Human Centered ICT Solutions

Technology won't change the world - but communication will. Access to information is the most valuable resource in the 21st century. It's my passion to design systems to foster this access - for people, everybody, everywhere.

Hi, I'm Lutz Frommberger!

I am a freelancing researcher, consultant, and software developer.

I hold a Ph.D. in computer science, with a large record in various areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Cognitve Robotics, Mobile Interfaces, Qualitative Spatial Reasoning, ICT for Development, and Geodata Provision. My current projects are mainly on Disaster Management with mobile device support, with a special focus on developing countries, but I do data science work as well.

I used to work at University of Bremen until 2015 where I was manager of the Capacity Lab. Since 2015 I am working with the Sahana Software Foundation.
