Martin Malčík

Supervisory board

I was born in the Ostrava region, and studied and spent all my life in Ostrava. Research and development is my lifelong professional interest, especially in the fields where information technologies, and recently also AI, focus on humans and the planet. I received my PhD. in applied mathematics and took a higher doctorate in applied informatics.

Currently I am a college teacher and researcher, having spent more than 15 years studying the diagnostics of physiological human characteristics. Within my research I focus on the links between human stress in modern society, increasing stress factors and possibilities of growth and self-development. I look for alternatives to improve environmental conditions with respect to sustainable development.

I am not purely an academic, but wish to implement my research in practice. I founded and cultivate several research projects in the field of applied research which are in the phase of prototypes and have the chance to move to the start-up phase, possibly even to successful production. All my projects have their customers, which is proof that we will succeed and that through Soulmates Ventures we will launch the products on the market.

In terms of management and professional expertise, I prefer working in a team. I strive to ensure that the teams I manage achieve flow and optimal, efficient performance. Such performance does not exhaust them and leads smoothly to achieving the goals that we have set at Soulmate Ventures, of which there are several.

Although I am a patriot, I do not restrict myself to the region. On the contrary, for three years I worked in the Department of Informatics of the Faculty of Education at the Pedagogical University in Krakow. I collaborate with prestigious international research and development teams, for instance in the Florida Institute for Human & Machine Cognition, Pensacola, Baylor University; School of Engineering and Computer Science, Waco, USA; Curriculum Evaluation and Management Centre, University of Durham; Teesside University, Middlesbrough, UK; Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture, University of Split, Croatia, and others.
