Yvo Meeres Application 2021
My name is Yvo Meeres and I am reapplying for membership in the XSF.
I am an interdisciplinary scientist in the areas of theoretical computer science, AI and natural language acquisition.
About my nick
My nick name is eevvoor.
- Eevvoor is an English transliteration of yvo plus an r.
- Handwritten it reminds of error. The connotation error suits well to me since I am very good at running into bugs in SW, HW or real life.
My XMPP projects and activities
Hamburg XMPP Meetup: I founded the Hamburg XMPP meetup in 2018.
Berlin XMPP Meetup: the monthly Meetup in Berlin is one of my favorite monthly activities.
Socially: I motivate people to move away their chat activities from the global players.
Research: ANIS – Artificial and Natural Intelligence in Semantics is a planned research project. My colleague flammie and me wrote the ANIS research proposal with XMPP as one of the scientific methods. In case of funding, a server-side solution for enhanced media access is planned which would incorporate smart techniques like machine translation or automated media search. Above sketched new features would be accessible via XMPP clients of all flavors. This means that interoperability has for me higher priority over feature-richness.
XMPP - Why I love it
My interests are FLOSS, encryption and decentralization. As a logical consequence, I love XMPP.
