Dominik Boesl, a Professor in Digital Sciences, Automation, and Leadership at the Hochschule der Bayerischen Wirtschaft in Germany, worked for FESTO AG & Co KG from January 2019 to December 2020. His time there as Vice President and Head of Robotic Features saw him lead the company’s robotics business unit and define its automation strategy.

Before FESTO, Dominic Boesl had been responsible for Innovation and Technology Management at KUKA. Upon joining, he took on the role of Head of Corporate Strategy. He also became a board member. In 2012, however, he became the Corporate Innovation Manager and took on the role of acting Vice President Consumer Driven Robotics and Senior Corporate Innovation Manager from January 2017 to December 2018.

His tenure at KUKA saw Dominik Boesl profoundly contribute to the group’s strategy on Apps, Cloud, and IoT.

Starting his career at Siemens in 1999, Dominik Boesl helped establish the company’s mobile ecosystem as we know it today. This he did by bringing the first UMTS broadcasting cell to market. He went on to join Microsoft in Germany in 2005.

While at Microsoft, Dominik Boesl held various leadership positions. Instead of moving to Seattle, USA, to pursue a leadership position in programme management at Microsoft, he opted to join the KUKA group.

Dominik Boesl is, these days, also engaged in the IEEE-SA Global Initiative for Ethical Considerations in the Design for Autonomous Systems, the IEEE RAS FDC Incubation Project on Autonomous Systems and their Societal Impact, and the euRobotics Topic Group on Ethical, Social and Legal Implications (ESL) of Robotics, influencing the input to the European roadmaps. He also organises workshops on Technology and Robotics Governance and chairs the Annual IEEE IROS Futurist Forum.

Other positions currently held by Dominik Boesl include, amongst many others, Chair of the GLOBAL IEEE TechEthics ad-hoc Committee, VP for Industrial Activities of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, and a judge of innovation and start-up challenges at various events and forums.

With regards to his educational background, Dominik Boesl graduated with a diploma in Computer Science from the University of Augsburg, Germany, and an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh in the USA. Besides his career in the private sector, he has also lectured at various universities. He is also the author of numerous technical and scientific publications. He is currently researching Technology, Robotics, and AI Governance at Munich Technical University. The plan, according to him, is to foster the interdisciplinary discourse about the impact of robotics and automation on society and humankind.
