Purpose and goal
The purpose of the project was the develop a digital data collection tool to identify and score/grade expertise. As a result, automated collection and analysis of public data render possible individualized expertise counseling to an extent not possible today. To facilitate this, Previro’s algorithms are developed for both internal and external use. By and large, the project targets have been reached, although larger fulfillment and scale in the technical development would have been ideal.
Expected results and effects
The results include a basic model for automated data collection and evaluation of this data in relation to the individual’s relevance for expertise consulting. Complete commercialization remains although the basic concept has been tested with potential users, including external clients. The expected effects include among other things, increased client credibility and long-term potential in Previros business model.
Planned approach and implementation
The implementation of the project has by and large followed the structure of the sub components outlined initially (see below). Timing and content of these have been adjusted somewhat as the project has progressed, to maximize the long-term potential of the project. (1)Web scraping algorithm for data collection (2)Self-learning algorithm for expertise scoring (3)Prototype ´development and training of algorithms (4)Commercialization and iteration of the technology in larger scale
