In 2000, Dr. Christian Eggenberger conceived of the Human imbedded Grid (HiGrid) as a metaphor with Grid Computing. The concept elaborates on specific challenges and extensions needed for a model of distributed organizations and teams, which integrates systemic human signals onto a smart infrastructure. In order to achieve sustainable modes of distributed work, the concept considers not only individuals’ capabilities and availabilities but also physiological and cognitive vitality statistics. The presentation addresses among others medical research results to illustrate the feasibility of the concept, while also linking the notion of HiGrid to the well-being of individuals, organizations, societies and last but not least social media platforms (e.g. people clouds).
Christian Eggenberger received the M.A. in Business Administration / Economics from the University of St. Gallen in 1988 and the Ph.D. in Information Management from the same University in 1996. As an IBM Certified Executive Consultant, he recently was responsible for the IT Strategy of a financial market authority and several business cases of international data center consolidation mandates. Christian submitted with IBM by 2010 8 patent disclosures related to biometrics, health, well-being and work performance. He was co-author of papers presented at the WIS 2010 conference respectively at the GECCO 2009 conference. He was Program Committee member at the 6th International Meeting On Computational Intelligence Methods For Bioinformatics And Biostatistics in 2009.
