Machine Learning Services

Machine learning is part of artificial intelligence that provides computers with the ability to learn how to solve problems without prior explicit description of how to perform this task.

In some cases, the only information that a machine learning algorithm needs to be able to solve a task is a set of known examples. In other words, to make a computer identify bicycles, we just need to show it a number of examples of bicycles. This approach with a given labeled data set is known as supervised learning. In contrast, unsupervised machine learning doesn’t need labeled data. This group of algorithms provide the ability to reveal patterns in large datasets and predict future values within the revealed patterns, or to distinguish ordinary data from anomalies. Behind the scenes, machine learning solves the following formal problems: classification, regression, clustering, structured prediction, and reinforcement learning.

Machine learning solutions

Our R&D team is capable of developing various machine-learning solutions based on appropriate methods. There are dozens of algorithms that can learn from data, build models from an example training set or environmental feedback to make data-driven predictions or decisions. All these methods can be grouped around a few general machine-learning problems.

ML Solutions - Classification

Classification

A classifier is a computer program that distributes given data over a set of pre-defined categories. In machine learning, an algorithm uses a training set of correctly classified examples to learn how to do this particular classification. After learning, the computer is able to identify which category a new example belongs to. Classification has many practical applications, such as pattern detection, object recognition, medical image analysis, face recognition, proteins classification, customer behavior analysis, and so on.

ML Solutions - Cluster

Cluster Analysis

A clustering algorithm analyzes a given data set to find the natural structure of the data and divide the set into meaningful groups, e.g. clusters. This type of analysis works similarly to classification, but it does not need prior training or a pre-defined list of classes. Among applications that use cluster analysis are anomaly detection, recommender systems, image segmentation, and behavior prediction.

ML Solutions - Regression

Regression Analysis

Regression is used to analyze how target variables change when one or a set of other variables, predictors, are varied. The ultimate target of regression is to find a function of independent variables, which can be a line, a plane, or a multi-dimensional surface, depending on the complexity of the task. Regression analysis is widely used for different kinds of predictions such as customer-churn prediction, crop-yield prediction, and demand forecasting.

ML Solutions - Prediction

Structured Prediction

Structured prediction includes a set of algorithms that solve complex combinatorial optimization problems, where multiple interrelated decisions must be weighed against each other to find a globally consistent model. There are a number of important real-life problems that use structured prediction methods. For example, 3D scene reconstruction, natural language, or DNA string processing. 

Ml Solutions - Reinforcement Learning

Reinforcement Learning

Reinforcement learning allows a machine or a software agent to find optimal behavior in a given “world.” An automated learning scheme works on the basis of reward feedback from the environment, which allows the agent to tune its own actions to maximize overall performance. Reinforcement learning methods are successfully used in economics simulations, multi-agent system explorations, genetics, robotics, as well as in solving gaming problems.

Unleashing the power of churn prediction algorithms

Churn is undesirable. It indicates the rate of attrition or how many customers (or employees) are leaving an organization. It is estimated that, in the insurance industry in the UK churn in customers for home and auto insurance only results in a loss of £3.3B. Hence, companies focus on reducing churn. It would be easier to reduce churn if one were able to predict it in a timely manner.

Traditional agriculture practices entail common tasks such as soil preparation, planting, water and nutrient management, weeding, harvesting, and sorting. Today with the advent of modern technologies, most processes can be successfully automated. From a technological point of view, computer vision and machine learning play a central role. For example, smart systems can sort yield, visually examining each single fruit as a human would do, but with incredible speed. Intelligent weeding systems recognize weeds by their shape and allow their elimination chemically or mechanically. Farm vehicles equipped with a computer vision navigation system can work in the field autonomously—in other words, with no driver.  In the end, all these systems enable farmers to significantly reduce costs and increase productivity at the same time.
