About Me

My name is Gary Hutson and I have been working in the public sector for over 15 years, splitting my time between Nottinghamshire Police, Nottinghamshire County Council and Nottingham University Hospitals.

I have expertise and interest in the following areas:

  1. R
  2. Statistics
  3. Object Orientated Programming i.e. C# and VB.Net
  4. Web Development (Javascript, PHP, HTML and CSS
  5. Python
  6. VBA for Excel and Access
  7. Machine Learning

I enjoy anything technical and have worked on a number of interesting projects in my time, deploying the right analytical technique for the job.

In the past three years I have gotten involved in Machine Learning in a big way and have deployed algorithms to use NHS information better.

Notable successes are the ED prediction project, forecasting (time series) of patients on a 62 day cancer pathway, segmentation using clustering of the acuity of patient cohorts, spatial analysis of crime hot spots and using Kernel Density Estimation to produce heat maps and predictions. As well as lots and lots of regression.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading and watching the occasional film, or several.
