Max Jalowski studied Wirtschaftsinformatik (B.Sc.) and Computer Science (with a focus on IT security and distributed systems) (M.Sc.) at FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg and graduated with a Master of Science in 2017. He was a student assistant at WI1 and supported the chair with the administration of the server infrastructure. Since October 2014 he is working there as a research associate.

He is currently working on IIP-Ecosphere where we are developing an ecosystem to reduce obstacles in the implementation of AI-applications in production and its related processes with the aim to foster intelligent production systems. Our work focuses on the areas innovation, stakeholder integration, service systems engineering and business model development.

His former projects include VeSiKi and MEgA. The VeSiKi project is the scientific meta-project for the BMBF (Federal Ministry of Education and Research) research program “IT-Sicherheit für Kritische Infrastrukturen” (IT security for critical infrastructures). Among other things, the project focuses on the application of open innovation methods in the mentioned research program, taking into account the special conditions in the thematic area (e.g. data protection, data security, intellectual property, etc.).

Furthermore, his own research focuses on supporting individual creativity with persuasive technology:
A common problem in creative design processes is the integration and motivation of external users to participate. Persuasive technology as a research area focuses on technologies, concepts, design principles, theories, evaluation, strategies etc. that change attitudes or behaviors of users by using persuasive technologies. This dissertation explores the application of persuasive technologies in such processes to foster the collaboration between, reduce distraction and improve knowledge and abilities of participants.

In the past, he was giving talks and workshops on the topics “More security through openness – collaborative ways to protect IT systems” and “Social Engineering with the robot NAO”.
