Content Analytics Tools for Power Users

You read Race Against the Machines, now do something about it.

As we developed a Nathan based application for eDiscovery and put it in front of customers, they found uses for it in market analysis, research, marketin research, social media, recruiting, knowledge management, recommendation engines and strategic planning.  Even customers originally looking at the Nathan API for development, asked if they could buy the demo tools.

We learned that users need text analytics tools that allow them to build content analysis into BI dashboards and reports.  So we’re adding the BrainBrowser and BrainView applications to BrainDocs to create the Analysts Toolbox, putting it in the cloud and building integration with big data sources, databases and your favorite BI tools like Tableau and Qlik.

The first release of the Analyst Toolbox will have BrainBrowser, Free, Plus and Premium features, register below.

The Analyst Toolbox

Over the past three years, ai-one engineers have developed reference designs for demonstration, proof of concept and testing.  These applications are used to demonstrate the value proposition of ai-one’s core (Nathan) and show developers how the core can be used with other technologies such as NLP to solve language problems.  The three applications used by the ai-one sales team are BrainView, BrainBrowser and BrainDocs.

As a result of demand from ai-one customers and prospects, we are merging these applications into one browser based user interface and moving them to a cloud architecture with the new Nathan API.  This so we can offer them to end users that do not have the time or resources to develop their own.

The three applications included in the ai-one Analyst Toolbox are:

    • BrainBrowser – enables users to analyze a document (or any piece of textual content) and “find something like this”
    • BrainDocs – uses personal intelligent agents for finding, filtering, classifying and organizing content by concept “idea”
    • BrainView – create “brains” from content (think documents, user comments and review notes) to explore patterns and sentiment visually

ai-BrainDocs AgentHow will our intelligent agents make your life easier?

Problem: You are looking for a particular idea (or concept) that could be worded in a variety of ways and buried among thousands of pages of content. Although you may know a few keywords, or tags, to help search for documents; you still end up reading through dozens (if not hundreds) of irrelevant documents trying locate that needle in the haystack.  You need your own AI, your own agent to do this for you.

Solution: Absolutely state of the art, all of the agents in the ai-one Analyst Toolbox are based on the Nathan API, ai-one’s core technology for language applications.  Nathan is a new form of biologically inspired neural computing that processes information in the same way as the brain.  Unlike other approaches, our API enables machines to learn with or without human supervision. Our technology automatically generates a lightweight ontology (LWO) that detects all relationships among data elements. Learning occurs at the time data is ingested — so it is very fast compared to other approaches. The features of the Nathan API are as follows:

    • Self-optimized information processing
    • Multiple higher-order concept formation (multiple high order co-occurrence)
    • Autonomic learning via multiple context recognition (unsupervised machine learning)
    • Language independent (works at byte level)

The Analyst Toolbox leverages this core technology using both static and dynamic fingerprint techniques to deliver a set of tools for the analyst working with free text or unstructured data to classify, organize, filter, search and explore in ways not possible with keyword search, natural language processing (NLP), Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) or other statistical/mathematical tools. Furthermore, the extraction of concepts expressed in documents into a fingerprint graph enables experts with programs such as SPSS, R and Tableau to include unstructured data in their analytics and visualizations, not possible before now.

The “intelligent agents” that are deployed in the Analyst Toolbox are trained by you (“find me something like this”) and the list of relevant results are returned in ranked order for the user to review and mark as relevant or not relevant. This process saves hours (=$$$) of review time – a tremendous value proposition to analysts confronted with ever increasing quantities of information to process.
