HOW WE SEE THE FUTURE

We believe the future is now. There are just not enough people to solve all the world’s problems, but powerful AI tools and gigantic computational resources now help us on the way. With a core team of more than 30 PhDs, physicists, mathematicians and engineers we have a proven track record of creating new revenue out of existing data.

If you want to join our team and you have a strong interest in mathematics/applied physics or in software engineering generally, contact us. We like spontaneous applications.

OUR TEAM

JONATHAN BERTE

FOUNDER & CEO

Jonathan leads a team of AI computer vision experts. He graduated as an Applied Physics engineers, specializing in image processing.

With this expertise, he has acquired a strong reputation as image processing partner in both the visual, X-ray and Infrared spectrum for applications in the automotive, diamond, textile, FMCG and building industry.

With a steadily growing portfolio of ever bigger and more complex projects, Robovision expanded its horizon towards Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning, implementing an impressive toolbox, called RVAI.

TIM WAEGEMAN

CO-FOUNDER & CTO

Tim is co-founder and chief architect of Robovision. He enthusiastically leads the team  on a technical level and is responsible for RVAI.

He obtained a PhD Degree in Computer Science Engineering at Ghent University. He completed his doctoral thesis in 2013 on machine learning at the Reservoir Lab, building adaptive controllers that can control compliant robots without prior knowledge of their dynamical system. In his spare time, he is a hardware enthusiast and counts many Deepmind scientists among his old labmates.

DIRK VAN DE VELDE

CCO-CFO

Dirk Van de Velde was active in succesfully growing several software companies in Europe (Management Data, Smartstream Technologies, Accurate Software and CheckFree Software). In the Robovision team he’s also responsible for deal negotations.

Dirk is the man building the company by the book. He carefully judges new possibilities, making sound contracts while co-operating with the legal team. He’s also responsible for the HR department, in close cooperation with the founders.

ADVISORY BOARD

EXPERT IN Y

We already have a passionate and highly skilled management team. Now we are also reaching out to critical thinkers, who can join us on this promising journey. Therefore Robovision has  recently started setting up an advisory board. Two positions have been filled so far and we would like to expand this further So, if you are a captain of industry, a proven disruptor or even anex-marine corps, and you feel that your view on our future is relevant, please come and talk to us.

BRAM VANDERBORGHT

Professor at VUB, expert in ROBOTICS

Prof. dr. ir. Bram Vanderborght was born in Belgium in 1980. He got a degree – summa cum laude  in the study of Mechanical Engineering at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel in 2003. He then started working as a researcher at the VUB, on a scholarship from the Fund for Scientific Research Flanders (FWO). In May 2007, he obtained a PhD in Applied Robotics. The focus of his research was on the use of adaptable compliance of pneumatic artificial muscles in the dynamically balanced biped Lucy. Meanwhile,n May-June 2006, he  engaged in research on the humanoid robot HRP-2 at the Joint Japanese/French Robotics Laboratory (JRL) in AIST, Tsukuba (Japan), as part of the project “Dynamically stepping over large obstacles by the humanoid robot HRP-2”. His research interests include cognitive and physical human-robot interaction, robot assisted therapy, humanoids and rehabilitation robotics with core technology of using variable impedance actuators  (you can find an overview here).

BART STEVENS

MARKETING EXPERT

Bart was the founder of iChoosr, an European player in the GroupBuy space. Been doing that with lot’s of fun and a great team.

Prior to that he spent quite some time traveling the globe. Lived in Brazil, US and now Belgium.

He grew up in Holland, graduated at University of Utrecht (law and economics), and father of four “bloedjes”.
