The rise of digitization leads to huge and massive data sets available for companies. A key challenge is to utilize those data sets for smart business decisions. In particular Machine Learning (ML) methods and Artificial Intelligence (AI) offer new opportunities to learn from data sets and gather new insights. This translates directly into a competitive advantage. Examples are improved dynamic pricing strategies and a better understanding of consumer behaviour based on state-of-the-art machine learning methods. We offer research-based state-of-the-art statistical and econometric methods for analysing your data sets. Moreover we have access to a network of scholars and scientists from the leading universities in the world which enables us to deliver unique and tailor-made solutions to our clients putting them ahead of the AI and Big Data era.

Dynamic pricing strategy

In this project a dynamic pricing scheme was implemented for a major Asian ride-sharing company that helped to maximize gross revenue. In the first step the demand function for rides was estimated from the company’s data set with Deep Learning, improving upon traditional estimation methods for demand. From this estimated demand functions novel insights were obtained, e.g. the influence of weather conditions or concave pricing in distance. The demand function was used as an input to “solve” for the optimal pricing policy function which maximize gross revenue. The proposed pricing system leads to a small price increase on average, but 40% of the price will be lower. In sum, revenues could be increased by more than 5% and profits by an even larger amount.


Fraud detection

In the private health insurance bills are often flawed leading to reduced payments to the health service providers and hence saves money for the insurance company and insurees. Within this projects different architectures for Deep Learning for this problem were designed, implemented and compared. The prediction rules based on Deep Learning out-performed other Machine Learning methods and achieved very good results leading to better management of claims in the health insurance.

Operational Risk

Computing Economic Capital requirements for banks using robust, rigorous methodology for fitting loss distributions that accurately describe most common loss types occurring in banking. The methods have been successfully deployed at a major U.S. banking corporation.
