8a.019.JYU - PoC for Statistical Modeling and Visualization of Human Cognition and Strategic Business Data (STRATOS)

Project - Summary

Physical workspace can have a notable impact on the work performance, level and quality of interaction, and the stress levels of the employees of an organization. Understanding the impacts of the physical workspace enables and justifies improving the performance of an organization through improvements in the physical workspace. Business consultants are working in a very data-intensive field, in which gathering, manipulating, and utilizing data plays a crucial role. As the amount of data continuously grows, so does the workload of a business consultant. Automating a part of a consultant's work helps in improving the efficiency of the work and produces savings in time and resources when the consultant can focus on more demanding tasks. In this project we sought for an understanding on how stress, self-efficacy, teamwork and perceived productivity correlated in a remote work setting, and built a research setting for measuring interaction in a physical workspace - which can be utilized in the next phase, when employees are able to return back to their offices after the COVID-19 situation is no more as severe as currently. Other part of this project focused on utilizing AI/ML in automating the valuation of a company and providing a business consultant means to work more efficiently in their more basic tasks with the help of automation.
