I haven’t posted in ages. Mainly the reason is my current work at Cicayda entered proprietary ground. I can say that I am doing more adjustments to the Waveform Classifier and will have some findings to report there. My other recent work has been helping look at a traffic model and and fighting off hackers […]
There is the odd and perplexing problem we all face, sometimes daily – what name to give to something. The perplexity comes when that thing blurs normal boundaries and is neither fish nor foul. Today on the Interwebs we have various folks wondering if Data Scientists isn’t just a souped up name for statistician or […]
First, let’s start with a joke: Three golfers are at the golf club, looking for a fourth for an afternoon tee time. A man overhears their conversation and says, “Well, if you want an interesting game, I don’t play, but I have a trained gorilla who does.” The golfers decide what the hey, and agree. […]
My principle work on the Gaussian Bayes Classifier (aka Waveform Classifier) is done. Now I am tooling it into a proper API and working with a #Clojure expert to improve it’s performance. I am so happy. It’s been a tough three weeks of coding to get from concept to working code. Mainly the issue is […]
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.
