Experts in Machine Learning
We are Machine2Learn, or M2L as our name is abbreviated. We are experts in Machine Learning. Our team is based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. M2L’s scientific department is headed by Professor Tom Heskes and Professor Marcel van Gerven, two of the world’s leading machine learning experts. We’re a spin-off from the Radboud University in Nijmegen but our history in successful commercial machine learning applications goes as far back as the 1990s.
We combine the latest academic research, an exceptional understanding of machine learning, and our own software development. In this way, we provide end-to-end machine learning solutions for innovative organizations. We serve clients in industry, the medical sector and services. Together, we accelerate their innovation. In other words, we help them to create a significant competitive advantage using machine learning.
Ours is a story of a group of highly talented people that has grown steadily since late 2017, when our CEO, Ali founded Machine2Learn. After Qualcomm acquired his former employer Scyfer, Ali set out to realize his own vision. In order to implement machine learning solutions successfully, you need a strong, multidisciplinary approach. With this in mind, Ali, together with Tom, his former PhD promotor, gathered the very best data scientists, machine learning engineers and software developers in the business. Nowadays, our reputation and exciting projects help us to attract even more top talent from around the world.
Why we do it
We are all connected by our sheer passion for machine learning, our determination to solve complex problems and our absolute dedication to customers. These are the very values of M2L and those of our individual team members. With instant success from the very beginning, Ali and our truly multi-cultural team of machine learning experts (meet them below) never looked back. From the very start, the company grew continuously. By the way, if you want to be part of our incredible team, then why not apply?!
