Qualitative data analysis
intrigues me. Mining the internet
and the deepnet
for intelligence on critical issues is the holy grail of competitive intelligence, and other forms of intelligence analysis. Traditionally, an intelligence analyst (humint
) is required for serious research. Semantic web architecture
appears to be developing methods to unify information, enabling advanced analytical concepts along with social networking and distributed computing
to do the heavy lifting for us (humans). Wow, we've created a web-corpus containing records of everything known (and unknown) - and just need a little help from AI and linguistics to make something unpredictable happen.
