Using Data Analysis To Design Better Photos

Better cameras don’t necessarily take photos that people think are better. The visual image criteria that customers respond favorably to is an ongoing area of interest to me. I routinely use knowledge gained through A/B testing of images to achieve competitive advantage by producing images specifically designed to appeal to specific users. In a previous […]

DuckDuckGo Traffic Growth

The growth of DuckDuckGo is amazing. It took seven years for DuckDuckGo to reach 10 million searches in one day. It then took another two years to hit 20 million searches in a day. It took less than a year after that for DuckDuckGo to surpass 30 million searches in a day! If you are […]

Artificial Neural Networks For Marketing

Artificial Neural Networks are progressive learning systems modeled after the human brain that continuously improve their function over time. Artificial neural networks can be effective in gathering and extracting the relevant information from big data, identify valuable trends, relationships and connections between the data, and then rely on the past outcomes and behaviors to help […]


Keras is an open source neural network library written in Python. Keras was conceived to be an interface rather than a standalone machine-learning framework. It offers a higher-level, more intuitive set of abstractions that make it easy to develop deep learning models regardless of the computational backend used. It is capable of running on top […]


TensorFlow was originally developed by the Google Brain Team within Google’s Machine Intelligence research organization for machine learning and deep neural networks research. TensorFlow is a Python-friendly open source machine learning framework for numerical computation that makes acquiring data, training models, serving predictions, and refining future results easier. TensorFlow bundles together a slew of machine […]

How Leading Technology Companies Are Using Artificial Intelligence And Machine Learning

Artificial Intelligence looks for patterns, learns from experience, and predicts responses based on historical data. Artificial Intelligence is able to learn new things at incredible speeds. Artificial Intelligence can be used to accurately predict your behavior and preempt your requests. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are shaping many of the products and services you interact […]

Facebook Usage Declines

42% of Facebook users say they have taken a break from checking the platform for a period of several weeks or more. 26% say they have deleted the Facebook app from their cellphone. According to Pew Research Facebook users continue to reduce the amount of time they are spending on the platform. Just over half […]

Latent Semantic Indexing – Does It Help SEO?

Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) and Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) are techniques in natural language processing to analyze relationships between a set of documents and the terms they contain by producing a set of concepts related to the documents and terms. I thought it might be helpful to explore the concept of Latent Semantic Indexing and […]

Why Open Source?

There are variety of good reasons to use open source technology when creating solutions for your business. Lower total cost of ownership (TCO): Using open source software yields a lower total cost of ownership when compared to closed source and proprietary alternatives. Shift developers from low-value work to high-value work: The easy problems have already […]
