Crowdsourcing for Real-Time Economic Indicators

Premise gathers and analyzes millions of observations captured daily by a global network of contributors. By running machine-learning algorithms and leveraging on their data scientist expertise, they are able able to distill economic indicators and trends much faster (sometimes weeks before) than the conventional agencies.

At Ekumen we helped them developing their first mobile application prototype on Android, used to gather product price observations in the field. On the web side we worked closely with their team to evolve and maintain an ecosystem of ruby applications used for data gathering and visualization as well as team management. We also help them to develop internal tools for data analysis and visualization using elasticsearch, Scala and angular.js.
