  • Jan Lubbers

    I was born on February 10, 1975, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. In 1984, I became captivated by the art of computer programming. After graduating from Latin Grammar School (in 1993, β-curriculum), I went on to study Artificial Intelligence at the University of Amsterdam. I obtained my Master's degree with a specialization in autonomous systems. In 1997, I founded the company Smart Bits to put my knowledge and experience to work. Additionally, I have been employed by the following organizations. From 1998 to 2006, I held various positions at Ordina/Utopics, a top 5 Dutch IT development and consultancy firm. From 2006 to 2010, I served as Research Scientist and Project Manager at TNO, the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research. From 2012 to 2014, I served as Research Manager at Royal NLR, the Netherlands Aerospace Centre. For an up-to-date overview of my professional experience, please refer to my LinkedIn page.
