_R6T8961 (2)Biography: Dr. Guttmann works as a research scientist at the IBM Australian Research Lab, where he leads and defines projects around health care ICT. One focus of Guttmann’s work is to build intelligent systems that enable health care entities to deliver care with reduced cost and better health outcomes. His work addresses challenges faced by tomorrow’s world of health care: How to create and apply collaborative care technologies that cope with the large burden of chronic and mental diseases.

Prior to his role at IBM Research, Dr. Guttmann led the research themes on health care and disaster at the Etisalat British Telecom Innovation Centre (EBTIC). The theme partnered with major stakeholders, including governmental health authorities and ministries. He has been a research fellow at the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences at Monash University, where he researched how intelligent systems can improve collaborative health care. He worked also in industry projects with BT, HP and Ericsson.

Dr. Guttmann holds a PhD degree from Monash University, two Master degrees from Paderborn University (Germany) and the Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden), and a psychology degree from Stockholm University (Sweden). He organised major conferences and workshops, edited two books on intelligent agent technologies, and co-authored over 30 articles in leading conferences and journals.
