Computer scientist. Graduated from the Comenius University, Bratislava, Czechoslovakia, in computer science in 1978. In 1983 he received from the Comenius University the degree of RNDr. (Rerum Naturalium Doctor). Between 1979 and 1987, he worked at the Institute of Technical Cybernetics in Bratislava, where he specialized in computer graphics and CAD systems, especially printed circuit board design and software for integrated circuit design, including silicon compilers. From 1987 to 1989, he was with the Institute of Applied Cybernetics, Bratislava, where he worked on the development of the decision support systems and graphic front ends for these systems. Since 1990 he works in ecological modeling at IIASA, Laxenburg, Austria.

In 1973 he began providing Jozef Jankovič with computer support for computer graphics, including digital figural transformations. There were only two computers (and CalComp plotter) in the Slovak Academy of Sciences at the time and upon order from an institution, they were given access for 1-2 hours a week. Bertók was basically algorithmizating Jankovič's rationalizations (process later named as "controlled serendipity"). Final graphic was made by Jankovič based on plotted print.
