Philip Lafeber


I have been specialising in knowledge analysis and modelling. I have an interest in the way models of programs, architectures, business processes and the like are properly made and analysed. What`s meant by `properly` depends on the goal you`re trying to achieve. The analysis of this goal and the way it can best be realised is something you might want to ask me about.

Experience in the area

I have studied knowledge modelling and analysis, worked in building information systems using Oracle at Canon, and consulted about information management setup for various customers at Mavim. I have also built databases in MS Access.


Master in Artificial Intelligence at University of Amsterdam, 2 courses in Oracle Portal, de facto Mavim certified consultant, 2 courses in Government Enterprise Architecture by IIR and Novius, Itil foundation.

Past/Present Clients

What do you like about this subject?

Especially philosophical questions, but also managerial ones; Should one...? Can one...? Is it better to...? Why not...?

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Firstly; knowledge and understaning. Secondly; publications and recognition.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

In AI, the hardest to define is the meaning of intelligence. But it is posisble to define aspects and even create impressive results with simulating those.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

It is easier to build a fully cognisant robot than to understand that which makes it work.
