Ricardo Ludeke is a mechanical engineer who decided to break the mould and apply machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques to his research in computer aided engineering. He obtained his BEng Honours degree Cum Laude from the University of Pretoria in 2016 and will be completing his Master degree part time in 2017.
Ricardo’s hunger for success drove him to achieve many things, such as becoming the founder of a successful ecommerce startup, to present his award winning research at an international conference and to obtain a research grant to do testing at an international research center in Italy.
Ricardo realised the potential of open source machine learning frameworks through his research and consulting at PwC. He has set out to become a master in the field and has joined DataProphet as a Data Scientist in 2017.
