Brief Bio
Michael Kölle is a researcher currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Computer Science, focusing on the intersection of Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Computing. After obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Media Informatics in 2018, Mr. Kölle graduated with a Master’s degree in Computer Science in 2021, both from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Germany. Mr. Kölle's research primarily explores how quantum computing can be integrated with machine learning to develop innovative solutions within Quantum AI. This work aims to harness the computational powers of quantum technologies to address complex problems that are beyond the scope of classical computing methods. Alongside, Mr. Kölle is also deeply involved in studying Multi-Agent Systems, investigating how multiple intelligent agents can interact within a system to achieve individual or collective goals efficiently.
