About this event

Tackling crime with data science


Dick Willems has worked as a Data Scientist at the Dutch Police since 2012. He studied Mathematical Psychology and started his career working as a data scientist in the commercial (marketing) industry to gain experience. Within the Dutch Police, he mainly focuses on predictive policing – he is the creator of the Dutch predictive policing algorithm “CAS” – and the use of unstructured data such as text, image, and video data.


Moonshot Thinking’ is a series of monthly events organized by BIM Group at the Rotterdam School of Management in order to bring industry and research a step closer. Our speakers are thought-leaders in their respective industry sectors and each one has a unique story to tell – whether that is a groundbreaking technology they are working on, an idea they believe in, or an innovation that will reshape the world as we know it. From inspiration and knowledge sharing to prospective research project developments, we aim to inspire business leaders and researchers alike.

Events are hosted at RSM, facilitating informal exchange of ideas and thoughts. Each event is an hour long, with a 45-min speech by a business leader and a 15-min interactive Q&A from the audience. The event is followed by networking drinks, where conversations can continue and collaborations can be born.

In collaboration with Erasmus Data Collaboratory. Learn more:
