About the Host

Daniel Jacobsen

I'm is on a mission to help maritime leaders harness disruptions - especially those relating to AI and machine learning.
I believe in building things of lasting value and am looking for long term relationships with high-integrity men and women who share this world view. I believe in creating and growing together.
I did my PhD in applied mathematics at the Technical University of Denmark where I applied machine learning to brain imaging. One of my favorite aspects of machine learning is how you can apply it to almost anything – from brains, to ships, and anything in between.
I co-founded a maritime startup, GreenSteam, where I am now Chief Science Officer. I developed AI algorithms and decision support solutions to make merchant shipping more efficient and have been managing everything from sales and marketing to funding, finance and operations. Over the years my focus has shifted towards the strategic challenges of succeeding with AI in the maritime world.
