AI - From Silo to Ecosystem

I sometimes reflect on how we will reach this stage of AI called AGI (Artificial General Intelligence) which is defined by a state of AI that by some measure equivalents the human condition. Scientists in the field sometimes call this the singularity, or the point where AI will develop much faster and at larger scale than ourselves. This is of course still a hypothetical state and many out there are in the very process of proving it either wrong or right - so I am not going there in this…

Context Matters When Text Mining

Context Matters When Text Mining

Many times the most followed approach can result in failure.  The reason has more to do with thinking that one approach works in all cases.  This is specially true in text mining.  For instance, a common approach in clustering documents is to create tf-idf matrix for all documents, use SVD or other dimension reduction algorithm and then use a clustering.  In most cases, this will work; However, as I will present here,  there are instances…

Embodiment from Codified Narrative

For a number of months, I have been generating codified narrative from films, fairytales, paintings, court cases, and news events. Codified narrative might be described as a tokenized rendition of the underlying content. There are many ways to do a rendering. Imagine asking 100,000 people to write a story based on the same general details such as scenery, major events, and specific outcomes. To the extent there are commonalities in the resulting storylines, I would say that "social…

The Future is What Happens When People Embrace Open Data

Open data is a thing, an idea, and an ideal. Open data is one of those "superhero words" alongside its cousins the Cloud and Big Data. I like to call them superhero words because they are supernatural forces that seemingly defy definition and can't be seen. Yet…

Sensitivity Mapping of Document Databases

I rarely get to use a walkie-talkie during a course in school. As the snapshot of my desktop shows on the image below, I had both a multi-line telephone and portable radio. Just before the exam, I participated in a simulation. Our tabletop exercise contained an emergency scenario: a train derailment involving the evacuation of residents. I served as the Social Services Director. Although I didn't choose this role for myself, I thought it made sense given my graduate degree in the area of…

History, Music, and the Depth of Data

Like many students about to finish their undergraduate degree, I decided to artificially inflate my grades by taking some "bird courses." These are not courses about birds. Other students assured me that the courses were designed to bolster my marks and to help me complete my program requirements. Considering the many bird courses available, I decided to take introductory music, which was essentially a history course focused on music. It required a lot of…
