Team

The Dutch UAS Foundation empowers nature reserves in their nature conservation efforts.

Our team achieves this empowerment by developing smart artificial intelligence algorithms to automatically find animals and humans. These algorithms are developed using a lean philosophy. This philosophy is an iterative development process, where small improvements are added to a working product.

The Dutch UAS Foundation was founded by (former) students of the TU Delft, University of Amsterdam, and Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences.

When you learn to code you can assemble anything that that you see missing. And in so doing, you will fix something or change something. And that is how you will play your bit in this world.
