Biography

Researcher at TU Wien & Complexity Science Hub Vienna and Senior Data Scientist at Magenta Austria. Personally, I prefer the title Senior Software Engineer with a Specialization in Data.

Georg Heiler lives for insights: A lot of people think that the semantics behind data matters as it is only relevant in the proper context. Deriving the correct context when analyzing data can be challenging in very noisy datasets such as HFC telemetry or mobility analytics data.

Georg’s interests are in working with large-scale spatio-temporal graph data. He considers an end-to-end view of the data pipelines and holistic data architecture. As an experienced data scientist in the industry, he has delivered use cases concerning fraud detection, mobility analytics and predictive maintenance in cable networks. As part of his doctoral studies, he researched inferring supply networks and analyzed the impact on society of government interventions due to the COVID-19 pandemic using mobility data. As a lecturer on data science and big data, he shares his enthusiasm for data with up-and-coming data talents. He is a speaker and organizer at meetups to develop the data science community.

Personal insights about Georg: he loves rowing and hiking in the mountains.
