Brain Upgrade: Data Insight

The digital era of continuous change, innovation and data overflow, impacts the essence of our decision making process. What is the meaning of search related to decision making? How does explorative data analysis and data visualization effectuate our insight learning curve? Why should knowledge workers take the question as starting point?

Periodically a Luminis Brain Upgrade session is organized to share and explore ideas to learn. Please join us in October for the Brain Upgrade | Data Insight in Amsterdam. Participation is free of charge. Please join us on October 15th for the Brain Upgrade | Data Insight in the Lloyd hotel in Amsterdam. Participation is free of charge.


Jettro Coenradie

Fellow. Jettro has been delivering applications for over 15 years. In these years Jettro has learned the importance of a close connection between development and operations. Therefore he is a strong believer in the devops movement. One type of handover from development to operations is documentation, but the best one is good logs. Jettro knows about backend like Elasticsearch, MongoDB, Spring data and Spring integration as well as front-end like AngularJS, Sass and Less. Last but not least Jettro also has experience with Mobile development (iOS, Ionic framework).

Richard Berendsen

Search & Data engineer. Richard started out as an internet programmer before obtaining his bachelor and master degree in Artificial Intelligence at University of Groningen. Currently, he is finishing a PhD in Information Retrieval at the University of Amsterdam, with Maarten de Rijke, who leads the largest academic information retrieval research group in the world. He is excited to join Luminis Amsterdam this September. His interests include data analysis (e.g., query logs), machine learning (e.g., learning to rank search results), search engine evaluation, and software engineering. Every now and then, he enjoys a good game of chess.
