I am Rainer Typke, a computer scientist working at the OFAI (Österreichisches Forschungsinstitut für Artificial Intelligence) in Vienna, Austria (this is my homepage).

I completed a MSc at the Universität Karlsruhe, Germany, in 1999. From 1999 until 2003 I worked as a consultant for Accenture, mainly on electronic trading platforms. From 2003 until 2007, I did my PhD in music information retrieval at the Universiteit Utrecht, the Netherlands.
