There’s a lot of buzz around BI semantics and until recently quite a few analysts have been caught into the world of data definitions and Cubes. For obvious reasons: the current state of BI is hard to use and has required companies to scale up on report writers and other personnel with technical-to-business “translation” skills. This swath of infrastructure is responsible for getting still-pretty-raw data from enterprise systems into the hands (and more preferably the brains) of managers and…Continue

I was checking the IRS forms you have to fill in Massachusetts. Everybody has to fill out a 3-page tax form, a 3-page form to prove your health care compliance status, and one additional page to compute your health care tax penalty if needed.
For 85% of the state residents, it's probably not too complicated. Just a painful homework you need to do each year. Yet for some self-employed, under-insured, uninsured, part-time workers, and people filing jointly, it gets much more complicated…Continue
The national unemployment rate is 9.1 percent, up nearly four points from the first quarter of 2008. Recent news has not been optimistic. In August, for the first time since 1945, the federal government reported a national net job change of zero. Meanwhile, the global economy sputters

The problem started in US in 2008. Historically, people have been used to get a degree (for which they pay $$$), then contact employers or recruiters, and then get a job. This has changed for good, and based on Western countries that have experienced a 10% unemployment rate for 40 years in a row, here's the problem and solution:

1.8 Zettabytes, or to put it another way, 31 billion fully loaded (64gb) iPad’s – an incomprehensible amount of data that represents the estimated size of our digital universe today. To give this a little more perspective, it has been estimated that if we stored all the words ever spoken since the dawn of time, by every human, we’d need 0.0048 of a Zettabyte - just a smidgen of what we’ve already created to date.
You’re probably getting the message. Data is big, abundant and no doubt…Continue

Radar detector company Escort invented a new technique to help drivers avoid police traps, based on data mining and crowd sourcing.

It will be interesting to see how highway patrols and local police respond to being…Continue

Although I use both R and RapidMiner in my work, I have been “late to the party” in installing RapidMiner’s R extension on my Windows machine. The primary reason being that over time I have built a regular workflow that uses these two tools separately. Also, I am one of those folks who don’t go looking for trouble. After reading several postings on how after installing the extension users couldn’t get RapidMiner started again, I figured I should let this integration fad pass or at least wait…Continue
