‘Data Scientist’ can mean a lot of things; this page is to introduce you to what we can do to assist you with your data science needs. To understand Dr Beattie’s extensive pedigree please read the About and Publications pages or peruse the Case Notes for detailed insight.
Without a coherent and cogent strategy covering all aspects of a data science project the chances of success are slim.
The mantra of ‘collect more data’ does not work if the data is not collected correctly; it just creates a bigger mound of errors to complicate the lives of statisticians.
The strategy must start with the business or scientific need, next examine available data sources, assess data corruptions and confounders and build a systematic plan to ensure the data collected is clean, relevant and useable.
Every research steps into the unknown and Dr Beattie can assist with developing critical risk management and progress monitoring for optimial progress and ROI.
Too many big data or real-world data projects fail because the data was not collected optimally and no amount of advanced statistical procedures could correct the biases and errors present.
Having worked on several real-world projects floundering for this very reason, Dr Beattie is skilled in turning a critical eye on the data and its collection. He has substantial experience in error assessment, setting up controlled experiments to tease apart biases, system noise, methodological inconsistencies and the natural variation inherent in complex data. Understanding leads to control which leads to improvement.
Each data collection must strengthen the signal in the dataset, not the noise.
Dr Beattie has developed a number of novel signal processing approaches that are paradigm shifts leading to radical new possibilities.
Raw data is never pure, there is always some corruption, errors, fluctuations or confounding problems. The exciting nature of data is that there is often ways of tracing these inconsistencies and correcting for them.
Dr Beattie’s bespoke signal processing algorithms were developed in the forges of real world science and are uniquely placed to tap into the hidden potential of many datasets. They have been proven not just in scientific literature, but also in the commercial marketplace. Discover the power of Dr Beattie’s Data Processing that could be accessible to your data.
It has been said that data is the most valuable commodity in the business world today; that is not correct, it is the insight that comes out of good data science that is valuable.
Perhaps you already have data and it hasn’t worked, or it has worked and you want to find out what other secrets it holds. Dr Beattie is a skilled expert at exploratory and confirmatory data analyses. An optimal data analysis plan requires a deep understanding of the data and the context it was drawn from Throughout his career Dr Beattie has worked in interdisciplinary projects and is skilled at working with project team members form a wide range of backgrounds, identifying the key requirements in new application areas, thereby optimising the analysis strategy required for meaningful insight.
Dr Beattie’s research extends to both the academic and the commercial world; he has worked through the development and launch of commercial products available on the market today.
