Kasper Van Lombeek is a passionate statistician. After working very hands-on in the offshore wind industry, he realized he was stuck with his Excel files and went to study statistics. Over the last few years he has been focussing on lots of other aspects regarding data science, such as building interactive applications. He co-founded the company Rockestate, which applies AI on open geo data. The combination of open geo data with internal data of a bank, insurance or energy company brings radical change in the way risk is managed and products are priced.
