Example cases from the field

  • Case energy sector company: We developed a machine learning model for a Finnish energy company to predict the heat consumption of end customers. The model is part of a demand elasticity product, which evens out power peaks in heat consumption by throttling the customers' heat demand in a controlled manner and aims to avoid the use of expensive control power. The three-phase project utilized historical data and machine learning, enabling us to create predictions about the influence of external factors such as temperature, wind direction, and seasonal changes.

  • Case Cross Wrap: We’re helping Cross Wrap to automate waste and recycling industrial processes using machine vision. Cross Wrap wanted to improve efficiency and service quality and minimize manual work steps in the industrial processing of their plastic waste bales. Our delivery consisted of the necessary training for the utilization of machine vision and edge computing tailored to the customer's needs, the development of the general architecture of the solution, and the design of a medium-term development roadmap for utilizing Azure's machine vision services. The client appreciated our unique approach, which emphasized understanding needs instead of direct solutions. Read the entire case here.

  • Case Finnish Confederation of Business, EK: The Finnish Confederation of Business and Industry, EK, and its member unions collect and compile statistics on labor disputes and their effects with a modern information system developed by HiQ. The system was updated to state-of-the-art technology, as we implemented an artificial intelligence module based on large language models (LLM) to automate the most time-consuming manual work steps of data collection. The module monitors and classifies the network's news streams and helps to anticipate and report possible labor disputes. The artificial intelligence module collects the data in an easy-to-understand format that is simple to interpret and follow. The previous manual process was substantially streamlined when the processing of pre-identified and digested inputs replaced the need for manual active data collection of network news streams.
