Prof. Dr. Michael Feindt
Professor of Physics, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) & Founder of the Predictive Analytics Company Blue Yonder
Blue Yonder’s entire service portfolio is based on NeuroBayes for Science. Prof. Dr. Michael Feindt is the man behind this solution. As physicist and expert in the area of predictive analytics, he invented the NeuroBayes algorithm in the year 2000. His aim was to create a tool that could be used for precise forecasting – not only for scientific research, but also for companies facing questions and issues in many different industry sectors. In total, in more than 200 scientific publications, Ph.D. and masters theses NeuroBayes plays an important role. Next to LHC experiments at CERN experiments at almost all large particle accelerator centers worldwide – DESY in Germany, Fermilab in USA and KEK in Japan -- have applied NeuroBayes successfully, and even the antimatter-search-experiment AMS operated in the International Space Station ISS. His students at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology have taken part in the Data Mining Cup since 2005, winning this prestigious prize on three separate occasions by using NeuroBayes. Prof. Dr. Michael Feindt founded the companies Phi-T in 2002 and Blue Yonder in 2008, his aim being to help companies use and evaluate their data successfully. Blue Yonder provides companies with forecasts, data patterns and automatic decisions that can be used for various different subject areas, such as sales forecasts, customer loyalty, dynamic pricing and risk assessments.
