Our Data Science and Research teams assist you along the entire lifecycle of a project, from inception and design, to implementing tailored solutions and extract key findings.

We apply Data Science to process and analyze large datasets, including remote sensing data, to build cost efficient and scalable solutions.

SOLID DATA FOUNDATIONS, SOLID SCIENCE

We engage with clients early in a project to provide research guidance and definition. We develop methodologies, formulate hypotheses, design experiments, find complementary data sources, and devise a research pipeline to uncover the targeted insights.

We search, collect and combine data from multiple sources, including field research, open datasets, social media, and remote sensing where appropriate.

For long-term projects, we devise data pipelines to ensure predictive models can be leveraged in the future.


ANALYTICAL INSIGHT, LEARN AND SCALE

We provide in-depth analyses of the data, identifying trends and important features, finding anomalies and correlations, and creating interactive visualisations.

We specialise in scaling the power of human analysis through the design, optimisation and implementation of the latest Machine Learning algorithms. We train algorithms to pick up on the nuances experts do, based on information provided by them. Our technology minimises the work of evaluating data, assisting on decisions at large scales, freeing your team for more sensitive work.

Once optimised and trained, our models continue working real time, classifying, identifying, or predicting on newly incoming data, so that insights are never far behind your data.

PROVIDING THE KEY MESSAGES RELEVANT TO YOUR WORK

Whatever the task—from detecting hate speech in online forums, identifying objects in images, to predicting the likelihood of protests in a given location —we are experts in devising and training the most effective and accurate models.

We do not deal only in numbers. Our team has experience working in peacebuilding, post-conflict, and development scenarios, and we understand the limitations that organisations face in such environments.

We embed political and social analysis into our work, making sure not just to provide you the most up-to-the-minute analysis, but the most relevant, accurate, and thoughtful insights from your data.


TRANSPARENT RESEARCH AND ETHICAL PROVISIONS

Good science is in AKTEK’s DNA. All our studies include a thorough methodology description, allowing for replication and comparison.

We challenge research assumptions by ensuring a discussion around ethics and privacy in all our projects from the earliest stages, ensuring we protect data and privacy.

We provide our clients and partners with directions on how to use and share the information from our work responsibly, always bearing in mind the privacy and safety of the people involved.
