Matthias is CTO at ML6, where he focuses on pushing technical innovation and guaranteeing that their customers benefit from the latest technical advancements.
He is energized by coaching technical talent, internally, but also the wider ML ecosystem. He is co-founder & organizer of multiple meetups and frequently acts as technical advisor for startups and colleges/universities.
Matthias started his career as a Ph.D. researcher at Ghent University focusing on the development of novel event extraction algorithms based on deep learning techniques. Having gained expertise in this new and upcoming technology as well as user testing/evaluation, he was convinced of the immediate opportunities in the industry and prematurely stopped his Ph.D. to focus on kickstarting the adoption in industry by joining ML6. This passion led Matthias to become Google Developer Experts for GCP and one of the first GDEs for Machine Learning.
