Xander Steenbrugge

Xander is a young engineer fascinated by data science and machine learning. Through his thesis on brain-computer interfaces at Ugent, he first came into contact with the vast opportunities provided by data driven computer algorithms. After his Master of Science in electrical engineering, he took an extra master’s degree in business economics because he believe’s the combination of these two backgrounds forms an excellent outset for changing the world with bright ideas.

Xander is strongly convinced that intelligent, data driven algorithms will be a major source of technological progress in the coming decade. Moreover, he believes that combining these systems with upcoming trends such as virtual reality and better natural language processing forms a fascinating platform for advancing the human experience in ways that we cannot yet imagine.

Currently, he works as a machine learning engineer at ML6, where they enable companies to create state-of-the-art ML solutions to transform their businesses into technology flagships for the 21st century.

Xander regularly speaks at the nexxworks innovation bootcamps.
