In Analysis, Modelling and Simulation our role is to ensure our customers get the most out their data. Our aims are to ensure: that starting data is of the highest quality; that it is quickly and efficiently processed into clear, meaningful information; that we extract deeper insight from it; and that we provide robust, data-led advice to our customers, and take sound, evidence-based actions.
Our work is an exciting blend of maths, physics, engineering, computer science and IT. We are at the cutting edge for designing and applying tools, software and automation techniques that enable the rapid and timely transfer of relevant data and information.
The Data Analytics teams within AMS consist of a mix of data scientists (exploring data sets and algorithms) and data engineers (building the infrastructure to capture and process the data) and many roles in between. Our daily work involves applying both conventional and novel machine learning techniques to customer problems as appropriate and can cover everything from numerical data to natural language processing and signals analysis through to imagery interpretation. Where necessary, we also collect or simulate data using mathematical models. We frequently work with colleagues from Human Behaviour, Autonomy and Applied Science and other areas to provide cross-domain insight and we are increasingly using deep neural net-based AI and cloud technologies (AWS/Nebula) to build solutions.
