Hi, my name is Robin Smits.

I’ve started with programming as a hobby in 1983 on the Commodore 64…then fast forward a lot of years I’ve started my working career as a system administrator. I worked and studied myself into a nice IT infrastructure career focused on Novell, Windows and Linux environments.

In 2011 I’ve switched my working career from IT infrastructure to software development and I’ve been doing that ever since. I’ve developed numerous front-end and back-end systems with .Net and also enjoy programming in Python.

For the last few years I started focusing increasingly on everything related to AI and ML. Almost all time I can spend on studying, courses, reading articles etc. is focused on these subjects. With an ever increasing knowledge of frameworks and services such as CNTK, Keras, Tensorflow, Azure ML and Cognitive Services I started this blog to share some of that knowledge with you.

I hope you will enjoy reading my blog posts. You can find all my code on
