Our work can have direct impact and help businesses thrive through Knowledge Transfer Partnerships. Through KTPs our researchers can evidence the value and impact of their work, while businesses benefit from expertise and cutting-edge research techniques.
Some of our KTPs have included:
- Working with the Port of Felixstowe to improve efficiency of complex scheduling processes. We assisted in the development of optimisation algorithms using artificial intelligence, which helped with both scheduling staff resources and solving scheduling problems. This reduced waste and improved customer service.
- Carrying out a data science KTP with knowledge resource company Mondaq that helped them make the most of large data sets. They were awarded Winner of Best KTP Partnership 2018.
- Members of our data science group are currently working on a KTP project with online grocery company Ocado, that will utilise Big Data with machine learning and forecasting to improve delivery efficiency, which will reduce cost to the company and the carbon footprint of deliveries.
