I am a data scientist, a software developer and an entrepreneur living in Québec City, QC, Canada. I also do consulting and freelancing on different projects.
I am the CTO and co-founder of Cognonto and Structured Dynamics. I am a thought leader and innovator helping to mine, leverage, integrate and distribute [big] data using the semantic web, machine learning techniques and open source technologies that I develop.
I am the creator or co-creator of multiple projects, check my portfolio below.
I am a man of ideas with technical knowledge.
My professional interests are various and principally in relation with data: Semantic Web projects development and integration, data mining, ontology development and maintenance, inter-linkage of unrelated data sources, Internet technologies, artificial intelligence, software development, user interfaces and user interactions, electronic commerce, computer security and networks.
I am also highly interested in programming language, their history, their evolution and their inner working. I have a particular affection for literate programming and writing readable code.
It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.- Theodore Roosevelt -
