Frank Vanden Berghen

Frank owns a PhD in Applied-Mathematics in the field of Machine learning and Artificial Intelligence. Since more than 20 years, Frank is creating predictive models, first as a researcher, after as a consultant. As a consultant, Frank used practically all tools available on the market and felt frustrated because of the limitations of these tools. The question was: How is it possible that the best tools available at that time to do advanced analytics where tools developed by hobbyist during their free time in their garage? So, in 2007, Frank decided to create the most advanced tool for predictive analytics on the planet. TIMi was born. Since now more than 10 years, Frank and his team are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible to do with a computer, to boldly go where not dataminer has gone before. Using his tool, Frank is a recurrent top winner at Kaggle and KDD cups.
