What is Appsilon

We are a group of data science consultants for whom data tells a story. This approach translates into an end-to-end process where we provide value at each  step. On one end, we deliver automatized data acquisition and business validation. This flows into model creation which is the crucial part. At the end, we deliver beautiful and responsive Shiny dashboards as stakeholders need a way of interacting and understanding data. Some of the industries we work with include but are not limited to Finance, Healthcare, Logistics, Retail and Real Estate.

Appsilon delivers the most advanced R Shiny apps, data science consulting services and support with R Shiny and Python Dash technologies. We have impressive experience in machine learning in image recognition and predictive analytics for enterprise. If you have a difficult problem that requires strong analytical skills or think that your data is being underutilized, then we’re the right people!

Our contribution to open source can be summarized by thousands of downloads, we inspire discussion and growth that allow others to learn from our accomplishments and to share with us.

Case studies:

Optimization in port management

Maritime AIS Safety Cargo management

Working with ports drives the efficient flow of goods. This foundational business has experienced an explosion in the number of data points available thanks to developments in sensors, IoT, software, and increasing global complexity. In this visualization, you can see how we expedite the process of loading and unloading goods.

Route prediction can help both ports and crew, as we inform everyone ahead of time about incoming vessels and help captains choose the most time and cost effective ports. Traders can also benefit by having real time updates, taken from Automatic Identification System (AIS) data. 

  • Combines Satellite and AIS data in real time
  • Forecast behaviour
  • Improves safety and efficiency

Automatic Valuation Models

Real Estate AVM Data Scraping

There is a famous case of a data scientist helping find a cheaper location for a new firehouse, whilst decreasing reaction times to all locations served. We do that, at scale, with the help of Automated Valuation Models. You can see differences real estate prices of specific plots and subplots in New York City. Changes in time and trends can be seen on a granular level. Expert knowledge is incorporated into the models and improves results by giving us more than data, but also years of experience.

Our approach to combining models with highly functions user interfaces drastically improves the usefulness of our models. Anyone from developers, facility managers to real estate investors can benefit from our tool. We model and predict future trends to help municipal planners, developers and even citizen investors looking for a tangible nest egg.

  • Intuitive and functional
  • Forecast future behavior
  • Augmented with Expert Knowledge

Satellites image analysis in agriculture

Image recognition Deep learning KERAS

Satellites follow Moore’s Law, in that the resolutions and image frequency exponentially increase and improve over time. We take advantage of such satellite imagery and deep learning to automatically recognize images and discover insights. The case you can see is from an agricultural plot of land where our model has identified three lost areas of corn. Farmers can use this when calculating their losses and identifying areas of improvement.

Such technology is not restricted to agriculture, but can be applied to a multum of industries. We can help shopping malls and offices extract insights from their parking lots. We can identify and track the migration of groups of land and sea animals. We are not yet at live tracking, but regular and recurring images are enough to benefit and add new business use cases to your company while staying ahead of the competition.

  • 30cm per pixel
  • Minimal travel and on-site costs
  • Deep Learning Image Recognition

a journey from basic prototype to production-ready Shiny dashboard

We will start with a basic shiny dashboard that uses no libraries. Then I will show you how we can enhance it using two different approaches based on the most popular UI frameworks: bootstrap and semantic UI. Then I'll show you a pure custom version.

HackRcity 2019 recap: hacking the “coolest city” contest

The city of Poznań wanted to know why it didn't rate highly with tourists. So they gave loads of data to a gathering of developers to gain some insight. TL;DR: we learned a lot from the hackathon & won the thing. R Shiny gave us a slight edge. :)
