Lunch lecture Realised

After starting our Computer Science studies in 2013 and 2014 respectively, we (Olaf Haalstra and Diederik Bakker ) have done a lot outside of studying. We strongly believe that while your studies provide you with hard skills, it is important to improve on your soft skills during your student life. We both organised a study tour and had a side job at a software development company. However, we ultimately found our drive in entrepeneurship.

Last year, we've started our own company called Realised. By combining the knowledge of building software with domain knowledge about energy and sustainability, we are able to serve customers in their technical needs through the energy transition. Our vision is that insight leads to energy savings and we are trying to apply this to every one of our customers.

We will present a case of one of our customers which your are all familiar with: the University of Twente. They have a huge pile of energy data and want to use the insights it provides to lead decision making in taking sustainable measures. One of the measures we took is making all data available to the public and crowdsourcing the insights that are needed. This concept is called open data and it has gained lots of popularity in the past few years, with many organisations opening up their datasets. During the lecture, we will use the energy dataset to give an example of how you can easily gain insight and make an impact on the real world.
