Dr Michael Kopp​

Founding Director

Dr Michael Kopp is a mathematical modelling specialist bringing decades of expertise in risk assessment and advanced data analysis.

He is also data scientist at Here Technologies in Zurich.

He has been instrumental in bringing about the Traffic4cast competition that builds on billions of real-world data-points to improve short-term traffic forecasting and advance our ability to capture the implicit rules underlying a complex system.
