Why Oxytocin, Dophamine & Adrenalin are key to creating engaging Data Products ?

Human behaviors, rituals & habits are the outcome of complex interplay of the environment and experiences they have been exposed to. These definitely play a big role in shaping our product interaction experience. All of us have intuitively understood the importance of "cognitive resonance" in the first 8 seconds we interact with a product and how that experience has subsequently shaped our outlook to our product. As…

How we survived a near death experience in a Big Data Project ? A Story from the trenches

One month back Flutura was in  a meeting with a customer in Houston where we were involved in an IOT big data project . It was a very tense meeting ... Budgets were being slashed, heads were rolling because of the steep drop in Oil prices. The CEOs office was forensically examining all projects thru a massive magnifying glass. The tension in the room was palpable. The cross functional team had spent a lot of time building a…

Data Science + Behavioral Science = Force Multiplier ! 3 User Stories

The word “Force Multiplier,” in military usage, refers to an enabler or a combination of enablers, which make a given force more effective than that same force would be without it.  

So what force multipliers can be used in the world of Data Products ?

Based on our experience in curating intelligent data products for the industrial world we feel a Data Product needs a healthy dose of 2 things

1. Data Science = Seeing the unseen       (…

Why Data Scientists create poor Data Products ? ( And 5 things that can be done to change this )

As the consumer and industrial world gets massively digitized Data products are being baked into critical processes at a very high rate. These data products distill signals from massive torrent of human generated and machine generated data to drive a front line action . At this point we wanted to distinguish between 2 types of data products which we have seen in the market place

  1. Consumer Data…

5 levels of machine learning

There is a seismic shift underway in the engineering industries. The decreased cost of sensors, the increased amount of instrumentation on assets and need for new revenue streams are forcing engineering firms to reimagine business models.  The fusion of “atoms with bytes” promises to unlock new value previously unrecognized which generate additional revenue streams predicated on intelligence generated from the data. As machines…

5 Analytical Constructs for Modelling Energy Prices

As IOT Data proliferates one of the game changing use cases which it enables is dynamic pricing. As assets get instrumented one can have usage based pricing of assets on lease. We are already seeing disruptions in pricing model in the automotive industry where sensor data which is a proxy for driving habits is fuelling usage based insurance premiums.

Flutura has been working with Utility companies which is one of the industries in Industrial Internet/IOT category undergoing…

22 Non Statistical Questions for a Statistician

We have always believed that when the world of business collides with the world of math, magic unfolds. As these 2 worlds collide, it also presents a set of unique challenges - bridging the semantic language gap between business and math. Modelling complex business outcomes using math requires an interdisciplinary team consisting of business folks, data folks and math folks. While doing so business folks are always at a loss because a language chasm exists. Math folks love their ”geek…

3 min Healthcare Big Data Video

We have tried to synthesize the most disruptive big data use cases into a compact . 3 Minute video

at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWPUxLr-u9k

 

It covers 6 use cases , 4 healthcare data streams and hopefully sets the stage for curating more use cases in an area which truly needs a lot of healthy transformations !!!
