Michiel Vandendriessche (Craftworkz)

Michiel Vandendriessche is a computer scientist with a specialisation in data analytics and artificial intelligence. He started in Craftworkz with his work in AI-driven fall detection. Instead of coding rules for detecting a fall from someone's wrist watch, he developed a system that could learn these sophisticated rules itself by analysing examples of falls and non-falls.

Furthermore, he gained a lot of expertise in developing chatbots. He uses well-known technologies like IBM Watson Conversation and Microsoft Bot Framework and started the development of Craftworkz' own framework called "Oswald".

Deevid De Meyer (Craftworkz)

Deevid De Meyer is one of the mad engineers at Craftworkz. Deevid has been highly involved in building robotic applications.
