About this website
People say that the main purpose of writing is to make sense of whatever is dwelling in our head. Instead of writing and rather with data science, I as well want to make sense of our world and understand why we live the way we do. This website contains some of my projects and serve as a personal tool to keep track of what motivates me over time. Of course, it's also a great way to share my ideas and creations with the outside world. Down the road, that's what Internet is about isn't it? I strongly believe in the power of shared knowledge so that everyone can make better decisions, improve themselves and to, ultimately, better the world we live in.
Although my background is in planning and I am fascinated how cities work, my projects will not solely revolve around that. I am also passionate with many other topics and I generally enjoy learning new things. I think that's what make life so exciting and worth living. Right now, I am diving into machine learning. It sounds scary, but it's really not and everyone can pick it up even if you don't have a degree in computer science (like me). As our world becomes more sophisticated and as we exponentially gather more data, machine learning will play an even bigger role in the future. So let's use data to make a better world for everyone!
