Present Occupation (Mpeg-film), aka "Will he live a normal life? No, he will be an engineer...":

From 1996 to 1999 I worked with remote sensing and image processing at former Satellitbild (now a branch of the Swedish National Land Survey) in the winter town of Kiruna. In 1999 I moved to Stockholm and spent two years at Carlstedt Research & Technology as a consultant. In 2001 I started to work with face tracking at SmartEye, a spin-off company from CR&T. Working with real-time tracking and pattern recognition has been a challenge and great fun, but all good things come to an end and I spent 2005-2014 working with tracking, sensor modelling and various R&D projectss for manned and unmanned aerial aircraft for Saab Aeronautics. Here is a detailed CV. From 2014 to 2016 I did some consulting for the Alten group, and as of June 1 2016 I have moved to Germany (Langen, outside Frankfurt) and started working for Panasonic working with computer vision and data fusion.

I enjoy Telemark (or free heel) skiing, "långfärsskridskor"long distance skating (5 Mb movie) on lakes. I can recommend a great little book called "Östergötlands bästa skridskovatten", written by a colleague and published by Calazo (I especially recommend page 82). A also enjoy visiting friends abroad, the art of M.C. Escher and the french painter/architect Georges Point, who paints in a style that might be labeled "architectural impressionism". Some examples of his lithographs are shown here, taken from a suite called "Portkosme" featuring motifs with buildings, harbours, and the sea, all done in wonderful pastellike colours. Nowadays you can also find posters from e.g. this place.
I'm an ardent reader of Fantastic Literature (Sci-Fi is a misnomer I think), the list of writers and books I enjoy is far too long to be given here. An example of a great book in this genre is Neal Stephenson's "Anathem", a book full of references to philosophy, science, religion and atheism (my camp). I find contemporary Swedish literature bloodless and introvert, with notable exceptions like Björn Larsson and Carl-Johan Vallgen, who actually have interesting stories to tell. Pick up "John Long Silver" and "Dokument rörande Spelaren Rubashov" and you know what I mean.
I am a fan of the films by Robert Guédiguian whose films have a social pathos rarely seen on the screen today. Often filmed around and in Marseille the topics range from warm comedies (Marie-Jo Et Ses Deux Amours) to disillusioned people who struggle to make a change in society (Mon Père Est Ingénieur). The same goes for Agnès Jaoui, French actress and director whose films also stand out. For those of you who want to avoid the news noise in today's media, I can recommend the swedish periodical Axess, partly available in the internet and in English. I recently discovered Seed magazine and the related Phylotaxis site; highly recommended! I recently discovered the English music group Stereolab, if you like Velvet Underground, pop from the 60:ies and Acid Jazz you'll love this group. I'm also a big fan of Nick Cave, whose music is welcome contrast to the industrially produced music you hear in TV and radio nowadays (which is why I stick to radiostations and films on the internet).
