Analytical Ideas

Data Analysis Australia has created a series of short papers titled Analytical Ideas, which discuss developments that are relevant to our clients and provide an insight into our approach to solving problems. A range of topics have already been covered and new papers will be added on a regular basis.

The Conscience of Algorithms

While the moral conundrum of driver-less vehicle algorithms is being hotly debated, Data Analysis Australia delves into the ethical minefield of other algorithms in the artificial intelligence and machine learning space.

From social media platforms and Cambridge Analytica’s debatable influence on the US election, to Centrelink’s robodebt debacle, our experiences as individuals and a society are already being influenced by algorithms.

Is it time to consider regulating the algorithms, or should they remain confidential, trademarked secrets?

Explore our Interactive Dashboards

Visually appealing, interactive and easy to use – dashboards are effective tools for KPI management, tracking and day to day operational performance. To demonstrate, we have developed some interactive dashboards for a fictional ice cream company Jen and Terry’s, in their battle for market share with rival Batman-Robbins.

These dashboards are fully customisable and have been developed using the free statistical package R. This means that unlike other dashboard packages, we can develop a bespoke dashboard solution for you that won’t involve expensive licensing fees to develop and maintain.
