Our latest interviewee, Dr.-Ing. Susan Wegner, is responsible for the "Artificial Intelligence & Data Analytics" business unit at Lufthansa Industry Solutions in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region. Wegner has over 15 years of experience in machine learning, AI and platform/software design, and previously worked for Deutsche Telekon and Bosch, among others. A computer scientist and mathematician by profession, AI quickly became her focal point.
