Welcome to the personal homepage of the scientific programmer Omar J. Aviles Holzknecht.
He prefers to refer to himself in the first person.
I made this website to show how my academic and personal lives look like, to provide links to my social networks and to learn/train new web technologies.
Have fun looking around!
Since I can think I'm crazy about computers, technology and science fiction. Obviously this is the reason why I am a computer scientist now.
I work for the Semantic Technology Institute Innsbruck and my current research field is the Semantic Web and its related applications.
During my study, research and work I come across very exciting computer science related topics. The ones I am most interested in are stated in the following (ordered by grade of interest and knowledge).
In the following my hobbies and interests are listened. You can click/tap on any card to reveal a detailed description with links about that specific topic.
Reggaeton is my favourite musical genre! I listen to this kind of music since i was a child in Nicaragua. Back then the image of Reggaeton was infamous because of the explicit lyrics about drugs, violence, poverty and sex. However, all intentions to erase this music failed and the genre evolved and grew stronger. Nowadays Reggaeton is one of the most listened musical genres worldwide, have a look at the most viewed youtube video. My favourite artists are Don Omar, Daddy Yankee and Wisin & Yandel.
If you don't know what to do, then laugh, it is one of the best things in life. I love stand-up comedy and i am a big fan of comedians, especially the english-speaking ones.
For me, Dave Chappelle is the funniest person on the planet. Stand-up Comedians you should know are Eddie Murphy, Eddie Griffin, Russell Petters, Kevin Hart, Gabriel Iglesias, Louis CK and Franco Escamilla.
I hope you could learn something interesting about me!
