Boston, Ma (PRWEB) August 07, 2013
Take a taxonomist from the Johnson Space Center, the President of Educational Analytics and Logistics and Andrew Fast of Elder Research. Mix them together with a host of other CTOs, CEOs VPs and analytics experts at Text Analytics World (TAW) Boston (September 30 – October 1, 2013). Then stand back and watch the information fly.
Due to popular demand, the most comprehensive text analytics conference in the country is returning to Beantown. As a special bonus, attendees who register before August 9 can save up to $400 off on-site prices.
This year, the action-packed agenda is focused on uncovering the newest text analytics approaches and techniques – the ones that are proving to have a significant effect on the digital landscape.
From education and health to traffic patterns and finance, attendees will also have the chance to explore the latest industry applications with the help of TAW’s exciting speakers.
Highlights of this practical conference include:
Analysts who are plagued by poor quality data sets (e.g. social media posts and user-created product info) won’t want to miss this talk by Lars Hard, CTO of Expertmaker. Using a combination of classifiers, extractors and predictive models, Hard will show attendees how to turn soft data into strong results.
Used for threat scoring at The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, to disrupt drug trafficking at JAITF and for automated ECG diagnoses, Saffron Associate Memory is a cognitive computing platform that has set itself up in direct competition with IBM Watson.
Scattered through piles of healthcare documents are important semantic clues to a patient’s illness. Sergei Ananyan, CEO of Megaputer Intelligence, will explain how new techniques in text mining automation are enabling healthcare professionals to solve the mystery (and enhance quality of care).
After absorbing all the tips and tricks from these “how-to” demonstrations, expert panels and real-world case studies, attendees can sit back and relax at TAW’s relaxed social meals and evening networking reception.
Practitioners seeking tools to analyze unstructured text data also won’t want to miss the post-conference workshop, Making Text Mining Work: Practical Methods and Solutions. In this comprehensive one-day session, Dr. Andrew Fast of Elder Research will share a wealth of practical experience on text mining best practices.
