Recently, I have been thinking about how search can play more of a part in discovery and exploration with SAS Text Miner. Unsupervised text discovery usually begins with a look at the frequent or highly weighted terms in the collection, perhaps includes some edits to the synonym and stop lists, […]
Big data is here to stay, whether we like it or not. Regardless of how you feel about it, it can help solve problems which simply could not be addressed without big data and advanced analytics. One area in which big data and analytics can provide huge benefits is the medical arena. In a recent […]
It’s me again!! We're at the halfway point of meeting our Strata + Hadoop World dream team. So far, you’ve met machine learning guru Patrick Hall; data management expert Clark Bradley; and advanced analytics specialist Rachel Hawley. Next up … Dan Zaratsian! I met Dan a few years back while preparing for Analytics 2013 […]
When I ask people what they know about Denmark they often mention Hans Christian Andersen. He was born in Denmark in 1805 and is one of the most adored children’s authors of all time. Many of his fairy tales are known worldwide as they have been translated into more than […]

Machine learning is all about automating the development process for analytical models. One way to extend the use of machine learning is to broaden your library of machine learning algorithms. Another way is to scale your machine learning process by reducing the time required to process machine learning algorithms on […]
As technology and analytics continue to evolve, we're seeing new opportunities not only in the way that we analyze data, but also in deployment options. More specifically, real-time deployment of analytical algorithms that enable organizations to detect and respond to security threats, offer timely incentives to customers, and mitigate risk by detecting compliance […]

Double negatives seem to be everywhere, I have noticed them a lot in music recently. Since Pink Floyd sang "We don't need no education", to Rihanna's "I wasn’t looking for nobody when you looked my way". My own favourite song with a double negative is "I can't get no sleep" - Faithless. This […]
A while ago, I started this series on natural language processing (NLP), and discussed some of the challenges of computers interpreting meaning in human language based on strings of characters. I also mentioned that today’s NLP systems can do some amazing things, including enabling the transformation of unstructured data into […]
