The click-through rate (CTR) is a ratio that represents how often people click on a specific digital resource, such as a blog entry, ad or hotel promotion. Accurately estimating CTR is critical for determining the price we are willing to pay for ads or deciding on the user segment we want to target. We therefore designed a real-time CTR prediction algorithm for an online travel company based on the analysis of millions of high-dimensional data items representing its customers’ behaviour.
We provide support for projects. We provide project consultancy and monitoring services by means of joint working sessions that allow businesses to monetise and exploit available data through knowledge: to improve internal operations, provide their customers with a more efficient service or even explore new lines of business.
Industrial research projects in the field of science data. For example, the development of predictive models based on data from financial institutions or the development of a content-based TV recommender system.
We offer customised training. We conduct intensive in-house courses for companies in which their employees are trained to develop and exploit opportunities to make more intensive use of the data companies have at their disposal.
Development of a system for diagnosing intestinal motility disorders based on images taken by a wireless endoscope camera that describes a range of visual patterns, both static and dynamic, from which an objective diagnosis can be made.
Image search engines receive huge volumes of images every day, but very few of these have any impact on the internet. Of course, the aesthetics and technique of images are key to ensuring they have an impact on the internet and are not overlooked.
Invalcor is a center specialized in the functional assessment of the locomotor system that by means of advanced technology objective aspects such as the measure of the mobility, strength, power, resistance, or fatigue of a damaged body region. The company is interested in designing a prediction system that, based on the historical data of its activity, attends the diagnosis work to doctors.
Within the framework of the Cartographic Plan of Catalonia, the Cartographic and Geological Institute of Catalonia is working on the elaboration of the technical specifications of the land covers Map of Catalonia. The ICGC has commissioned us a study to explore the viability of the application of deep learning techniques in the generation of maps.
DataScience@UB designs and prototype a machine that includes an intelligent vision system based on semantic segmentation through convolutional neural networks to automate the classification of leather.
