Laurens Hogeweg is a deep learning engineer at Naturalis Biodiversity Center and COSMONiO Imaging BV. He has a background in machine learning of medical images, obtaining a PhD in that area at Radboud University Nijmegen, but since then has switched to broaden the application of machine learning to biological images. Currently he works as a deep learning engineer at Naturalis Biodiversity Center to develop a deep learning platform for biodiversity applications. The platform focuses on both natural history collections and species observations in the wild. The platform will be made accessible to researchers as well as the general public.
