Internship: Data engineering project: data anomaly detection based on AI/ML algorithms 

Your future job

Getting information out of (big)data through analytics is an ongoing trend. More and more technology vendors are coming up with tools and platforms to support this. So does Google, our used cloud platform.

Next to the development of AI/ML algorithms to analyse data, these algorithms need to be embedded within the application landscape in order to be used in an operational environment.

The goal of the project is to identify anomalies (using AI/ML algorithms) in several data sets (sales, financial, supply chain, employee,... related data), to 'productise' them and to present these data in a user friendly way to our business customers so that corresponding actions can be taken.

The project includes the following steps:

  • Data preparation (gathering, transforming, cleansing,...)
  • Data analysis & development of AI/ML models
  • Productisation of the solution (setting up data pipelines, versioning of data sets, service wrapper around ML algorithms, pipelines for deploying different versions of algorithms,...)
  • Implement a user friendly application to present the analysis results to the users so that corrective actions can be taken
  • Implement metrics to follow up the evolution of data anomalies
