The king of data becomes a professor
Enversions CTO, Bo Thiesson, has been appointed Honorary Professor at the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University.
He eats bits and bytes for breakfast and tops them off with some Big Data for a light lunch. He has developed data solutions for millions of people worldwide during his 17 years in Microsoft’s research department. Since summer 2015, he has used his skills to develop solutions for decision support systems in the healthcare sector as chief technology officer at Enversion A/S.
His name is Bo Thiesson, and he belongs to the world elite in computer science and machine learning. He is one of the few in the world who has done research and transformed his research into practice. As a rule, people within this area are either theoretically or practically inclined. Bo Thiesson has many years of experience in both theory and practice, and that is unique.
Recently, Bo Thiesson was appointed honorary professor at the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University, and he and the computer company Enversion A/S join Aarhus University in an effort to strengthen and develop research in computer technology – especially with focus on decision analytics and machine learning in the healthcare sector, something that will benefit us all.
‘We are excited about the collaboration with Aarhus University. We look forward to becoming a part of building a knowledge center within decision analytics that focuses on the healthcare sector. It is our favorite topic and very close to our hearts here at Enversion. We mean it when we say that we want to help Danes become the healthiest people in the world. We do not know how to develop medicine, but we know how to develop data solutions that make the vast knowledge readily available in the healthcare system useful to for instance doctors and researchers,’ says Jacob Høy Berthelsen, founder of Enversion A/S.
The collaboration with Aarhus University provides some really exciting growth opportunities for both the university and Enversion.
’Overall, this is a very good example of how the universities and the business world should collaborate to create growth within a focus area’, says Bo Thiesson, who is looking forward to working with the students.
’The field means a lot to me; otherwise, I would not have worked this intensely for so many years in this line of work. What really gets me going every day is when a young person approaches me and says, ”You know what Bo, what you said there, it really made a difference to me. ”That’s cool,’ says Bo Thiesson.
