Big Data Neural Networks

When Big Data and Predictive Analytics Collide
Judgments are mostly visual Big Data is usually defined in terms of Volume, Variety and Velocity (the so called 3 Vs). Volume implies breadth and depth, while variety is simply the nature of the beast: on-line transactions, tweets, text, video, sound, ... Velocity, on the other hand, implies that data is being produced amazingly fast (according to IBM, 90% of the data that exists today was generated in the last 2 years), but that it also gets old pretty fast. In fact, a few data varieties tend to age quicker than others.
To be able to tackle Big Data, systems and platforms need to be robust, scalable, and agile.
It is in this context that IntelliFest 2012 came to be. The conference theme this year was "Intelligence in the Cloud", exploring the use of applied AI in cloud computing, mobile apps, Big Data, and many other application areas. Among several amazing speakers at Intellifest were Stephen Grossberg from Boston University, Rajat Monga from Google, Carlos Serrano-Morales from Sparkling Logic, Paul Vincent from TIBCO, and Alex Guazzelli from Zementis.
Dr. Alex Guazzelli's talk on Big Data, Predictive Analytics, and PMML is now available for on-demand viewing on YouTube. The abstract follows below, together with several resources including the presentation slides and files

With the stock market lurching again, plenty of investors are nervous, and some are downright bearish. Then there’s Robert Prechter, the market forecaster and social theorist, who is in another league entirely.
Prechter is convinced we have entered a market decline of staggering proportions – perhaps the biggest of the last 300 years.
In a series of phone conversations and e-mail exchanges last week, he said that no other forecaster was likely to accept his reasoning, which is based on his version of the Elliott Wave theory – a technical approach to market analysis that he embraces with evangelical fervor.
Originating in the writings of Ralph Nelson Elliott, an obscure accountant who found repetitive patterns, or "fractals," in the stock market of the 1930s and...

For example, there's a story about King Herod in the December issue that goes into great detail about his rein.
It's distinguished by passages such as this one:
Yet today he is best known as the sly and murderous monarch of Matthew's Gospel, who slaughtered every male infant in Bethlehem in an unsuccessful attempt to kill the newborn Jesus, the prophesied King of the Jews. During the Middle Ages he became an image of the Antichrist: Illuminated manuscripts and Gothic gargoyles show him tearing his beard in mad fury and brandishing his sword at the luckless infants, with Satan whispering in his ear. Herod is almost certainly innocent of this crime, of which there is no report apart from Matthew's account.

The other side recycles the "models-are-inaccurate" argument because it they remain the only evidence offered that humans are responsible for any observed shift in the climate. Without those models there is every indication that what we are experiencing is a normal, natural occurance and any influence humans have is minimal at worst. Those models are the GW camps stock in trade. Without those models they have nothing, or at best very little.
As the primary evidence offered for the theory any critical examination will focus on those models.
As far as credentials go it seems to me the pro-GW camp play pretty fast and loose with this as well. There are many contributors to the IPCC reports whose primary speciality is not climateology. And many that would not qualify as...
