With more than 15 years of experience in Web technologies, leading R&D projects funded – among others – by Google and Cisco, Alexandre drives the company vision from the business and technology side. He loves hacking on music-related data, and collecting (and spinning) records.
seevl lets you discover music that matters to you. It is not solely a set of algorithm, nor a social platform. It’s a unique combination of both, bringing you multiple flavors of music discovery in a single product, directly available in your favorite services, starting with Deezer and YouTube.
seevl is the product of years of R&D at the intersection of Social and Semantic Web technologies, a.k.a. Web 3.0. We’ve developed a unique and proprietary platform combining data extraction and graph-based knowledge representation together with search, discovery and recommendation features. And we applied it to music, to let you discover music that matters to you.
With extensive experience in project and events management and co-ordination, including media strategy for music festivals, Julie focuses on seevl’s marketing strategy and customer development. She is always ready to cross the country (and more) for a good concert.
Mike has over 12 years experience in music and computing, spanning diverse areas such as sound engineering, audio programming, webcasting and mobile development. He is particularly passionate about mashing-up music and technology, playing guitar and all things web. He gets a kick out of finding and sharing exciting new music.
A graduate from DIT, Peter focuses on Seevl’s social media channels. He is also the tour manager and drummer for Irish band So Cow and has over 10 years’ experience in the music industry, drumming his way across Europe and the United States.
As the project leader of the Music Ontology, Yves is advising seevl on R&D issues. He holds a Ph.D. in Music and the Semantic Web from QMUL and works as a Principal Software Engineer at the BBC since then. He is also a regular participant in Music Hack Days.
As Director of DERI, full Professor at NUIG, and previously researcher at Stanford, also consulting Silicon Valley start-ups, Stefan is advising seevl on R&D and business issues. Back in 2000, he co-founded Ontoprise to commercialise semantics for Data integration.
As a leader in scalable data storage, OpenLink provides us with the back-end architecture to store our music+data graph database.
As the R&D lab and university we spun-out from, DERI and NUI Galway provides us with R&D facilities and business mentoring.
Responsible for the continued growth of Irish enterprises, Enterprise Ireland supports us with investment and mentoring.
