Michael obtained a M.Sc. in Computer Sciences and Artificial Intelligence in 2021 at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
During his studies, Michael got interested in the ideas of artificial agents performing creative tasks such as writing and painting. During his Master’s thesis he researched the impact that character models have on the quality of automatically generated stories. This led to the creation of the Beliefs, Characteristics, Desires and Intentions character model and the Bradbury model that can be used by computational agents to automatically generate stories.
Michael joined B12 Consulting in July 2021 as an Analyst Developer. In his free time, he likes to work out and to nerd-out with his friends while playing Dungeons and Dragons or MTG.
