Entity Extraction from Websites to MongoDB

I have an immediate need to extract company, people, and event entities from different websites (including news websites) and populate the results into my MongoDB. Digital Reasoning's tool Synthesys (http://www.digitalreasoning.com/uncommon-technology) seems to do what I need; however, I need someone who can set everything up for me or recommend something better.

1. Recommend an existing open source or commercial tool to extract and resolve company and people entities using only the already built-in fields for those objects (eg. addresses, name, etc.).  No customization required.  Open source preferred (to run on my server) but not required. 
2. Install the tool (if necessary) / turn it on.
3. Add a few destination URLs and RSS feeds
4. Send the output to my MongoDB instance

My developer will help with whatever setup is necessary on our servers.

Big Data Architecture for a Smart City in Ecuador

The Ecuadorian government is building a Smart City—a “City of Knowledge”—in a high profile development project. The project’s mission is to integrate scientific, academic and economic activity, encourage research, transfer of technology and innovation to help change the country's productive matrix. The vision is to connect the city using the paradigm of pervasive computing, calm technology, and Internet of Things. This is essentially a project that relies heavily on big data. We are looking for a data expert on Experfy to design and architect a systems architecture to support all of the data that will be generated from multiple sources. The expert will rely on the city’s Master Plan that defines the basic guidelines for the construction a planned city, designed for human interaction that in harmony with nature, and promotes generation of knowledge.

This is a three-week project that requires a full-time commitment on the ground in Ecuador, talking to stakeholders and putting together an actionable systems architecture. We will pay for your airfare, and hotel expense. In the end of three weeks, for the deliverable, we seek a comprehensive written report with systems architecture to support the project. The architect should have sufficient familiarity with different vendors (IBM, Oracle, Hortonworks, etc.) and systems (Hadoop, NoSQL, etc.) to recommend a state-of-the-art systems architecture. The project architect will perform the following functions:

  1. Perform analysis of the current state of the information;
  2. Define the different systems that are needed, roles and users;
  3. Design of the platform to support the envisioned smart services.
  4. Provide a written report with systems architecture for the big data system.

The end-users of the systems that we are designing are: The smart city administrative staff, teachers, students and visitors. In your proposal, please provide your approach to this project. Please help us understand your background and the expertise you think is particularly relevant here. If you have worked on a similar project that involved large-scale design, it would be relevant to include those details in your proposal. We are looking for excellent communication skills in English. While knowledge of Spanish is not a requirement, it certainly would be an asset.

Churn Probability algorithm needed based on historical data

Baremetrics provides revenue-based financial metrics for startups (MRR, LTV, ARR, churn, etc).

We're working on a "Churn Probability" number to provide to our customers where we'd like to, as accurately as possible, give a % probability that a given customer of theirs will churn.

We have historical data for all of this, so my assumption is we'll need to use that data to develop an algorithm that can be tweaked based on when users have actually churned in the past.

This project happens to be in Ruby, so familiarity with that is a plus, but utlimately the dataset can be given to you in any format.

Big Data Hub Design & Set-up

Hi there!

We are a leading company of the online travel industry, and are looking for an expert in Big Data to drive our Big Data stream of our overall Data Strategy program.

Our main objective is finding the right technical solution & architecture for a Big Data Lake that best fits our technological ecosystem.

The main elements that will feed the Lake are our operational system (an Oracle based custom built system) as well as an XML system that basically feeds via log files. Both will be, initially, our main Big Data streams and what we want to exploit as first use cases.

Obviously the program will evolve past this sources to incorporate into the Big Data Lake databases that our customers share with us, market information, competitor benchmarks, social, etc.

We are looking for someone with a strong history around Big Data Architecture but also with some knowledge of Big Data as part of an In Memory Analytics landscape.

Awareness of potential use cases in Big Data Analytics arena that can be future elements of the overall program.

The process has already started and we're in early Exploration Phase, discussing with potential vendors, understanding available technology and best fit for our Technology Ecosystem.

We expect the expert to lead the way in this process to have the Architecture defined after reviewing our current ecosystem and our strategic plans.

Deadline is 15th of September, and we expect to have the Architecture defined as well as an initial proof of concept deployed to shed some insight on the final blueprint.

Advertising Effectiveness

We are in the process of creating an evolved advertising agency and are approaching things differently than most agencies today.  Our belief is that the world is changing at a more rapid pace than ever before.  Technological advancements are dramatically changing the way people consume and engage with media at an alarming pace, but most agencies and brands are advertising to people in the same way. They are interrupting the content people are watching, playing, reading, using with ad messages - witty commercials that tell people what the brands want them to hear.  

Our theory is that brands need to do more than interrupt great content. People are also much savvier and less and less likely to believe a simple ad message.  We feel that in order to prove value and establish true loyalty, brands need to do more to define themselves instead of just tell people things.  For example if say Clorox did and ad saying Clorox stands for clean and germ free and ran it on TV, online, print, etc it would be less effective than if they took their dollars and did something real like cleaned up 10 subway stations/cars, parks, etc under the banner of standing for clean. In other words, doing things that are representative of a brands positioning (that are social/pr worthy) vs traditional ad messaging.

In addition, because of technology and ad skipping behavior/programming, DVR, Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, etc people are viewing advertising less and less.  Brands need to do things that are worthy of people's time.  Things that are story/article/short video view-worthy instead of ads.

Without having a specific case study to use as an example, we'd like to should how money that could be used for doing useful things that help position brands the way they'd like to be positioned is more effective and a better use of marketing dollars.

We could certainly write a thought leadership piece on this point of view, but would rather put some teeth into it with some data, research, proof, stats to help prove the point.  Maybe that's just someone looking and gathering the right supporting data and stats or creating them ourselves. 

Here are some supporting stats/quotes:

Harvard Business Review. August 9, 2012 "Traditional marketing — including advertising, public relations, branding and corporate communications — is dead. 
Many people in traditional marketing roles and organizations may not realize they’re operating within a dead paradigm. But they are. The evidence is clear."

Forbes CMO Network. December 4, 2013

"It is an industry that is a few short years away from crashing on itself. 

It is boxing – very shortly a mixed martial arts model is going to come along and, like boxing, ad agencies will largely become irrelevant."

USA Today - 48% of home have DVRs

YouTube - On Average 70% of viewers skip pre-roll ads when given the option

Ericsson Labs - when TV viewers around the word were asked about the important service option for future TV, an ad-free experience was most popular

Havas Media - Worldwide, consumer said they would care if 72% of all brands disappeared 

Potential data sources: Existing studies, Twitter data, Facebook data, Web Forums, etc

Data geography and timeline: Ideally, this would be based on recent data (2012 - today) and US (but not limited to US)

Deliverables: We are open to suggestions, but some kind of report that we can leverage and develop thought leadership pieces from.

Note: We are open to partnering with a research company to publish a report in order to add credibility to the findings.
