I claimed my first single inventor patent in the field of advanced driver assistance systems while I was working on innovative 2D/3D Image processing, driving the bold vision of autonomous driving. In 2003-2005, this was more like science-fiction to the rest of the world. I continued to claim patents including network connectivity, safety & security, big data, artificial intelligence (AI) throughout various industries. Inventing innovative products, I discovered my natural leadership character and skills to share my passion and create fantastic teams. You may enjoy to view my Vita or check on numerous patents I claimed in the past. Continuously challenging myself, I became a 'Jack of all trades'. Driven by pure curiosity, dedicated to innovative solutions and supported by a strong network, there are no limits.

Given the chance to create such environments, I enjoy long-term commitments to drive my ideas and visions.

How Nation States Can Build A Viable World For 11 Billion People

Earth is currently accommodating about 7 billion people. Caused by our habits and living, we would need two of them to remain in balance. The United Nations predict humanity to grow up to 11 billion people in 2100. Therefore, it is time to reconsider our habits, alliances and politics. Why is it so difficult to promote long term objectives and adjust governance to safeguard our survival and foster long term prosperity?

Challenged during an international authorship meeting in 2015, I was invited to analyze current shortcomings and rethink our current mechanisms of national and international politics and society. Written by Gerhard Knies, Lars Holger Engelhard and Stefanie A. Engelhard, with input from Hans Blauel, Jürgen Scheffran and Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker, we present our thoughts on a new world that could accommodate human mankind and ensure prosperity. Our approach is to introduce mechanisms to foster long term thinking and respect interdependencies between nations. Viable World Network Design invites for open collaboration to develop our initial ideas.

In 2015, I was invited by Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker, Co-Chair of the Club of Rome, to join ‘Come On!’. This project brings together a wide-range of Club of Rome thinking to show what can be done to develop a more sustainable world. Ernst knew about my various studies and my efforts to interlink technology, politics, economics and sociology. I became an author for the international Club of Rome.
Members are optimistic that fabulous opportunities exist to guide the world towards sustainable prosperity. So am I. In my previous academics and business profession, I observed various notable changes in our society. Our conclusion is that we need to develop a new Enlightenment that can profoundly transform the philosophical basis of society.
