Machines Learning the Lay of the Land and Signaling Mutations

The Netherlands is defined by water and our ability to manage it. In order to manage it we have to monitor it, and monitoring it requires large sets of input data and their analyses. Using machines to automate these data processes brings 21st century tools to the long tradition of Dutch water management. Young Mavericks specializes in the design, data mining and analysis, and machine learning aspects of digital technology and then trains data scientists to apply the technology with an open mind to diverse contexts. Our model allows different companies and organizations to gain freshly trained talent ready to meet the demands of specific data and information analysis.

Meet Robert: Bringing Design Thinking to Data Science Projects

I come from an entrepreneurial family so pursuing a business background with a focus on change management was a natural way for my professional and personal worlds to converge. A few years ago, I started exploring various books and examples of Design Thinking. This was also when the Lean Startup and the first contemporary corporate innovators were coming to the foreground. This background, a mix of events and interests, inspired me to start with my business partner our own company in Design Thinking training and supervising Design Sprints. Design Thinking is a great example of a no-nonsense attitude. During the workshops and training I can do what I like best: combining my academic background and professional expertise with helping people while gaining experience in new knowledge and tools.

One of these partnerships was with War Child’s Can’t Wait to Learn Team as they work to improve the education gap in conflict affected areas.
