Mark C. Ballandies gained expertise in the fields of evolutionary algorithms, machine learning, and software development in numerous scientific and industry works.
He is an alumnus of the Foundation of German Business, president of the NGO Education Matters e.V., treasurer of the Club Alpbach Zurich and a member of the dcentgroup. He is also the founder of the netti. app, a knowledge graph editor that won as part of the EmpowerPolis project the 1st prize at the ETH Policy Challenge.
Marks research focuses on multi-dimensional incentive systems for information sharing. For his research he combines the fields of semantic networks, ethical data sharing and cryptoeconomics.
At the ETH Library Lab, Mark will further his investigation in the impact of incentives on human information sharing behaviour. In particular, he will explore together with his colleagues how a viable feedback provision mechanism can be implemented in a value-sensitive cryptoeconomic system that supports organisations and society to better self-organise.
Our increasingly complex world faces novel challenges and problems. Mark believes, that in order to address those successfully we need to adjust our decision making processes by changing the way how information and knowledge is created and shared.
