Anthony in a few words

Après avoir été Data Scientist pendant plus de 5 ans dans un cabinet de conseil à Paris (pour des clients en Europe, Afrique et Moyen-Orient principalement), je suis à présent freelance et à la recherche de nouvelles opportunités en Data Science.

Je suis spécialisé dans le data mining, le machine/deep learning et l'exploitation des données géographiques (GIS, par exemple la réalisation de plateformes cartographiques en ligne). Mes secteurs de prédilections sont la connectivité, l'inclusion numérique, la finance digitale et de manière générale les sujets à enjeux sociaux et sociétaux (géopolitiques, écologiques...) mais aussi liés au (géo-)marketing et à la transformation numérique des entreprises.
