Dr.-Ing. Soner Emec
Soner Emec received his Dr.-Ing. Degree from the Berlin Institute of Technology for his work on “AI for In-process pattern recognition and scalable condition monitoring in automated manufacturing systems”, Germany. He studied Engineering Science (Dipl-Ing.) with a focus on mechatronics at the Berlin Institute of Technology and system dynamics in Tomsk Polytechnic University, Russia.
He works as a Senior Research Engineer in the Department of Industrial Automation Technology at the production technology center of Berlin, which is a merge Institute from Fraunhofer IPK and TU Berlin. He is responsible for the engineering faculty coordination and the launch of the Bachelor-\Master-\PhD, such as Mechatronics, Intelligent Systems and Computational Engineering at the Turkish-German University in Istanbul. The focus of his current work is to build a research laboratory for robotics and intelligent systems as well as create an ecosystem for cross-pollination between basic research, applied science and industry research to increase the spin-off rate for technology-based start-ups.
He has experience in the areas of sustainable value creation, industrial automation and information technologies, and software development. His current research work is the development of services based machine learning techniques in manufacturing, providing sustainable value creation and vertical automation.
In the past years, Soner Emec has worked on the cross-European project “Knowledge, Awareness and Prediction of Man, Machine, Material, and Method in Manufacturing” funded program of the EU. KAP is a multidisciplinary, industry-supported research initiative with 14 global partners from 8 EU countries, which aimed at developing the next generation ICT technology framework and manufacturing standards to ensure the efficient use of resources through the effective coordination of man, machine, material, and methods by an increased machine intelligence across the automation pyramid.
