Dr. Jonas Moßler
A man and a mission. For over a decade he has been developing AI technologies. Firstly, for the purpose of science – he used to work at the German Cancer and Research Center. After he realized, that his real vocation is bridging the relationship between humans and machines, he co-founded SUSI&James – an AI company. Since then his team has been introducing a new model of human-machine cooperation. SUSI&James offers a bilateral, partner relation, where not only users learn how to use a machine, but also the machine learns how to improve cooperation with the users. Strengthening the relations by means of AI… what a beautiful and fulfilling mission!
Besides bringing people and machines together, Dr. Moßler likes to take part in philosophical disputes and discuss current political and social issues.
