dr. Jeroen Franse

Data Scientist

Astrophysicist turned data scientist. Enjoys thinking about all the things that could be wrong with his models. Has strong opinions on how to organise data science work after seeing too many disillusioned academics and corporate data scientists. Believes machine learning and big data will cause more harm than good if not regulated. Sleeps with one eye open. Usually hides his cynicism better than this.
