There’s a great deal of wisdom in a crowd, but how do you listen to a thousand people talking at once? Identifying the wants, needs, and knowledge of internet. As Satnam Alag writes in this book, collective intelligence as a research field actually pre- dates the web. But it was after the dot-com era had.

Part 1 Gathering data for intelligence
Some of the basic tools discussed are Lucene, a free version of what Google will sell you for a search intellkgence, Nutch, a free web crawler, both of which require coding and WEKA, a free open source data mining package that looks usable by the rest of us. This book is for Java developers implementing Collective Intelligence in real, high-use applications. Like any good text book, the material is presented in an iterative and incremental way. Here’s how it gets applied: He is a seasoned software professional with over fifteen years of experience in machine learning and over a decade of experience in commercial software development and management.
Collective Intelligence in Action is a hands-on guidebook for implementing collective intelligence concepts using Java. Building the text analyzers.
What is collective intelligence? Dispatched from the UK in 2 business days When will my order arrive? Benjamin Anderson rated it liked it Dec 18, I recommend “Collective Intelligence in Action” to the Java developers who would like to know how to build recommendation systems, intelligent search of theirs resources, automatic tagging or network crawling.
Other applications discussed include the automatic creation of folksonomies taxonomies based on popular usage using cluster analysis and categorization using Bayes theorem.
Popular features such as tag clouds colleftive recommendation engines are defined. For example the World Bank has the capability not necessarily using these methods to match similar projects around the world so that experience gained in one area can be found and applied elsewhere. Similar docs would have a high value close to 1, say.
Simple and composite content types. Collective Intelligence is a big topic so the title of apag book is very ambitious. Similarity between documents is measured by taking the dot product of the two vectors.
The code examples are immediately reusable and give the Java developer a working collective intelligence toolkit. This book is for Java developers implementing Collective Intelligence in real, high-use applications.
Finally a note to SF fans, this may be the point at which the Web starts to appear to be intelligent. Simple examples of some of the underlying math is worked out.
Collective Intelligence : Satnam Alag :
There’s a great deal of wisdom in a crowd, but co,lective do you listen to a thousand people talking at once? I highly recommend it.
Algorithms of the Intelligent Web, Second Edition. Dissimilar docs would have a low coefficient, say. After I read it, I was surprised that this book is so practical.
This is not an academic work, people ijtelligence are looking for theoretical information about CI could be disappointed. Paperbackpages. After reading it, you should be able to add the CI features to the existing sites. Even mistaking “sewer” a conduit for waste and sewer one who uses a needle and thread is taken into account because both docs would only be similar on a couple of keywords, and dissimilar on most others.
He has published numerous peer-reviewed articles. Will Godfrey rated it really liked it Oct 13, Farris Foreword by Liz Liddy. It is the first Java-based book to emphasize the underlying algorithms and technical implementation of vital data gathering and mining techniques like analyzing trends, discovering relationships, and making predictions.
The curiosity led me to read “Collective Intelligence in Action”. There’s a great deal of wisdom in a crowd, but how do you listen to a thousand people talking at once? Collective Intelligence in Action by Satnam Alag. In addition to recommendation engines Alag points out the usefulness of these techniques to Search and points out several search engines that apply this approach as does Googletools that search out and provide news based on your preferences, or suggest “friends” ie: Petro rated it did not like it Jun 04, Various data structures and algorithms are classified.
