SmartAd: Measuring advertising campaigns efficacy

MARKET NEED One of the major questions in the advertising space is how to determine which advertising initiatives have been successful and which have not. This age-old question in advertising gave rise to the famous John Wanamaker quote: “Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is, I don’t know which half.” Today, advertising runs through various channels such as television, radio, print, web and social media. Each of these has different characteristics in terms of form, audience and data about customers interaction with the advertisements. We know that channels and campaigns interact: A customer that

Data Stream Clustering: A high-throughput, continuous data clustering solution

Market NeedHigh volume, high throughput data streams are common in many industries including financial services (transaction streams), communications (instant messaging, SMS, micro – blogging), web and gaming (action and event streams) and production line environments (machine generated data). The ability to analyse and gain insights from this type of data as events happen, in real – time, can be hugely beneficial . Traditionally data analytics is performed as an off – line, batch process where the results are available hours or even days after the data was produced . This means that any actions taken based on these insights will

Summit: Summarising processes using structured and unstructured data

Process summarisation techniques generate overviews of the current state of a business process to enable evaluation of progress to date and to aid future planning.An overview of any process essentially reduces to answering the following key questions:What is the actual status of each process?What are the recent changes?Is there a problem looming up?While current issue trackers already provide an impressive amount of structured information on the status of issues, there is a substantial amount of free text provided by users and administrators in these systems that, up to now, has not been widely exploited for summarisation. The analysis and integration

TopicListener: Tracking key topics from multi-channel speech audio streams

Market Need There is a large quantity of information communicated through speech audio streams (phone calls, broadcasts, commentary etc.) across many industries. In many instances this information is of potentially high value but is discarded for lack of efficient and accurate information retrieval strategies. Speech recognition technologies partially solve this problem but the output texts are still high volume, noisy and difficult to interpret and summarize Technology Solution TopicListener integrates the power of automatic speech recognition and text based topic modeling technologies Focuses on the most salient topics, events and issues Topic tracking can work in an incremental way

TimeSeriesClustering: A comparison tool for time series clustering techniques

MARKET NEEDClustering time series data can be used across many different industries for tasks such as identifying common behaviours, detecting outliers, and discovering groupings based on similar patterns.A common challenge in time series clustering is that there are many different clustering algorithms and data representations that all produce different ‘valid’ cluster assignments. It is often hard to determine which clustering approach is best for a particular objective.Running multiple clustering techniques over the same time series data and being able to compare their outputs in an intuitive way is not directly supported by many tools currently on the market.TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONIn order

SmartSearch: Search and retrieval of information using semantic reasoning

MARKET NEED In many companies, the search and retrieval of information matching certain criteria is a key part of the business process. If we take, for example, those companies that work with many different services or products, the task of searching through product or service queries can be a key part of their data analysis or customer care processes. Typically employees will have to query internal knowledge bases or consult with external sources of information to gather sufficient knowledge to solve domain specific tasks. At present, a typical keyword-based search will not retrieve the wealth or depth of information

ModelVis: Regression Model visualisation

MARKET NEED Data analysis is an increasingly important task for industry; one they must typically perform before making a business decision. Linear and logistic regression are commonly used as predictive data analytic models. The key characteristics of a regression model are: the regression weights, also known as regression coefficients, regression estimates or parameter estimates, the sign of each weight, a statistical significance associated with each weight. These characteristics are associated with the model’s features and interaction features (i.e. interaction terms or combined features for the purposes of regression). ModelVis is a regression model visualisation system that provides an intuitive understanding of how these three

OntoCore: Semi-autonomously created ontologies based on Linked Open Data

Unstructured and semi-structured data within an enterprise can be many folds larger than structured data. But this data is often difficult to leverage to new business opportunities due to a lack of domain models for the data. Figure 1. Untamed Assets: Unstructured and Semi-Structured Data Identifying concepts held in existing data and the relationship between these concepts is a crucial step in opening up new product potential from existing data. The OntoCore Project helps to achieve this goal.
