Predictive Analytics & Machine Learning


Impactful Algorithms for Operations, Strategy & Innovation

A Destination

Predictive Analytics & Machine Learning is changing the world. At its best, it is “intelligence that just works”: a collection of advanced algorithms, backed by hard-nosed mathematics, that can identify structure and relationships in data. It can do big things like design effective medicine or fight crime.

But it can also do everyday things like help businesses tweak operations that when multiplied by millions of transactions mean big dollars, better resource allocation or just plain better decisions.

Companies around the world are investing heavily in Predictive Analytics & Machine Learning capabilities.  You should too.

Below are just a few examples of Predictive Analytics at work that we have been privileged to participate in.

Patient Compliance

Predicting and supporting patients for compliance with medical directions means lower cost and better healthcare - for all. 

Employee Retention

Knowing who is likely leave your organization means you can prepare or perhaps prevent instead of being caught off-guard. 

Technology Development

Knowing the short through long term winners and losers in technology development means your investments in innovation will succeed.

All Together Now


In a digital world what you can predict from data is increasingly limitless.

All Together Now


In a digital world what you can predict from data is increasingly limitless.

3 B's.  That's all it takes to know a customer or a competitor.  That would be the Biometric, Biographical and the Behavioral - data that describes who you are, what you have done and how you act. 

When you find and meld these three types of data you can predict when a customer will reorder your product, whether your customer will use your product, or if your customer will recommend your product. 

Companies have persona also.  3B data about them can tell you if they will enter a market, open a factory or change prices.  A forward look at your competitors means you lock in customers, avoid copy-cat mistakes, or secure the best suppliers. 

Knowing your customers and competitors next actions drops right to the bottom line.  Act on it.

Tools To slice data

R, Python, Hadoop.  These are the tools of today's Data Scientists.  We use these and many more to slice and dice data. 

We cut through data, shape it, relate it, model it and then predict it.  We move fast and get the order out the door.

The oven

tools to cook data

Crawlers, feeds, Natural Language Processing (NLP), streaming.  This is how you make Predictive Analytics and Machine Learning actionable. 

We make it real, constant and flowing into the rest of your system for high-level impact - day after day, or millisecond by millisecond.

tools to consume data

It's one thing to have predictions in the background, it another to see them at work and use them real-time. 

We always package and present Predictive Analytics and Machine Learning into useable apps so you can ask questions, mull it over and decide.

Demo


Demo


Here is a demo application for searching and analyzing news.  It's a simple idea.  What is written about a company, the good and the bad, impacts it's stock.   First you'll see IBM come up as a default.  After that add your own search and company stock symbol.  Don't just search on a company.  Search on a topic and see how concepts in the news might seem to lift or depress a stock.  And use the stock symbol search link to find a stock symbol for a sector rather than an individual stock.  Mix and match as you please.  Also try adjusting the stock data range to match the dates of the news - then the two charts and their relationship should become clearer. 

With this demo you get a sense of the power of data analytics' to understand how one thing affects another and how to take advantage of the new understanding.  To get started just click on the image below to get there or click here
