Ralf Herbirch

In general, I want my work to have a positive impact to many people's lives. I particularly enjoy the application of principled research to large-scale real-world problems. I enjoy learning new things every day and getting to work with (new) people.

I do not accept existing scientific boundaries and think that the largest breakthroughs will be made at the intersection of existing disciplines. My research interests include Bayesian inference and decision making, game theory, information retrieval, learning theory and knowledge representation and reasoning. I have published over 50 peer reviewed conference and journal papers in these fields.

I am one of the inventors of the Drivatars™ system in the Forza Motorsport series as well as the TrueSkill™ ranking and matchmaking system in Xbox 360 Live (especially in Halo and Halo Reach). I also co-invented the click-prediction technology used in bing's online advertising system (adPredictor). I am co-inventor for several patents relating to these inventions.
