Bernd Ulmann (born July 19, 1970 in Neu-Ulm) is a German computer scientist, mathematician and university lecturer[1]. He is a professor at the University of Applied Sciences for Economics and Management in Frankfurt am Main[2] and co-founder of Anabrid GmbH.[3]

Life and career[edit]

Bernd Ulmann

Bernd Ulmann studied mathematics and philosophy at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz from 1989 to 1996. He wrote his diploma thesis on cryptography and number theory. In 2009, he completed his doctorate at the University of Hamburg under Gudrun Wolfschmidt (Faszination Analogrechnen - Geschichte und Grundlagen elektronischer Analogrechner (Fascination of Analog Computing - History and Basics of Analog Computers)).[4] Ulmann has been a professor of business informatics at the Frankfurt School of Economics and Management since April 2010.[5]

In 1999 he founded the company Raven Information Technologies GmbH[6] in Bad Schwalbach. In 2000, he opened a museum for mainframe computers - in particular the VAX and Alpha processor - in Heidenrod-Kemel.[7] Ulmann also maintains a unique collection of analog computers in Bad Schwalbach.[8] Ulmann was founder and speaker of the Development SIG[9] and deputy speaker of the Research and Education SIG[10] at Connect Germany.

His hardware and software developments include the 16-bit processor QNICE[11] and the programming language 5 (Five)[12]

One of his goals is the miniaturization of analog computers to chip size[13][14], which should be "faster than digital systems"[15] and consume "one hundredth of the energy".[16] In 2020, he founded anabrid GmbH[17][18] with his colleagues Dr Sven Köppel and Lars Heimann. [19]
