Mart van de Ven is a Principal at Droste, a Hong Kong-based data science consultancy. He heads a team which creates and executes strategies for companies which are data rich, but insight poor. Droste leverages advanced analytics and machine learning to realign their client’s data aspirations with business goals. He’s proudest of the predictive maintenance system they built for a utility company, the credit-scoring algorithm they devised based on social media data, and a computer vision solution they developed which now drives a visual search company.
Outside of Droste, Mart is also committed to furthering data adoption and data literacy across the city. He’s conducted 100+ workshops and provided mentorship on 200+ data science projects. Mart is known for his contributions to the public debate on data-related issues. He is a frequent guest speaker on data science (e.g. UBS, CLP, HKTDC), the co-founder of Open Data Hong Kong, a civic tech advocacy group, and leads Symbol & Key, the city’s most visible platform for data scientists. His personal interests include speculative fiction, linguistics, and abstract strategy games.
