I attended a screening of Most Likely to Succeed this past Tuesday at a local high school. I left the film indifferent. I wasn’t inspired by the film, but I didn’t hate it either. The main idea for the film is how education is outdated and shows a school called High Tech High which is trying […]
Congratulations to Thomas Rust who won the drawing for the sleep survey I have been conducting over the past two weeks. Feel free to continue to post responses to the survey. If I receive enough responses, I might consider doing another drawing. Thanks to all those that participated.
Hi everyone, My youngest son has been sick this past week so my wife and I have not gotten much sleep. Consequently I have not been able to put in the time necessary to get out a good blog post. I still want to test the capabilities of the in place database capabilities of STATISTICA […]
In the last post I presented my findings of the time to load the mortgage data set into memory. Remember the task was possible with STATISTICA but failed with Rapid Miner.

The technical indicators of interest for this project were RSI, Bollinger Bands, Stochastics, and MACD. I won’t define these technical indicator terms here. I used these […]
Hey, everyone. Just got back from an extended vacation. Sorry for the delay in getting my latest blog post out. I want to explore how STATISTICA can be used for automated trading recommendations. Some of the leg work has been done with collecting stock quote data using YQL which was covered in the last post. […]
Sorry. I intended to get a quick follow-up post this week, but things haven’t worked out. I promise a great post next Monday. 🙂 One question I wanted to pose in the meantime: Is anyone interested in text mining a RSS feed? Let me know and I can get this on my schedule.
