About me

My name is Matthias Bachfischer and I’m a Data Scientist at IBM. My expertise is in building highly scalable architectures for machine learning and analytics services as well as the teams and culture around that.

I hold a M.Sc. degree in Data Science from The University of Melbourne and a B.Sc. degree in Business Information Technology from OTH Regensburg.

My research interests are in applied statistics and machine learning, and I’m particularly passionate about the applications of AI in real-world problems. During my stay at KAUST in the Laboratory Machine Intelligence and kNowledge Engineering, I worked on text classification of German-language tweets using deep learning classifiers.

In this blog, I would like to share projects that I currently work on or have worked on in the past.
