Bernhard Balkenhol,
a German mathematician, computer scientist, associate and CEO at infinity³ GmbH [1], and visiting lecturer at University of Bielefeld [2], where he already received his Diplom in 1992, and Ph.D. degree in 1995 under supervision of Rudolf Ahlswede and Ingo Althöfer. His research interests include search algorithms and data compression. In particular, based on Jürg Nievergelt's idea of asking a sequence of yes-no-questions [3], Balkenhol elaborated on compression in encoding typical chess positions with less than 136 bits, as published in the ICCA Journal [4].
