Cicayda Rebuts Google’s Winning eDiscovery Wars

I am co-author on this article: The basic premise of the original argument is that Google’s technology has already won the eDiscovery wars. The company whose analytics I’ve helped author refutes this notion strongly. I only added theoretical ideas the the paper. The writing is all Roe Frazer’s. He’s a fantastic writer I wish I […]

Data Science and Cyber Security

There is a growing threat in the criminal world that began to become a problem after the turn of the 21st Century. The threat is cyberattacks from criminal elements seeking to take control of computers, accounts, and ultimately your money, freedom, and peace. It starts at the ground level where millions of simple websites exist. […]

Amazon Echo, obvious IoT entry point

I have had my Echo for a week now. It is a device to bring computing as a virtual presence. It isn’t a toy. Its no a proof of concept, either. It’s the real deal. A similar experience many people already have is with Siri and Google Now. I’ve used both. I’ve used them along […]

Interactive Data Visualization, Free online

This looks like a really decent book. At the price it is worth at least browsing. If you really like it you can purchase the ebook version of it as well. Interactive Data Visualization I like presenting free material like this. There are a lot of people looking for intellectual self improvement who are without […]

Ethics of Artificial Intelligence in the Legal Field

My latest public paper is about the current debate about Artificial Intelligence and the issues of risk, ethics, and values. I started thinking about this subject last March and made some progress on the concept over the summer. Then the big AI debate exploded with Elon Musk’s now-deleted slide about the dangers of AI. I […]

About Nectarine Imp

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.
