Background & CV

From 1993 until 1999, Felix studied Japanese and Linguistics in Berlin, Nagoya (Japan) and Tokyo. Since 1999 he worked in the Department of Computational Linguistics and Text-technology, at the University of Bielefeld (Germany), where he finished his PhD in 2004. The PhD deals with the integration of heterogeneous linguistic resources using XML-based (e.g. linguistic corpora) and RDF-based (e.g. lexica, conceptual models) representations.

Felix Sasaki joined the W3C in 2005 to work in the Internationalization Activity until March 2009. In 2012 he rejoined the W3C team as a fellow on behalf of DFKI (German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence). He was co-chair of the EU sponsored MultilingualWeb-LT (MLW-LT) Working Group and co-editor of the Internationalization Tag Set (ITS) 2.0 specification. He successfully coordinated several EU projects: MLW-LT, LIDER and FREME.

In 2017, Felix left DFKI & W3C and joined LambdaWerk to work on XML in the managed health care sector. He then moved to Cornelsen Verlag GmbH. Here he is working on XML based content services and knowledge graphs for educational content. Since 2020, he worked part-time at Cornelsen and was full professor of business informatics at the Brandenburg University of Applied Sciences. In October 2021, he joined SAP to work on knowledge graph and semantic technology.
