On 13 December, the Teaching Award 2023 was presented at FH JOANNEUM for outstanding achievements in the field of didactics. The award winners were traditionally honoured as part of FH JOANNEUM's Didactics Day, which this year took place under the general theme of "Innovative Teaching with Artificial Intelligence Tools". Only students nominate their lecturers for this award. The nominees then submitted their self-selected didactic concept and were selected by a jury of experts.

This year, Andreas Windisch, research group leader of Intelligent Vision Applications at the Institute DIGITAL, not only impressed his students at the Institute of Information Systems and Data Science, but also impressed the assessors with his approach "Didactic approaches in mathematics, computer science, natural sciences and technology ("MINT")".

Andreas Windisch has been part of our JOANNEUM RESEARCH community since this year. He studied theoretical particle physics at the University of Graz, where he received his doctorate with honours in 2014. After almost five years at Washington University in St. Louis, USA, he returned to Austria and initially took on the role of research team leader at the Know-Center in Graz and has now been the new research group leader of Intelligent Vision Applications at the DIGITAL Institute since September 2023. Andreas Windisch has been working in the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning since 2017. In addition to his work for JOANNEUM RESEARCH, he is also Chief Science Officer of AI Austria an independent association for the promotion of artificial intelligence. Together with his colleagues, he is currently working on national strategies for the Austrian federal government on how to deal with artificial intelligence in the future.


TV tip: Andreas Windisch will report on the rapid developments in artificial intelligence in recent decades in the "Steiermark heute" annual review 2023. Is it a curse or a blessing for people and what impact will artificial intelligence have on the jobs of the future?

To be seen on Monday, 18 December, at 8.15 pm on ORF 2!
