Benefits of Our Machine Learning Consulting

Learn how machine learning provides such incredible value.

Transform Your Organization with Machine Learning Consulting

Machine learning helps your organization automate decisions using algorithms that learn from your data.

Unlike data science, which takes a holistic view of improving your business, machine learning focuses on applied techniques to solve automation problems with artificial intelligence.

In fact, if you’re reading this page then you’re probably already aware of the benefits of data science in general.

Our machine learning services are a little different, so please take your time. Have a look at some of the benefits of our machine learning consulting services below.

We're A Machine Learning Company

Looking for an expert machine learning engineer?

We’re about as experienced as you can get. And because we’re independent, we’ve worked with a range of artificial intelligence companies over the years, which multiplies the experience that we can transfer over to you.

And remember that we only specialize in AI applications, so our expertise and ml algorithms are not diluted by other disciplines - we love cloud-native though!

Production-Ready Solutions

Production-Ready Solutions

Burnt by data scientists that are good at math, bad at products?

We agree. In fact, this exact issue years ago was what spurred Phil to start training software engineers who wanted to become a data scientist. He spent several years travelling the world delivering workshops at conferences and teaching privately. Since then many better trainers have come and gone but we still hold engineering ideal close to our heart.

Together with our MLOps services, we provide production-ready, operational AI solutions.

Our Approach to Machine Learning Consulting

Successful consulting arises from decades of experience. Take a look at our tips for a successful machine learning consulting project.

Machine Learning Consulting Process

1. Business Context

Any problem demands context from the business. A solution for one industry may not be applicable to another, nor is every business the same. Establishing shared context helps get the project off to the right start.

2. Stakeholder Inclusion

More than just identification, we find projects are optimal when key stakeholders are including in the project. With “skin in the game”, stakeholders are far more likely to collaborate to produce a better overall solution.

3. Problem Definition

A key phase where business problems are defined and prioritized. It is worth spending time to get this right, as subsequent effort could be ineffective and wasted.

4. Interviews

Data scientists and machine learning engineers are already experts in the work that they do, so interviewing them to learn what they do, how they work, and what the models they have produced do, is an important stage in the process.

5. Model Review

Reviewing ML models is sometimes the main task in an AI consulting project. Here we collaborate with you to evaluate your current models. We look at performance, toil, risk, and many other important factors.

6. Solution Review

Given knowledge of the problem and the processes and models involved we’re now in a position to ask whether the problem is being solved. If not, we will isolate why not, and provide actionable insight into how to fix it.

7. Problem Solution

If necessary, we provide details as to what needs to happen in order to fix the issues you are having with this particular problem.

8. Strategic Solution

It is common that we find larger, strategic-level issues that should be addressed for optimal ML usage. In this phase we present these solutions back to key stakeholders. In many projects we then move into an implementation phase. Other times we step back and perform another iteration to fix another problem.

Optimizing for Value Generation

Businesses have three core operational functions. Processes define how businesses run. Decisions decide when businesses are run. Strategies define why businesses are run.

Software has successfully automated many business processes. Data science automates decisions and strategies via machine learning and reinforcement learning, respectively.

By leveraging our data science consulting services we can help you automate the top two most valuable tiers in the pyramid with an ai solution, to make your organization more efficient and profitable.

Continuous Innovation

The infamous OODA loop, originally developed by the US military, is of particular use during our work because it helps promote innovation.

At every phase we look for opportunities to add value and make your products and services better. Our clients find that our work greatly exceeds their expectations due to the extra value presented by our solutions.

Using Reinforcement Learning to Attack Web Application Firewalls

Introduction Ideally, the best way to improve the security of any system is to detect all vulnerabilities and patch them. Unfortunately this is rarely possible due to the extreme complexity of modern systems. One primary threat are payloads arriving from the public internet, with the attacker using them to discover and exploit vulnerabilities. For this reason, web application firewalls (WAF) are introduced to detect suspicious behaviour. These are often rules based and when they detect nefarious activities they significantly reduce the overall damage.

A summary of this work includes: Developing the Open Model Interface Open-sourcing chassis, the missing link that allows data scientists to build robust ML containers Model monitoring and observability product features MLOps and model management product features The Problem: How to Build An ML Platform Modzy’s goal is to help large organizations orchestrate and manage their machine learning (ML) models.

How To Build a Robust ML Workflow With Pachyderm and Seldon

This article outlines the technical design behind the Pachyderm-Seldon Deploy integration available on GitHub and is intended to highlight the salient features of the demo. For an in depth overview watch the accompanying video on YouTube. Introduction Pachyderm and Seldon run on top of Kubernetes, a scalable orchestration system; here I explain their installation process, then I use an example use case to illustrate how to operate a release, rollback, fix, re-release cycle in a live ML deployment.

The Value of a Machine Learning Pipeline: Past, Present, and the Future of MLOps With Kubeflow

Industrial machine learning consulting projects come in a variety of forms. Sometimes clients ask for exploratory data analysis, to evaluate whether their data can be used to help solve a problem using artificial intelligence. Other times we use machine learning (ML) algorithms to automate decisions and improve efficiencies within a business or product. More recently we’ve refocused on reinforcement learning and customers ask us to help control some complex multi-step process.

Automating Cyber-Security with Reinforcement Learning

The best way to improve the security of any system is to detect all vulnerabilities and patch them. Unfortunately this is rarely possible due to the extreme complexity of modern systems. The common suggestion is to test for security, often leveraging the expertise of security-focussed engineers or automated scripts. But there are two fundamental issues with this approach: 1) security engineers do not scale, and 2) scripts are unlikely to cover all security concerns to begin with, let alone deal with new threats or increased attack surfaces.

CloudNativeX Interview: Reinforcement Learning

Join Lee Razo and Phil Winder for this comprehensive introduction to Reinforcement Learning, an area of machine learning in which problems are tackled with intelligent agents which take actions to maximize a specified reward. Phil (quite literally) wrote the book on this topic and he takes us through the fundamentals of RL, some common use cases as well as tips on how even a small or mid-sized company can get started with and benefit from RL.
