Frédéric Bègue appointed Head of Data & Data Science at Hiboo
Hiboo has appointed Frédéric Bègue as Head of Data & Data Science. His task will be to determine the way in which the technical architecture will have to evolve in order to give more scope for actions to be taken on data.
The aim is to construct a high-quality data resource that future data scientists from Hiboo will be able to use as a basis for creating tomorrow’s algorithms and data products, such as: cycle detection and predictive maintenance.
Frédéric Bègue already knows the Hiboo platform very well, because, in June 2022, on behalf of his company CIDIA – a consultancy on innovation, data and artificial intelligence – he carried out a mission for it. His clear vision of the future of data impressed Hiboo’s directors, whose aim is to develop the services they provide to their main customers. For example, Hiboo intends to base itself on data science and machine learning so as to add even more to the value of its customers’ data.
Before founding CIDIA in 2022, Frédéric Bègue was a Mission Director with the Factory Data & AI department of Itnovem (a technology subsidiary of the SNCF group), which he had joined in 2018 as a data scientist, working on cases ranging from natural language processing to predictive maintenance, and including retrospective statistical studies on performance drivers. Then, as a Mission Director, he was in charge of overhauling different data platforms within the SNCF group as well as setting up “Services Data”.
Frédéric Bègue holds a Masters in Physics from the École Normale Supérieure in Lyon and a doctorate in Theoretical Physics from the Paul Sabatier University in Toulouse.
"Frédéric Bègue will help Hiboo to reach even higher levels in its handling of all matters involving data, enabling it to have an even better understanding of the needs of its main customers, be able to provide them with the right technical solutions, and bring the right people together to deal with each case." - Clément BÉNARD, CEO of Hiboo
