Bays Receives High Commendation at the British Data Awards 2023

We’re thrilled to announce that Bays Consulting have been highly commended in the ‘Data for Good Consulting Initiative of the Year’ category at the British Data Awards 2023!

The ‘Data for Good Consulting Initiative of the year’ category recognises organisations that have demonstrated a strong commitment to using data for social good. The judges were impressed with our home hazard predictions that utilise machine learning to identify and address home hazards at the address level. This approach optimises maintenance efforts, reduces costs, and ensures equitable distribution of resources. The predictions will assist organisations in reaching net zero goals and fostering safe and healthy living environments for all.

Commenting on the recognition, Dr Sophie Carr, Founder of Bays Consulting said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be highly commended in the ‘Data for Good Consulting Initiative of the Year’ category. This acknowledgement reflects the hard work and dedication of our team, who are passionate about using data to create positive social impact.” She continued: “If you’re going to be known for something, we’re proud to be known for doing good. We will continue to use our expertise to use data to drive meaningful change and make a positive difference in the world.”

Jason Johnson, Co-Founder of Predatech and British Data Awards judge said: “I’d like to extend my congratulations to all of our Highly Commended organisations. With 43% more entries received this year compared to 2022, being Highly Commended really is a great achievement. I hope that all the organisations and individuals taking part this year feel immensely proud to be recognised for their data success stories on a national stage.”
