Researchers at 36 different sites were able to get together and run a common protocol testing 13 different effects. The results are useful to the science of psychology from which the effects are described. The interesting thing about the study for psychologists are the effect sizes. All of the effects are well known. Some have […]
I try to avoid controversial subjects here as much as possible. While I have opinions – so does everyone else. However, I wanted to bring up an important science set of questions asked by people who believe in creationism of people who believe in evolution. I think it’s instructive to understand where the root differences […]
There is an interesting chicken and egg issue with data scientists; which came first the statistician or the programmer? See, no one is just born a data scientist. They find themselves in this position mainly out of circumstances where their work forces them to adopt two different disciplines: statistics and programming. They are very different […]
Here is a great article I found at Data Science Central today. I’m going through my own algorithms looking for ways of improving them. A big part of my work is measuring them careful at how accurate they are and then applying tweeks to various parts of them. In many ways I am opening them […]
When I look back over 2013 I see a lot of things were accomplished at Cicayda. Professionally this has been one of my best years. There is still a lot to accomplish in 2014 as well and some things this year did not work out so well, but I’m focusing on the positive. Everything else […]
Nectarine Imp is Peter Mancini. That's me. It has been said I go from conversational to esoteric in about 30 seconds. That makes me a bit opaque at times. However once I know you are lost I can use one of my strengths which is to make technically hard issues intelligible.
As a technologist I am always looking to solve problems from the experience of the person facing them.I will bring my understanding of what technology brings to bear given the nature of any problem or difficult workflow experience. I will figure out how technology can improve that process.
I've spent years working with both civilian and government to help them solve big data problems. Finding the so-called pain points and working to ease them has great benefit for nearly any organization. Let me help you take advantage of the new revolution in analytical tools.
I am also the inventor of Dynamic Sentiment Understanding, a new way of looking at sentiment in language. This technology differs vastly from what is currently in the market today. It takes the conversation and divides it up by groups. It looks at the conversations the groups are having on topics and discovers the distance between them. There is no reliance on determining an artificial and arbitrary sentiment score of a particular word, or document. It looks for effective sentiment. Contact me for more details.
Current projects: Working on eDiscovery for Early Case Analysis at Cicayda. The legal field is encountering #BigData issues and needs #NLproc help. There are several solutions out there already. My take falls in line with my theories that enhancing analysts is better than creating autonomous systems. Existing legal workflow forms the framework on which natural language processing is added to assist the analyst in the work they are doing without adding additional work or getting in the way.
