MIT researchers unique computer system for replacing human intuition in Big Data Analysis

CREDIT: sabusinessindex.co.za Search for suppressed patterns that have some kind of predictive power is at the root of Big Data Analysis.  But, identifying the ‘features’ contained in the data that needs further examination usually calls for some amount of human intuition. If we consider, for instance, a database with say, the start and end dates of various sales promotions along with the weekly profits, the dates may not constitute the vital information nor the areas that were covered or the profits. What would be important, however, is the profit and the average from the spans. The focus of the MIT researchers to eliminate the human intuition aspect from big data analysis using an innovative approach that would hunt not just for patterns, but also design the feature set.  The first…
