Matthias Perkonigg
Senior Machine Learning Researcher

The hype will die down, but machine learning will be a growing part of radiology to handle radiologists’ increasing workload.

Matthias Perkonigg came to us straight from one of our most beloved resources: the Computational Imaging Research Center at the Medical University of Vienna, where Co-Founder & Chief Scientist Georg Langs is the director. As a Research Associate for the Department of Biomedical Imaging and Image-guided Therapy, he has co-authored several peer-reviewed journal and conference publications with fellow contextflow team members and advisors on topics such as « Machine Learning in Radiology: Terminology from Individual Timepoint to Trajectory » in Der Radiologe and « Continual Active Learning for Efficient Adaptation of Machine Learning Models to Changing Image Acquisition » in Information Processing in Medical Imaging. Matthias earned a MSc in Medical Informatics from TU Wien, and is working on his PhD in Medical Imaging at the Medical University of Vienna.

People would be surprised to learn…that I do ultra running up to 100km in a day.

If I wasn’t working as Senior Machine Learning Researcher, I would be…running up and down mountains.  

Most rewarding part of my job: Learning new things while building something useful
