Goethe University Frankfurt
Egbert Amoncio is a post-doctoral researcher in the Chair for the Study of Economic Institutions, Innovation, and East Asian Development at Goethe University Frankfurt. His primary research focuses on applying artificial intelligence (i.e., computer vision, natural language processing) to economic, managerial, and organizational questions. His recent works include measuring visual similarity in artifacts, predicting the emergence of new product designs, and detecting weak patents to improve intellectual property rights policies.
Egbert Amoncio primarily contributes to the work in Working Area A: Forms, Formats and Contents, in Working Area C: Archives and Cultural Heritage and in Project 1.1 on Dynamic Optimal Distintiveness in South Korean Films.
My CEDITRAA story
“I am interested in the role of the visual dimension in developing new products, especially in the context of cultural products such as films. When does it make sense for cultural entrepreneurs to be aesthetically similar and when to be different? Thanks to the rise of ICT, available data in terms of quantity and quality has increased rapidly. With the help of artificial intelligence, innovative research could answer questions previously left unanswered.
CEDITRAA provides an avenue to pursue these research interests in a genuinely inter-disciplinary manner. That is, since CEDITRAA is a combination of scholars from various disciplines, the project offers a platform to come together and create meaningful exchanges through learning from each other’s expertise. At the same time, the project’s openness to novel methodologies such as text and image analyses serves as a springboard to discover insights embedded in artifacts. This openness in embracing new methods makes this project diverse in themes and techniques, thereby enabling a more holistic perspective in pushing the research frontier.”
