Marco Rudolph studied computer science at the Leibniz University Hannover. In 2016 he was awarded by the university the 'Preis des Präsidiums' for his special academic archievements. He attained the master degree in October 2018. In his thesis 'Coding of Human Body Shapes using Neural Networks' he dealt with autoencoders on body meshes.
In November 2018 he started at the TNT to work towards his PhD. The main focus is on image-based anomaly detection for industrial defect detection. This is mostly based on statistical modeling of image features with normalizing flows. Based on his work in this area, he was invited to speak at ICPR in August 2022 as a keynote speaker for the workshop "Industrial Machine Learning". As secondary research areas, he deals with human pose estimation and interpretable machine learning.
Mr. Rudolph is also active in teaching for the TNT since several years. In 2021, he was nominated by the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of the LUH for the "APFEL" award for excellent teaching for his supervision of a course. He has also supervised more than 10 final theses and student projects.
