Machine Learning Consulting Services
Want to make data-driven decisions faster, boost your efficiency, and enhance customer experience? Or to build an innovative product, providing your clients with such advantages? Employ smart machines as your allies! With us as your machine learning consulting partner, you can leverage ML algorithms’ power for your success.
What is Machine Learning, and Why Do You Need ML Consultants
Machine learning, or ML, is about using computer algorithms that can be ‘trained’ to perform some operations without explicit programming. They ‘learn’ with the help of human-labeled datasets or can identify patterns in data on their own. This technology has a variety of uses – have a look at Our Machine Learning Expertise section.
However, ML is a complex technology that bears fruit only if used wisely. You can hire in-house experts, but it will take time and significant investments in team augmentation. Our machine learning consulting services will provide swift access to ML expertise. We will help you to:
Decide whether ML is a good fit for your business case
Our consultants will analyze if implementing this complex technology into your product is feasible. If it is, they will point out the biggest opportunities to drive returns and growth. Otherwise, they will suggest alternatives to do the job.
Plan ML implementation
Our experts who have profound experience in implementing this technology, will guide your team to avoid common pitfalls. They will help use ML with the greatest benefit, automating routine tasks, boosting productivity, or even providing new capabilities.
Collect and prepare data for ML algorithms properly
This task is essential for training and employing ML algorithms successfully. Our team can advise you on how to mine, combine, and transform data from different sources, ensuring the absence of biases.
Train, test, and fine-tune ML models
Our consultants will help you to experiment with different parameters while feeding the algorithm with data. Also, they can advise you on how to run various tests to ensure your machine-learning pipeline works as intended.
Deploy machine learning solutions
We have experience with systems, personalizing customer experience, chatbots, image analysis tools, and many other ML-based products. Check out Our Machine Learning Expertise section to learn more.
Our Machine Learning Expertise
Data Analytics Tools
Our experts can arm you with ML-powered tools to convert a torrent of data from various sources into actionable insights. We provided RevenueCompass, a commercial intelligence platform, with an ML engine generating sales predictions for wholesalers.
User Experience Personalization
We can help you win the loyalty of your customers by leveraging ML algorithms to provide personalized offers. For instance, our app for the Ziscuit grocery store offers users the most cost-efficient purchase suggestions. Also, we’ve developed an ML-based solution for the ToDoo.Digital project. It offers a personalized learning strategy for each student.
With our assistance, you can communicate with customers more efficiently using Artificial Intelligence. For example, we’ve armed Opesta, a marketing automation SaaS application for Facebook messenger, with AI-based functionality to answer subscribers’ questions.
Text Recognition, Image and Audio Analysis
Use our expertise to help you automate the routine and time-consuming process of dealing with paper documents. We helped EmpireHWC, our client from the healthcare industry, to conduct patient surveys quickly and efficiently using image analysis. We’ve also built an invoice parsing platform for PinWaste, a waste management company. DysTech, a platform identifying reading needs, uses our ML assessment tool to process audio files from users.

2. How are different industries improving productivity with the help of artificial intelligence and data science?
There are various productivity-boosting use cases for ML in different industries. For instance, manufacturing benefits from AI-powered predictive maintenance. Moreover, algorithms can examine different parameters (the quantity of materials consumed, cycle times, temperatures, downtime, etc.) to modify the production runs.
Customer-facing businesses can boost their operations by using chatbots. Any business dealing with large quantities of documents will benefit from the ability of artificial intelligence to extract and analyze data from them. The use of machine learning in consulting can help to avoid costly errors. For example, algorithms may discover obscure tendencies and outcomes within the client’s business processes.

3. What types of machine learning are there?
ML algorithms are classified into supervised, semi-supervised, unsupervised, and reinforcement learning. Here is how they differ.
In supervised learning, the algorithm looks for a way to derive the same conclusions as humans using labeled data as an example. Supervised learning tasks include classification, forecasting, and regression. The semi-supervised approach is similar, but algorithms use both labeled and unlabeled data.
In unsupervised learning, the algorithm must analyze data to identify patterns. Clustering and dimension reduction fall into this category.
During reinforcement learning, the machine is taught by trial and error. Using a given set of parameters, actions, and end values, the algorithm generates different ‘rules’ to fit them, trying to determine the best one.
