Mission

Turning your data into insights

My name is Ger Inberg, a Dutch data scientist with a background in software engineering.

I work remotely as a freelance data scientist. Getting insights out of data is something that I really like. Data visualization and machine learning are some techniques that I am using to achieve this.
I am a big open source believer since I think with sharing solutions we can achieve a lot more as a community. Therefore I prefer to use R and python for my daily work.

I have a passion for (endurance) sports and healthy living and I would love to help you out if you have a project in those areas!
On my website you can find some examples of my projects, most of them are links to a website or interactive visualization.

Have fun in browsing through the content and thank you for visiting!

Speed skating viz updated

Speed skating is one of my favorite sports to practice and to watch. This winter the Winter Olympics will be held in Beijing, China.  Will the Dutch be as successful as they were in Sochi and PyeongChang?  How many medals will the Chinese win? Four […]

Catchment Area Research Dashboard

In healthcare, the catchment area is the area served by a hospital or medical centre. The Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey has one main goal: to help individuals fight cancer. More specific they are targetting cancer with precision medicine, immunotherapy and clinical trials next to providing advanced cancer care […]

CITO public analysis

CITO is an institute in the Netherlands that support governments and schools so that they can develop world-class testing and monitoring systems to complete their educational programs. They have a lot of data regarding testing scores and it could be interesting to combine this data […]

Data visualization

A picture says more than a thousand words..but what exactly do you want to visualize?
I have seen a lot of examples of very good bus also very bad visualizations. For example a pie chart with more than 3 or 4 categories is not readable in my opinion. Because people are better at comparing lengths than areas, a bar chart is a better choice in many cases. I am using rainbow colors only occasionally since there is no “greater than” ordering in colors so it’s hard for a human to compare quantitative data. Until now I have used R/shiny, D3js, plotly, QlikView and Tableau for my data visualizations with most experience in the first 2.

Machine learning

Need to make predictions based on historical data? Or want to explore your data for certain patterns?

Machine learning is a discipline that can be applied to a lot of domains. IBM Watson changes the world of healthcare by applying machine learning. Many companies are working on self driving cars, which are all based on some sort of machine learning.

I have experience with supervised, unsupervised and reinforcement learning. In recent projects I have for example predicted nitrate level from image analysis and I have build a fraud detection algorithm based upon historical transactions.

Remote training

Are you interested in visualizing your data yourself? Do you want to start with R programming?

I offer remote training for a variety of topics related to R. In only a half day, you can be up and running with R and start with analyzing your data.

Topics for beginners include: introduction to R/RStudio, Git, RMarkdown, and Shiny. Please contact me in case of specific training needs.
