Field: Data Science

Main Research: Data Science for Public Security and Consumer Protection

Experience: Andrew Lindley has specialized in area of data science for public security since 2018 with a dedicated research focus on applying AI for consumer protection. His recently carried out research activities include data based evidence and analysis of price discrimination/personal pricing effects in online retail as well as developing tools for real-time identification of fraudulent e-commerce offerings. With the AI powered Fake-Shop Detector service a major milestone was achieved in preventing citizens from being exploited by Fake-Shops. Andrew Lindley published an annotated ground-truth dataset of archived Fake-Shops first of its kind and free to use for scientific and non-commercial research purposes, the machine-learning models achieve a 97% accuracy in classifying Fake-Shops correctly, solely based on intrinsic features of the site and the distributed and scalable infrastructure is serving 750k API calls per day.
