Via Science applies Big Math to solve high-value, complex business problems.
Via Science’s commercial headquarters is located in Cambridge, Massachusetts
and its advanced data science and engineering center is based in Montréal, Québec.
Using its microservices architecture, Focus™ (released in 2016), Via Science solves mission critical risk assessment, anomaly detection and causal analytics challenges in both the energy and security sectors.
Focus™ ingests, transforms and analyzes both streaming and batch data in faster, scalable and more efficient ways. The architecture allows Via Science to create small, independent modules that can handle
varying types and frequency of data as well as differences in operational deployment.
This modular approach means Via Science can offer customized solutions to each client.
At the core of Focus™ is REFS™, Via Science’s patented machine learning engine.
Based on Bayesian networks (new branch of mathematics), REFS™ excels at handling sparse and missing data:
a major problem in real world applications, such as with power grids or in cybersecurity.
Clients can access Via Science’s technology directly from the cloud, on-premise or
by leveraging our expert team of data scientists to create models on their behalf.
These models can run on commodity hardware or be integrated into client business intelligence tools
to analyze new data (e.g., streaming real-time data feeds of millions of events per minute) and discover:
When something will occur (predictions)
Why something will occur (causal explanations)
How to make more or less of something occur (simulations)
Via Science = Big ( Math + Computing + Data )
