Qualifications

We invented the field of machine learning inductive transfer.  Then we took machine learning into dozens of organizations over the years, implementing neural networks, decision trees, regression systems, and more,  in areas like hazardous waste management, forensic hair analysis, computer vision, and DNA pattern recognition for the Human Genome Project, and budgeting, where our systems built the calculators for over $100M of US government spending.

We are a five-star rated team, pushing the boundaries of machine learning into the new field of decision intelligence, which we invented.

What we can do for you

We build and integrate machine learning systems, and we’re passionate about demystifying this technology and making it accessible so that machine learning can be used throughout your organization to drive competitive advantage.

It’s all about your business, and your bottom line.

We do things like connecting data between S3 and Mahout / EMR,  running regressions in R / H2O, designing learning visualizations, designing success measurement code, finding the right number of hidden units in a neural network, and designing a machine learning solution to provide maximum value to your company, as soon as possible. We have a development and architecture team, can manage a team of analysts, train your staff, and can present to your executives.

But the details are less important than the business value they bring to you. We are known by our world-class clients to be fast, effective, and delightful to work with.

I will help you to understand how your data stack and machine learning can drive value for your organization, and how to supercharge your investment in these technologies to create business value.
Did you know that 10% of your data contains 90% of the value?  This means that most organizations are leaving money on the table: they could get to value from their data stack ten times faster.
Don’t wait to design an application that uses your data until all the data is cleansed, migrated, and processed. Because designing an initial model or baseline machine learning system can provide critical cost- ad time-saving intelligence.

I can help. I’m a five-star rated machine learning engineer (see some testimonials below).  I  invented the fields of inductive transfer and decision intelligence.  My CV is here.  I write regularly about machine learning topics.

What I can do for you

I build and integrate machine learning systems, and I’m passionate about demystifying this technology and making it accessible so that machine learning can be used throughout your organization to drive competitive advantage.

My work includes tasks like connecting data between S3 and Mahout / EMR,  running regressions in R or H2O, designing learning visualizations, designing success measurement code, finding the right number of hidden units in a neural network, and designing a machine learning solution to provide maximum value to your company, as soon as possible. I am a coder, can manage a team of analysts, train your staff, and present to your executives.

Over the years, I’ve built thousands of machine learning systems: neural networks, decision trees, regression systems, and more,  in areas like hazardous waste management, forensic hair analysis, computer vision, and DNA pattern recognition for the Human Genome Project.

I speak the language of business as well as “machine learning”-ese.  I’ll work with you on a focused project to get your needs met, and we’ll do it in record time and with minimal impact to your people and systems.

Working with my team at Quantellia, we also go deeper into the data stack, providing data management, robust high-performance enterprise-grade survey systems, and  our award-winning World Modeler™ software with data binding to many sources.

Announcing interactive web-based decision intelligence

At Quantellia, we’ve been delivering enterprise-scale, desktop- and PC-based decision intelligence models to our clients for a few years now, using our World Modeler™ software.  In the last few months, every single one of our clients has asked for our work to be delivered through a web interface, so we’ve been heads-down in delivery and development to meet their needs.  These are not available to be viewed by the general public, however, so I’ve spent the last few days building a demonstration to show you what we do, and as part of my answer to a recent Quora question on Agency theory as well as Mark’s upcoming talk on this topic at MLConf Seattle.

Meat and Bones: Machine learning and DI working together for evidence-based management

I had a great call with the CEO of a possible partner company for Quantellia this week, where I found myself saying that Decision Intelligence is the “bones” to the “meat” of machine learning.   The image above shows what I mean.  Each star shows an influence link, and each on of these is a possible place where the results of machine learning—whether it’s a decision tree, neural network, simple linear regression, or even a deep learner—contributes to the decision model. As you can see: lots of stars = lots of ways that machine learning can help a decision model to be as powerful as it can be.

What to do when complexity starts to eat you alive: in law, government, and organizations

I had a house once with a lot of stuff, and a big basement. Sometimes when I needed to find something quickly – a Philips screwdriver maybe, or a glue gun – there were just too many places to look, and it would have taken hours. So, I’ll confess, there were times I just went and bought a new screwdriver. Which added to the pile, and made it worse for the next time around. At the time, I always seemed to be too busy to take the time to organize things so this would stop happening. So for a few years it just kept getting worse.

I’m starting to see this pattern more broadly. Continue reading
