I’m Xander, a young engineer fascinated by data science and machine learning. Through my thesis on brain-computer interfaces at Ugent, I first came into contact with the vast opportunities provided by data driven computer algorithms. After my Master of Science
in electrical engineering, I took an extra master’s degree in business economics because I believe the combination of these two backgrounds forms an excellent outset to changing the world with good ideas.
I am strongly convinced that intelligent, data driven algorithms will be the main driver of technological progress in the coming decade. Moreover, I believe that combining these systems with upcoming trends in robotics, natural language processing and augmented/virtual reality forms a fascinating platform for advancing the human endeavour in ways we cannot yet imagine.
