About the article
Thomas Hepp has been a PhD student in the Information Science group at the University of Constance since 2016. His research focuses on blockchain technology and how it can be used to increase transparency and reproducibility in supply chains. In addition to theoretical knowledge, Thomas is passionate about transferring these research results into an innovative product, which is why he is co-founder and CTO of OriginStamp.
Alexander Schoenhals is a PhD candidate at Daimler AG, supervised at the University of Konstanz. In the past, he has implemented several interactive systems in VR/AR with the main emphasis on haptic feedback. His current research focuses on interactive methods to recognize, track and protect intellectual property in the very first stage of the innovation cycle with novel technologies. This plan requires an interdisciplinary exchange, therefore he maintains a lively exchange with business representatives, legal experts and also representatives of his area of expertise - computer science.
Christopher Gondek is a computer science master student at the Computer and Information Science Department of the University of Konstanz, Germany. Currently, he is also serving as a backend developer for OriginStamp. His work is mainly focusing on blockchain technology and data science. Christopher is also passionate about competitive programming, where algorithms and data structures are put to use.
Prof. Dr. Bela Gipp leads the Information Science Group at the University of Konstanz, Germany. His research lies at the intersection of information science and data science, where he focuses on the retrieval, analysis, and visualization of large volumes of data. The implications of blockchain technology – for the benefit of both industry and society – is another research domain Bela is passionate about. Currently, he serves as a juror and the university partner for the worlds largest Blockchain Competition.
