Ilona Last, Co-Founder – OKEEJ

Ilona - OKEEJ
Room 4

After obtaining her Master of Science at the University of Twente, Ilona worked in the pharmaceutical industry for close to a decade. She was always working, eating irregularly and not exercising. She later became aware of the importance of a healthier lifestyle for optimal living, both professionally and in her personal life. She started working out more and began training for the New York Marathon. In doing so, she needed help, with affordable personal coaching hard to find. After finishing the New York Marathon, she and her brother Rob started development on OKEEJ, for all people pursuing a permanently healthy lifestyle!

About the talk

Wanting to live healthier as always been paramount – but far from easy without help in today's fast-paced, digital world. Technology innovator OKEEJ has an interesting take on this. OKEEJ combined the use of an intelligent digital platform, machine learning and smart sensors to render personal coaching scalable. This soon will make personal training affordable for everyone.

Together, OKEEJ and iO developed a unique concept, scaled with the Cloud and learned valuable lessons during the process. How do you collect data? How do you 'train' an algorithm operationally efficiently at large scale?

During their talk, Ilona and Friso Geerlings (iO) take you through what the platform has to offer and share insights from development. We’ll discuss the 'limited budget', the absolute need for agile development and how we brought business and development teams together to develop an advanced platform with Machine Learning ourselves. But - perhaps our most important learning – they’ll also share with you the revolution that awaits us in the Fluid Future. After self-service, we Machine Learning service is the next big thing and that means dealing with platform development in a new way.
