U.S. Government Using Social Media For Counter-Intelligence

The U.S. government is using social media technologies to reach out to the world, to start a dialogue, to influence foreign policy and to change the perception of the United Stated with the rest of the world.

Iterative Algorithm for Linear Regression

I am trying to solve the regression Y=AX where Y is the response, X the input, and A the regression coefficients. I came up with the following iterative algorithm:

Ak+1 = cYU + Ak (I-cXU),


where:



  • c is an arbitrary constant
  • U is an arbitrary matrix such that YU has same dimension as A. For instance U = transposed(X)…

Data Mining Combined With Predictive Modeling Equal 3D Data Visualization

The interaction and cooperation between computers and the human brain is at a crossroad. There are some who believe that decision support systems should be completely automated. There are others who believe that there are many areas of business, technology, and science that have not been discovered yet, and, hence, only part of a decision support system can be automated. I subscribe to the latter proposition.



Computer science is, at its core, an attempt to replicate the processing,… Continue

Scorecards: Logistic, Ridge and Logic Regression

In the context of credit scoring, one tries to develop a predictive model using a regression formula such as Y = Σ wi Ri, where Y is the logarithm of odds ratio (fraud vs. non fraud). In a different but related framework, we are dealing with a logistic regression where Y is binary, e.g. Y = 1 means fraudulent transaction, Y = 0…

AT&T Invents Programming Language for Mass Surveillance

From the company that brought you the C programming language comes Hancock, a C variant developed by AT&T researchers to mine gigabytes of the company's telephone and internet records for surveillance purposes.



An AT&T research paper published in 2001 and unearthed today by Andrew Appel at Freedom to Tinker shows how the phone company uses Hancock-coded software to crunch through tens of millions of long distance phone records a night to draw up what AT&T calls… Continue

Interview with Edmund Freeman, V.P. of Direct Marketing Modeling for Washington Mutual

Bio



I was born in Michigan in 1961, went to the University of Michigan for my bachelors, and then post-graduate studies in pure mathematics at Wisconsin and Illinois. I finally got tired of working on topics that I couldn't talk to even my office mates about, so I got out with a MS in statistics. My first real job was fraud analysis for Medicare. I spent most of the 90's working for a bleeding-edge data mining firm called NeoVista and later Accrue. This century I've worked in health… Continue
