Bio Joren Six

Mid 2008 Joren graduated as Master of Science: Computer Science at University College Ghent – Faculty Applied Engineering Sciences. His master’s thesis was on recommender systems. After his studies he started at Vooruit Arts Centre to implement a recommender system and to help with IBBT research projects.

Late 2009, after a short stint at Cultuurnet Vlaanderen, he joined a MIR-related research project at the school of arts, Ghent ‘Development and Application of MIR Techniques on Contemporary Classical and Ethnic Music’.
