An innovation space for predictive analytics using data science and rapid prototyping.



Algospark is an innovation space for predictive analytics using data science and rapid prototyping. We work with clients to uncover insights, quantify value and fast track the development and delivery of new ideas.



New service ideas or process change projects can be expensive, complex and involve long time frames. Our innovation space fast tracks design while minimising wider organisational dependencies. That means you save significant time and money.



We begin from a user centric perspective, use a data driven design approach and then develop prototypes using a business agile process. We combine the best elements of service design, pragmatic data science and financial evaluation.


Algospark projects span a wide range of challenges and use cases across various industries. Our prototypes cover a mix of techniques that include forecasting, recommending, prioritising, anomaly detection, matching, clustering and allocating. We use these prototypes to fast track delivery of new service offerings and increase process efficiency. Quantification and maximizing value are always at the heart of our solutions.

  • Scoping Phase - Analysis and insight with preliminary value quantification
  • Design Phase - Applied insight, prototype build, business case and project plan
  • Delivery Phase - Partner with delivery specialists for project roll out and full value realisation

Solution Components

Our solutions are designed with leading data science applications, prototyping platforms and cloud based web frameworks to ensure easy transition from prototype to full scale solutions.
