AI Consulting

Choosing which ML project to tackle next can be difficult. We take the stress out of your ML strategy by:

  • Looking at your ML strategy from a holistic, ROI-based perspective
  • Probing your organization to find toil, inefficiency, and opportunities
  • Delivering concrete, actionable recommendations to improve your opportunities through the use of machine learning
Model Development

Model Development

We’ve been implementing machine learning models since 2013. We’ve likely worked on a similar problem in your domain in the past. We leverage our expertise to provide you with straightforward advice and implementations. We can:

  • Work with a variety of ML technologies
  • Develop within the confines of your stack
  • Collaborate with you and your team to achieve successful outcomes
Data Science Consulting

Data Science Consulting

Nearly all of our projects involve a data science consultant because it’s vital that the consultant understands the domain, in order to deliver pragmatic models. During this process we:

  • Perform exploratory data analysis (EDA)
  • Provide you with our feedback, based upon what we have seen in the past
  • Recommend the next best action that will lead to the greatest uplift
Model Evaluation

Model Evaluation

Developing decent models whilst not easy, is straightforward if you know what’s important. Allow us to review your model portfolio and we can:

  • Explain why models are failing or are not performing adequately
  • Suggest improvements to help robustness, performance, provenance, and more…
  • Evaluate risk within your model portfolio and identify ways of reducing it
ML Process Improvement

ML Process Improvement

Do you struggle to gain consistency in your machine learning projects? Like we did for Neste, we can help you:

  • Establish the maturity of your machine learning process by evaluating your current ways of working
  • Provide actionable suggestions to improve your organization’s AI maturity
  • Actively promote and help you disseminate better ways of working.

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, however, so please take your time. We’ve found that most projects are not straightforward and are non-linear. Practical, useful, valuable data science has emerged thanks to advances in distributed and cloud-native technology, but this does lead to a lofty technical stack. Depending on your AI maturity you may not have the underlying dependencies in place. Thankfully, our DevOps consulting experience allows us to backfill dependent technologies as and when they are required.

We're A Machine Learning Company

We're A Machine Learning Company

Looking for an expert machine learning engineer?

Since 2013, before machine learning existed, we were developing algorithms to decide, track, detect, search, recommend and more. We’re about as experienced as you can get. Over the years we’ve worked with a range of artificial intelligence companies, which multiplies the experience that we can transfer over to you.

And remember that we only specialize in AI applications, so our focus and expertise 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. This exact issue years ago was what spurred Phil to start training software engineers who wanted to become data science consultants. He spent several years travelling the world delivering workshops at conferences and teaching privately. Conservatively, he’s taught data science to thousands of engineers. Winder.AI doesn’t specialise in training anymore, but we still hold the ideal of fundamental engineering excellence close to our hearts.

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

Flexibility

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 apply to another, nor is every business the same. Establishing a 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 included 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 efforts 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 to fix the issues you are having with this particular problem.

8. Strategic Solution

Commonly, 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. We will likely follow up with data science consulting to help investigate problems further or move into a machine learning development phase for implementation.

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.

An Introduction to Reinforcement Learning: All You Need to Know

When a child wants to ride a bike, they learn by doing. This process of trial and error is also known as learning through reinforcement, because positive and negative experiences promote or discourage certain behaviours, respectively. Children learn to ride by avoiding actions that cause them to crash; for the thrill of feeling wind in their hair.
