  1. Funny that a Belgian data science website does not even mention the #1 Belgian data scientist, who happens to also be a top 3 in the world, if not #1. I guess you don’t want free publicity from that guy, thought it would boost your traffic volume by at least 30. Oh well, I guess nul n’est prophete en son pays.
