Evaluating off the shelf analytics products:
In last 3-4 years, there has been an explosion of cloud based machine learning powered APIs for image and text analysis (over 30 providers) as well as pretrained/default models such as H2o.ai apart from traditional desktop products such as KNIME, RapidMiner, SPSS etc.
All of these were trained on different types of datasets, and some may work quite well for your needs. Instead of letting your in-house team identify the best one by trial and error and spending both time and money, rely on our experience and let us help you find the best option quickly.
We can help you scope your requirements and based on your end use, we can quantitatively identify the best off the shelf products within your set budget. Even though we also sell text analytics APIs, in case our competitor APIs work better in your case than we will not hesitate to recommend it.
Data Annotation and Model Development:
Publicly available text analytics and image recognition AI models are usually trained on corpuses such as wikipedia, news articles etc. and will have very high predictive ability only if that data is somewhat similar to what you use in your business area.
Quite frequently, documents from domain areas such as finance, law, healthcare and pharma industry perform poorly on pretrained models. This could be quickly fixed by hiring us to label/annotate a dataset representative of your use case. We will use it to custom models using state of the art approaches and integrate that with Specrom Text Analytics Platform.
Data Analytics Integrations:
Advanced machine learning models are useless if not integrated tightly with your business’s existing workflow. We have worked on wide type of integrations such as:
- Analyze any text data stored in columns in microsoft excel, libreoffice and google sheets.
- Integrating with apps such as dropbox and slack through zapier so that whenever a team member of our client uploaded into a dropbox, it triggered our text analytics APIs and results were pushed to a dedicated slack channel.
- Integrating our APIs into Elastic or within data processing pipelines in Knime.
Education and Training
We offer training workshops of varying durations (10-100 hours instructions) in specific focus areas:
Machine Learning: Classification and regression (linear, logistic, support vector machine, random forest), deep learning (convolutional neural network (CNN/ConvNet), recurrent neural networks (simple RNNs, LSTMs), cluster analysis, feature engineering. Analyzing unstructured data using Natural-language processing (content and knowledge based recommender systems).
Statistical Methods: hypothesis testing (ANOVA, t-test) and confidence intervals, correlation (bivariate, partial, distances), time series, principal component analysis and dimensionality reduction.
Software toolkits: Python (scikit-learn, keras, pandas, matplotlib, numpy, scipy, NLTK, spaCy), R (shiny, knitr, ggplot2, tidyverse, caret), SQL (MySQL, SQLite, MongoDB), Apache Spark (MLLib), Apache Hadoop, Weka, Eclipse RCP/Java, KNIME.
