Unstructured Data Miners Chase Silver with Deep Learning

(Paul-Fleet/Shutterstock) The traditional approach to mining unstructured data typically involves training machine learning models upon high-quality “gold standard” data that’s been meticulously groomed. But thanks to innovations in deep learning, more insight may be extracted at less cost by training upon larger amounts of raw data, or what’s being called “silver standard” data. This is the approach advocated by indico, a Boston startup that’s looking to make a mark in the burgeoning world of deep learning. The company is leveraging deep learning models running atop a combination of CPUs and GPUs to help customers in financial services and marketing to analyze large amounts of unstructured data, primarily text and images. There’s a tremendous amount of value hidden in unstructured data, including social media posts, news stories, legal documents, and other…
