Whether in financial services, legal investigation, or government intelligence, understanding the social network fabric is critical to making better, faster and more actionable decisions. These networks are typically determined by static user-defined criteria such as “like”, “knows”, “connection request”, however, these critical connections are far more dynamic that these user-defined entries. Furthermore, the true “Social Network” can be among people, places, organizations and many other categories.

In his presentation, Tim Estes will discuss how the Entity Oriented Analytics in Synthesys dynamically discovers, refines and presents these and many other critical connections derived directly from the data – especially when the source is very large scale unstructured data. The ability to discover and present these connections, classifications and rankings dynamically is critical to expanding our understanding of underlying facts and reducing the reading burden of overwhelmed data analysts.

Entity Oriented Analytics is uniquely is positioned to verify relationship assumptions to meet today’s real-time big data demands.

Outstanding presentation and very cool that they are putting their algorithm into open beta for people to try out. Completely agree that not everyone will want their data in open access.
