OPTIMIZING DATA ACQUISITION

Posted by Iulius on Sep 12, 2016 10:00:00 AM

It's intuitive that if you take the topics you know the least and you learn those, you'll get a better test score. However, when we switch this idea to mathematical function optimization in a very large hyper dimensional space (also known as Machine Learning), things tend to not go by our intuition anymore. Thus, we better test the assumption.

The thing with hyper-dimensionality is that everything changes a lot in a way we can't naturally picture. Our imagination goes up to, say, four dimensions (e.g. 3D heat map, where the fourth dimension is the color), maybe even 5 or 6D if we specifically train our brain for that. We could add sound to that graph or other crazy ideas, but the brain needs time to acquire the intuition for that "dimension". So, there's no way for us to imagine a 10.000D space and everything that it entails.

When you have a long document and there's no intern around to assist you with the tedious task of identifying specific clauses and you don't know where to start, that's the moment when you most feel the need for some automation in the process.

After all, it's the age where they automatically read your car's plate to send you a speeding ticket. Why do you still have to manually annotate text documents?!

The Startup Journey

Posted by Iulius on Jun 19, 2015 1:00:00 PM

The Micosoft Ventures startup accelerator. It's a journey, but you don't start from scratch. We all came here with well defined goals and plans on how to achieve them. And that's by design, since it's an admission criteria. We are not here to be taught how to do the job, we're here to prove we deserve to have a faster growth and that external help would be well invested in us.
