Bendix Schneider, born in Gera (Germany) in 1987, studied in Germany, France, and Belgium, where he earned his Master of Physics (specialization in nonlinear physics and complex systems) with the highest honor at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) in 2011.
In his master thesis he studied an all-optical approach to Reservoir Computing, a brain-inspired computation formalism.
He then started a PhD in the Photonics Research Group at the University of Ghent. His research topic was oriented towards the application of machine learning techniques, such as Reservoir Computing and neural networks, in integrated photonics devices and for its use in integrated, on-chip flow cytometers. Through this work, he gained a lot of experience in the field of applied machine learning, statistical learning and interference, integrated photonics, and cell sorting/imaging.
Bendix is native German speaker, fluent in English and French, and has a good working knowledge of Dutch.
He joined Denk iP bvba in May 2017 as patent trainee.
