Turn (big) data into practical insights, valuable models, and automated systems.
Analytics with an edge?
The Advanced Analytics expert will take matters further where the Data Analyst cannot. An in-depth analysis that can transform your organisation requires advanced technical skills and knowledge of modelling methods. What are the secret controls that need to be turned? How many people should a new user of a social media platform follow to have virtually guaranteed long-term activity? Our people can help you.
Are the data and skills available but can you still achieve more?
Data is on the rise and organisations are improving their data teams and infrastructures, yet often something is still missing: the translation between the data people and the rest of the organisation. Not only do solutions need to work technically, but they also need to be understood and used by the end user. Our Analytics Translators provide this link. They ensure that the Data Analyst can collaborate with the IT department as well as the Customer Service Officer in the interest of the organisation as a whole.

Our Data Scientists have worked on:
The COVID-19 Violence Tracker
The outbreak of the corona pandemic in early 2020 has turned the world upside down. In addition to countless infections, hospitalisations and deaths, we also saw an outbreak of violence in many countries. Citizens took to the streets, sometimes violently, to protest against the measures taken, but domestic violence also increased in many places and fear and frustration played a role in racism.
Reliable insight into crowds on trains and stations using an algorithm
An increasing number of people are traveling by public transportation. Several stations in The Netherlands are being rebuilt or renovated to keep up with the growing number of train passengers. For the rebuilding and layout plans, information was needed on station traffic. NS Stations also wanted to improve transfer safety in collaboration with ProRail.
Determining the location of gardens using Data Science
Residential investor Vesteda is working on a new website. If an available rental home has a garden, the location of the garden must be listed on the webpage of that home. This information was not yet available in the database. We were instructed to determine the location of the garden based on the coordinates of the homes.
How text analysis helps RNW Media to listen and take action
RNW Media builds online communities in countries with limited freedoms. In these communities, young people can read and discuss sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and civil rights. In addition, RNW Media is working on advocacy – putting the interests of young people on the map with governments.
Application of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and text mining for process improvement.
Fair Wear is a non-profit organisation that aims to improve the working conditions of employees in garment factories. The NGO has collected a lot of documentation about its activities in recent years, for example in the form of reports from a complaint line for factory employees, reports of audits that check whether factories comply with the guidelines, and reports of training for factory employees. This information is stored as typed text, usually in Word or PDF format.
Social listening in the real estate market
Vesteda was curious if social listening – monitoring and analysing social media discussions about a brand, competitors, products or hashtags/keywords – could add value to the organisation. To this end, we started a project that consisted of two parts: exploring possibilities for social listening in the Corporate Communication department and applying social listening in an ongoing Data Science project.

What is Data Science?
Everywhere at events and online, stories are told about what 'data science' is all about. Definitions are anything but consistent.
