Elementary Algorithms free eBook published

Xinyu Liu, aka Larry, has just completed a book on Elementary Algorithms he has been working on for 6 years. It is pretty good, as far into it as I have read. I think it needs wider distribution since it’s free and he needs word of mouth to get exposure. It’s a generous gift he […]

The Anti-Index

The hardest thing I’ve worked on at cicayda is probably the most important tool a lawyer could have. To put it in the most simple terms it is the anti-index. It’s the opposite of what information science spent 60 years developing. An index takes a concept keyword and finds documents that contain it. An anti-index […]

Cicayda makes Red Herring’s 2014 Top 100 list

Red Herring is an independent group that goes through an extensive selection process to build a list of the top non-public technology or life science companies. We competed […]

Why you should come to Nashville

I’ve been in Nashville since mid-2001 and I have no desire to leave. Nashville is a great place to work and live for so many reasons. There is a blog that exists to lure Information Technology career minded people to Nashville but many of the things on it I think would be a lure for […]

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.
