A Company with Purpose

We offer machine learning and artificial intelligence services to the general insurance and financial markets.

We help businesses like yours, capture data and turn it into a valuable business asset. From early stage machine learning education to code-face programming, the team at MLP can assist you wherever you may need it.

With offices located in Amsterdam, our 10-strong team, all of whom hold Doctorates, Masters or Degrees in Data Science, is led by David Langerveld and overseen by our Chief Data Science Officer, Breanndán Ó Nualláin. The team works on the algorithms that power our products. All our products are built to purpose and perform better than ‘off the shelf’ solutions. In an industry where 1% is a lot of capital, that is crucial.

Founded in 2018, we are now part of the Open GI Group. Whilst remaining independent and offering solutions to all platforms, MLP benefits from vast stores of anonymised historical data.

Our offices are located within the Startup Village (pictured above) in the Amsterdam Science Park. The village is made from refurbished shipping containers, reconstructed and welded together with garden laid on the roofs for insulation and seating during the summer.

Meet our Founders

Tom Murphy

Meet our Data Scientists

David Langerveld
David LangerveldHead Data Scientist
David holds an MSc in Data Science. Before working at MLP, David has worked on predicting the spreading of influenza and predictive maintenance for aircraft components. In his spare time he teaches machine learning to undergraduate students, but can most likely be found in a swimming pool or exploring the Alps.
Tim Loderhose
Tim LoderhoseData Scientist
Tim previously worked on predictive maintenance in the process industry, and spends his free time creating guitar effects with neural networks. He holds a BSc and MSc in Data Science from the universities of Maastricht and Edinburgh.
Luke Rothwell
Luke RothwellData Scientist
Luke has been a member of the data science team at MLP since July 2019. He studied for a B.A. in Mathematics at Trinity College Dublin, graduating with a first-class honours degree. Luke has experience of working in the pharmaceutical and financial sectors, having completed internships in pharmaceutical statistics at Statsols and corporate finance at Deloitte.
Laura Tendero
Laura TenderoData Scientist
Laura has been a Data Scientist at MLP since April 2020. She holds a BS in Mathematics and an MS in Data Analysis from the University of Valencia. Laura has previously worked in different sectors such as health insurance, banks, cosmetics and beverages companies, where she has applied her knowledge in machine learning to successfully improve the business interests.
Christopher Madsen
Christopher MadsenData Scientist
Chris holds a BSc in Artificial Intelligence and has previously worked as a Data Scientist within ecommerce. As a Junior Data Scientist, Chris is very keen on learning as much as possible and applying his cutting-edge skillset. His unique talent is turning coffee into machine learning models.
Pranav Mohanty
Pranav MohantyData Scientist
Pranav holds an MSc in Astronomy Research from Leiden University and previously worked as a data scientist in the agro-tech field, during which he applied a mix of spectroscopy, image analysis, and machine learning to his work. He is also an avid tennis enthusiast, remains a passionate advocate of science, and loves to travel.

Our Internship Programme

We have an ongoing cooperation with Amsterdam University College (https://www.auc.nl). Each June, students from AUC’s Information Track with an emphasis on machine learning have the opportunity to follow a month-long Internship Programme with us.

The programme begins with a one-day workshop where the students get an overview of the insurance industry and how modern methods of Data Science can be applied. The students are then divided into teams, each of which is given an applied, real-world project. Each team has access to one of our Data Scientists and a junior for guidance and feedback throughout the month. We close the month with a final results and presentations day, concluding with beers and pizzas (COVID regulations permitting) outdoors at the Startup Village (weather permitting).

Even pre-COVID, we developed a set of methods for working and communication which are flexible enough so that we can work together in the office, completely remotely or anywhere along the spectrum between the two. As a result, we are fully prepared to run the June 2021 Internship Programme remotely. We hope however that, with COVID regulations being relaxed gradually, we can run it in person at the Startup Village, taking whatever precautions are required.
