Hi, I’m Jochen Görtler 👋
I am a self-employed software engineer and research scientist specializing in helping companies gain a deeper understanding of their machine learning models by creating hand-tailored interactive visualization systems.
With a PhD from the University of Konstanz, I have spent several years researching and developing better ways to handle uncertainty in visual computing. My work includes creating novel approaches to visually understand and evaluate machine learning methods. For instance, during my research internship at Apple, I developed Neo, a tool that generalizes confusion matrices to hierarchical and multi-output labels. I presented my work at the leading conferences in human-computer interaction and visualization.
I also have 5+ years of experience programming in Rust with a focus on systems programming, computer graphics, and backend development.
