Anyway, I can see how they could market this. What it will do is it will substitute for _some_ middle management and _some systems analysts and it can be a very hot ticket item.

I hope they’re successful at marketing this product. There’s likely a problem with the studies here though: {yeah I’m wet blanketing a little ’cause … you know… countering hype}

The human teams being studied against are trained in the SAME methodologies the program was trained in. This is a highly specialized set of humans – not just any ol’ humans inferring – against a program that’s been trained in the SAME methods/procedures/ways of thinking as the human counterpoints, but algorithmatized.

So in that specialized environment, this is a MARVELOUS thing: cut out the need for teams of humans to infer in data modeling.

This will be a HUGE boost to business as they’re always looking to cut out staff.

(I was a systems analyst for Business Information Systems for a few years at big phama and I know the importance of exactly the stuff this MIT thing is working on. I was a weird hybrid between business analyst and IT, not quite either but little bits of both)

It will also take care of the more common issues here, allowing for more human creative thinking that will surpass what results this comes up with.

’cause… after all, once you have good business metrics to work with, you have to send out sales force to sell, and utilize all the PT Barnum style tricks to convince buyers to buy and such. All that never changes smile emoticon

Will it help infer “What is the author’s intent?” in my 5th grade English test? Probably not. But at least it’ll help with business metrics and that’ll be good for biz. smile emoticon
