I love A.I.
I love to help people.
I love to create A.I.
I love data science and machine learning.
I love to create robot brains.
I love to talk about helping people with the best A.I., about building useful data science applications and robot brains and about the implications for society at large.
When I was ten, I dreamed that my neuropsychology books for adults I was reading were floating into my computer, an Atari 600XL with 4kb of RAM. Now I am forty and I am creating advance A.I. systems and robotic brains. I think that the Netherlands is one of the few, if not the only, country where a person can get a bachelor, master and PhD. in A.I., and that’s just what I did. I’ve worked on many different projects where we had to invent completely new systems all the way from extracting the data, creating features, perform machine learning up to making it a business applucation. I worked with a dozen different robots in several countries, with a supercomputer with 12000+ cores and very large databases. I can recommend that to anybody!
I’m also very interested in really old civilizations and I’m learning Babylonian/Akkadian at the moment. I study programming languages and I think that Haskell rules them all, though Scala and Python are maybe more practical at the moment… Nothing can beat mathematical interpretations of post-structuralist philosophy and atonal music just rules! I’m also a husband and dad of young twin boys. That’s the best job I’ve ever had 🙂
Here is a little documentary explaining some of my work. A movie is worth a million words…
And in Dutch why I think we should have a better informed
