About Martin Boldt

I’m an associate professor (Docent/PhD) in computer science at Blekinge Institute of Technology in Sweden. As a member of the Department of Computer Science my main research focus is on data analysis using various data science methods, e.g., artificial intelligence and machine learning. I was pro-perfect for the department in 2021 and am currently the unit leader for the Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics lab (AIDA), which is one of the units within the department.

Research-wise, I’m currently working on two research projects funded by Swedish Research Council (2023-2025) and Länsförsäkringars forskningsfond (2021-2024), respectively. Both projects are carried out together with Malmö University and the Swedish Police. The projects focus on applied research within computational criminology, i.e., criminology and computer science (specifically applied machine learning). The projects evolve around data-driven approaches for various analyses of the relationship between crime and CCTV in a Swedish setting.

Previously I worked on a project funded by the Knowledge Foundation during 2014-2020, titled Scalable resource-efficient systems for big data analytics. In that project, I was involved in studies with Ericsson Research regarding methods for anomaly detection and fault prediction in telecom base stations (patent pending). Also, together with Telenor we analyze customer support efficiency by analyzing e-mail conversations using intelligent models. In prior research projects, I have co-operated with the Swedish Police and the Swedish National Forensic Centre by focusing on the mitigation of serial volume crime. More information about the cooperation with the police is available here (in Swedish).

I’m currently the main supervisor for two Ph.D. students. Jim Ahlstrand is an industrial Ph.D. student at Telenor who investigates the use and potential of data-driven machine learning models in customer life cycles in corporate settings. A bit more info here (in Swedish). The second Ph.D. student is Kenneth Lewenhagen, who is doing research on the intersection between computer science and criminology within the previously mentioned projects funded by Swedish Research Council and Länsförsäkringars forskningsfond. I’m also one of the supervisors for Mona Tykesson Klubien who works at the department of criminology at Malmö university. I have also been a supervisor for four PhD students; Anton Borg (finished 2014), Fredrik Erlandsson (finished 2018), Ana Moraes (finished 2020), and Khurram Shahzad (finished 2024).

When it comes to commissions of trust commitments, I’m the general chair for the 35th Swedish Artificial Intelligence Society (SAIS’23) annual workshop in Karlskrona in June 2023. I have been the general chair for IEEE EISIC’18, and a member of the program committee for various conferences. I have had several commitments at the local university, e.g., teacher-representative on the university board, a member of the university’s teacher review committee, and the examiner for Master’s thesis projects in computer science. Currently, I’m mainly the unit leader (including personnel responsibility) of the AIDA team and the program manager for the five-year educational program in AI and machine learning. Finally, I’m peer-reviewing and have reviewed manuscripts for various journals, conferences, and workshops, e.g., ECML, NIPSAISTATS, UAI, LOD.
