Beyond understandable systems, Jorn has a strong interest in protecting the marine environment, which is currently threatened in most parts of the world by intensive fishing, pollution, and climate change. Jorn's home is in New Zealand, close to the ocean. He currently lives in Melbourne, and as far as possible tries to get out on the water at least twice a week.
Jorn works as the IBRS executive advisor for strategic risk management, operational excellence, and implementation of mergers & acquisitions.
Jorn stumbled into the world of software and semantics by studying mathematics. He has experience in visual symbolic modelling and linguistics, knowledge reconstruction, intelligent human machine interfaces, and semantics.
