Amélie Rolland, M.Sc.

Software Architect

Software developer by profession, I also hold a Master of Science degree in Computer Science with a focus on machine learning and data analysis. My artificial intelligence expertise led me to develop predictive models for diverse companies respectively operating in the health, forestry, financial, and security sectors. My role within WikiNet consists in defining the interactions between Watson Services and our solutions, creating analytic and predictive models for the environmental sector, as well as developing the application and guiding the development team.


Mathieu Gagné

Data Engineer

As geological engineer with a master's degree in hydrogeology and geostatistics, I have 20 years of experience in the fields of environmental consulting and hydrogeology. I have carried out a large number of projects such as Phase I, II and III environmental assessments, site remediation and hydrogeological studies. In the framework of these various projects, I was particularly interested in the development of tools in the field of databases and geomatics. My role as a data engineer consists in selecting and validating the sources of information that feeds the applications in order to ensure the quality of the knowledge base that will be used to obtain predictions generated by the cognitive technology of IBM / Watson.
