Since 2010, Michael Beigl is Professor at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT, former University of Karlsruhe) and holds the chair position for
Pervasive Computing Systems. He is also head of the TECO research group since 2010 and spokesperson and co-founder of the Smart Data Innovation Lab (SDIL), co-director of the Smart Data Solution Center Baden-Wuerttemberg (SDSC-BW) , Co-Speaker of the KIT HealthTech Center and vice dean for research of the Department of Informatics.

From 2012 to 2015 he was Dean of the Faculty of Computer Science. Previously, he was Professor for Professor for Distributed and Ubiquitous Systems and Head of the DUS Research Group at the TU Braunschweig from 2006 to 2010 and Visiting Associate Professor at the Hide Tokuda Lab, Keio University, Japan in autum 2005. From 1996-2005 he was researcher and head of the TECO research group at the University of Karlsruhe, where he received his PhD (Dr.-Ing.) (2000) in Computer Science on the topic of Ubiquitous Computing Environments (communication in interactive spaces). His research interests evolve around people and services at the centre of communication and information technology in the field of Ubiquitous Computing with a focus on Wearable Computing Systems, AI driven processing of sensor generated data and Wearable Human Computer Interaction (HCI). In his industrial projects he is interested in Health Technology, Internet of Things (IoT), applied AI, mobile computing and Industry 4.0 applications. His current favourite research platforms are EdgeML and OpenEarable.
