  • Our regular version of our newsletter is published once a month. Occasionally, we also send announcements, no more than twice a month. These announcements are commercial in nature, and are of general interest to all our readers: new data mining conferences, books, training, webinars, etc. We are very careful in selecting relevant, high quality ads from respected vendors. Theses ads help finance the relatively high cost of producing and emailing the newsletter.

    In the future, some of these announcements will be internal, to mention important new features of our data mining competition, our analytics certification program, or of other relevant services that we might further develop, such as our think tank, a cobranded API-based analytics scoring server, or our white paper repository.

    From now on, the subject line for these special editions with start with AnalyticBridge Announcement, followed by a short description. Internal announcements will focus on products or services that do not cost money to end-users.
