What flies but is not a bird – artificial intelligence ‘Folli’ sees and knows

Artificial intelligence systems, known as ‘kratt’* in Estonian, are revolutionizing the way people tackle big, data-intensive, and repetitive tasks by providing faster and easier solutions. The government has a major role in developing these systems, as AI is increasingly being deployed in diverse areas. Estonia’s Heritage Board is one of the cultural institutions that recognizes

Andreas – Starting my career in STACC

I’d already had an interest in data science for multiple years when I graduated from a computer science Bachelor’s program. I took all the relevant Bachelor-level courses available and learned a bit on my own as well. So naturally, once I graduated, I started looking for a job as a data engineer or data scientist.

Renewable energy solutions – investment or cost for your clients?

Rocketing energy prices and growing energy security concerns have grown the interest in solar and wind production immensely. ROI calculations of these investments rely on a robust assessment of production outcomes and historical energy price data without any realistic outlook to future.  Production of renewable energy relies on uncontrollable weather conditions. Incorrect production estimates cause

Trading on the flexibility market

Rising energy consumption globally is leading to increased demand for renewable energy sources. Efforts to replace fossil fuels with renewables raise numerous issues – high energy prices, the complexity of selling to the grid for renewable energy producers, and increasing frequency volatility in the grid. This instability is largely caused by the unpredictable nature of
