Applied Data Analytics Research and Enterprise Group

Organization profile

Applied Data Analytics REG image credit Clint Adair on UnsplashVast amounts of data are generated every day: from the text and visual content placed online by users and providers, to innumerable IoT data streams and the click trails and other collateral data emanating from users’ interaction with the online world, we need better methods to make sense of, manage, organise, visualise, utilise and monetise data.

The common aim in all data analytics is to turn data into information, and ultimately knowledge, that can be used to add value to businesses, help people lead healthier lives at all ages, optimise manufacturing processes, and enrich user experiences.

The Applied Data Analytics Research Group’s expertise is grounded in new and established methods and tools from computer science, statistics and mathematics including a wide range of machine learning and statistical modelling techniques. Building on these are more specialised approaches for the analysis of textual, image and structured numerical data. We have worked with a wide range of specific data types, including social media posts, free-text user comments, medical images, user-generated photographs, geolocation data, corporate and financial data, product lifecycle and PPS data, food labels, genomic data and medical data. This expertise in data methods and data types is complemented by specialisation in three application domains: (1) Health (BSMS: Ford, Cassell, Bremner, van Marwijk; PABS: Smith; CEM: Belz); (2) Business intelligence (UoB SPPO: Mullick; CEM: Chernov); and (3) Manufacturing processes (CEM: Song, Belz, Wang).
