Turn your Data into Business

ML Analytics is a Data Science boutique specialized in generating business value from your company data, using state of the art Artificial Intelligence tools.

What is the value of prediction for your business?

How impactful would it be to have the right prediction, at the right time?- If I take this action, how would it affect the business?
- Given the prediction of high demand of product "A" in the near future, how much stock shall I buy now?
- These customers are at high risk to move to the competition, what is the best strategy to increase their satisfaction with us?
- My “virtual intelligence” recommends that I anticipate the inspection of this vehicle as it is likely it will break soon.
- Is this operation a fraud?
- What is the expected value of this new customer to my company?
These are a few of many use cases where Data Science could support you, especially in these uncertain times.Are you ready to prepare your future?

How do we do it?

We don’t just do Predictive Analytics. More than measuring, analysing and finding patterns on your data, we do Prescriptive Analytics: we create optimization algorithms that simulate scenarios to support your decisions in the real world.We not only bring the state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence methods but also your business expertise into our models, so the end result is a highly customizable solution that will answer exactly to your needs.In order to do so, in our team we have complimentary high skilled researchers and business analytics elements that “talk” to each relevant area of your company, give them mentorship, and translate all the complex analysis into business words everyone can understand and utilize.

We're different

ML Analytics takes the approach of being a client’s partner and together they develop R&D (research and development) algorithms to answer to the exact customer’s needs.As our customers happily mention: they act like being part of our team instead of being "just" a provider.Given our experience on developing tailor-made AI models for space sector, all our projects are developed with greater attention to the business and data details to guarantee performance and robustness.

What we can do for you

Machine Learning Models

Custom Predictive Models

Development of Artificial Intelligence models that capture the regularity in your problem’s data. Are there no off-the-shelf algorithms suitable to model your problem? We'll develop custom ones!

Prescriptive Analytics

Prescriptive Analytics

Good predictions are insufficient unless accompanied by a prescription of how they should drive your decision-making. We can provide you with optimized intervention plans, driven by model predictions, to meet your business goals.

Model Diagnosis

Model Diagnosis

If you already have prediction models running in your company, we can diagnose their “health”, by combining performance monitoring, Explainable Artificial Intelligence and concept drift detection. Models are black-boxes only until you turn on the lights.

Model Validation & Testing

Model Verification & Validation

Do you want to confidently deploy a model? Will it be operating in a critical domain where you need performance guarantees, such as a space mission? Our Verification & Validation engine can automatically probe your model, identify its failure modes, and assist you in fixing them.

YOUR R&D Partner

We were recognized by SIFIDE (the Portuguese Tax Incentive System in R&D) and ANI (the Portuguese Innovation Agency) as a qualified Research and Development (R&D) entity, to design and deliver Artificial Intelligence Research and Development projects and services.This publicly recognises our continuous and rigorous scientific and technological curiosity, states our high-level competences to provide R&D services for third parties.Tax benefits: a client of our R&D services, if subject to Portuguese taxes, can apply for tax reductions.

About us

We are Portugal's first family-run Data Science company. We are a team of data scientists and business analytics experts who have worked for a variety of companies worldwide, ranging from retail, services companies, banking, and even the aerospace sector. Our founders are Marília Felismino Simões and her husband Luís Simões.

Luís F. Simões

Luís is an Artificial intelligence specialist with a long experience as an applied researcher in industry. For many years, he has collaborated with the European Space Agency in the R&D of AI solutions to space problems. His main areas of expertise are Machine Learning and global optimization.

Marília Felismino Simões

With more than 15 years' experience in Data Science, Marília has in the past worked at high level positions in Amsterdam, for TomTom and TNT/FedEx, where she supervised Data Science teams, and managed TomTom's vast worldwide ecommerce business of maps sales.

Our team is driven by the mission to transform data into business opportunities. Many companies are unaware of the enormous potential that lies hidden in their own data. ML Analytics positions itself as a strategic ally companies may rely upon to unleash this wealth.

Let's do it!

Luís Simoes

“Portuguese researcher wins award with artificial intelligence tool to study exoplanets”

Our Co-founder, Luís F. Simões' won the "Gold medal" at "#Ariel Machine Learning Data Challenge"! He developed the best Artificial Intelligence algorithm for the European Space Agency - ESA's Ariel Mission, to be launched in 2029.
So many nights and weekends crafting these algorithms over the competition's three months. Luís managed to win against big teams from renowned international research institutes!
With this achievement we reached more than 50 media outlets worldwide and you can find them all in the link below.
