For 15 years Ian has consulted with private companies to build new IP to solve specific problems using the Python technology stack.
Ian has worked in a number of industries to provide Intellectual Property including:
  • Insurance risk-selection models for low-propensity high-cost claims
  • Anomaly detection on noisy flight-sensor data to identify risky flight characteristics
  • NLP on social and conventional media to identify break-out trends
  • Computer vision enabled using a cloud API for mobile developers
  • Company name-to-name and product-to-product matching between databases with no clear join key
  • Multi-core high performance flood risk modelling
  • High resolution X-Ray spectroscopy based prototype-semiconductor-structure material layer reverse engineering
“Ian joined us as our Principal Data Scientist, some 2 years ago and has been a great asset to the team. He turned our vision of the data products we could build into a reality and has helped bring them into Production giving us cutting edge IP. He helped build and became a very productive member of our team. The problems we are solving are incredibly complex and without Ian's help I doubt we would be where we are today. “
