Ger­hard Wohl­genannt is an assist­ant pro­fessor at the In­sti­tute of In­form­a­tion Busi­ness of the Vi­enna Uni­versity of Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness. He com­pleted his PhD thesis in the field of on­to­logy learn­ing on a method for learn­ing on­to­logy re­la­tions by com­bin­ing cor­pus-­based tech­niques and reas­on­ing on data from Se­mantic Web sources in 2010. In July 2016, he re­ceived his hab­il­it­a­tion de­gree (ve­nia do­cendi) in Busi­ness In­form­at­ics ("Wirtschaftsin­form­atik").  

Ger­hard Wohl­genannt par­ti­cip­ated in a num­ber of re­search pro­jects at the Vi­enna Uni­versity of Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness such as DI­VINE, RAVEN, IDIOM and AVALON, where he ex­ten­ded the web­Lyz­ard ar­chi­tec­ture and se­mantic ser­vices and used his ex­pert­ise in tech­no­lo­gies such as the Py­thon pro­gram­ming lan­guage and the Post­gr­eSQL DBMS.
He re­cently served as pro­ject co­ordin­ator in the DI­VINE pro­ject (fun­ded by FFG), and as Co-In­vestig­ator in the uComp pro­ject (fun­ded by EU FP7/CHIST-ERA).
