Github like power for Data Scientists

In what this article calls the Data Scientist Arms Race, there is a new tool for us to use to help keep the workflow with multiple data scientists smooth and efficient – a repository of processed data. It is an interesting idea, for the most part. Part of the hype stems from the traditional workflow […]

Galactic Spin Directly Measured

This is really neat. Astronomers, using the Hubble Space Telescope have managed to observer the movement of individual stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud, the galaxy closest to ours (and according to the article, it is in orbit about us, which I didn’t know!) From our vantage point the mass of stars is rotating clockwise. […]


Technology Assisted Review in Litigation

One real benefit of working at cicayda besides the great location, swanky offices and a top notch development team, is the fact that the company is run by Roe Frazer, one of the most colorful people you will ever meet. That is a benefit because he not only understands the impact the technology we are […]


New Physics Findings Propel New Directions

This Article is an excellent one, not just about the recent confirmation of an Inflation Theory of the Big Bang, but also in how science works. There were many competing theories connected to gravitational waves. The findings by the BICEP2 astronomy team did not hand a WIN to Professor Linde and a defeat to everyone […]


Working on False Positive Paradox paper

This week I am working on a paper on the False Positive Paradox that covers false positives in a general discussion but also the paradox condition where in some situations a false positive is more likely than a true positive. I’m using examples from medicine and the mystery of Malaysian Airlines MH370 to show issues […]

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.
