I'm looking for an experienced data scientist who has had some experience working on process optimisation (engineering related) problems. My data set is from a power plant desulphurisation process which has approx. 100,000 observations and 30 variables (including power). Using this data set, I would like to model the behaviour of power consumption with respect to the other variables. Then based on the derived model, find the optimal solution at which power is minimised subject to a few inequality constraints. This is an interesting problem and I'm confident that whoever takes on this challenge will find it rewarding! Practical experience in Neural Network Modelling, Nonlinear Programming and R will be considered favourably. If selected for an interview, further details about the project/expectation will be provided. I look forward to receiving your application.

Seeking a disparate data collection expert. This is the first phase of a much larger project. If you can complete the first project, the remaining projects will be yours as well. At first, we need to build a desktop application which will extract data from legal notices. This data is random; however, there are some consistencies which a true expert can use to produce reliable results. The desktop application is temporary, but needed, to thoroughly test the algorithm and ensure that the results are reliable. Eventually, we will build a bot/API to gather the data from hundreds of sites, but for now, let's focus on the desktop application and the proof of concept. I have attached examples of some of the legal notices. I can provide many more examples. I have also attached an example of the desired output/results. I can provide many more examples. I can also provide a database which includes the name, address & phone number of all of over 5,000 facilities. Please do...
