Recent & Upcoming Talks


Discoverable Data Products at KPN
In a six month collaboration with major Dutch telecom provider KPN we will address the challenges of creating and maintaining discoverable, interoperable data products. Our goal is to create a tool-suite for easy metadata management in the KPN data catalogue.
Collaboration on Interoperable Data Product Standards
Over the past six months, I and some colleagues have collaborated on a project at a large German automotive manufacturer. The project’s goal has been to develop a methodology for creating metadata for data products in an internal data exchange market that addresses the challenges of interoperability, reusability, and findability as data products evolve.
Investigation on low-code blockchain platforms with AstraKode
In collaboration with the AstraKode platform, we investigated different (low-code) solutions for deploying and customising permissioned blockchains. This ultimately helped the developers at AstraKode to better position their solution and outshine competitors in an emerging market.
