Dr. Maarten Vanhoof is an expert in (big) data analytics. As a renowned researcher, he's been working with the some of the world's top universities (such as University College London, MIT and NYU) and companies (such as Orange, Foursquare) on their big data challenges. As an adviser, he's been assisting decision makers across the globe (such as UN commissioners, official statisticians, and ministries across the globe). As an entrepreneur, Maarten is building data products (like Local League and data visualizations), running workshops that teach companies how to leverage their data, and he is currently founding his own data consultancy agency. But none of this really matters to you, does it? What matters is that as a speaker, Maarten is that one guy that manages to break down the difficult stuff into its basic principles. Add some refreshing insights on the latest technological trends, mix in some real-life stories, add a dash of creativity and you get the engaging, eye-opening talks only Maarten can deliver. At least, that's what he thinks. He probably is wrong. Biased data you know.
