Talkin’ bots an’ revolution

Talkin bots an revolution

A visit to the ESOMAR congress is a sure way to know what’s the next fad or major shift in Market Research. And in September, I counted 4 papers about chat bots. As a proud supporter of the ASC, I am going to point out that the first good paper I saw at a MR conference was at the May 2017 day conference by Simon Neve of Wizu fame. I am not usually afraid of jumping on the bandwagon but in that same conference, Chris Davison and I…

Askiaface: moving forward

Askiaface for iOS & Android moving forward

In order for us to continue maintaining and improving our face-to-face iOS and Android apps, we continually need to update the components upon which these are built; namely the base SDKs provided by Apple and Google. Of course, this implies that we sometimes also need to drop support for older versions of these development tools. Either because maintaining them is time-consuming or because of breaking changes introduced in subsequent platform updates. We have therefore decided to drop support for such obsolete mobile OS versions. Here’s the breakdown: iOS…

Analyse 5.5.2 – Jewels in the Crown (pt 1)

Analyse Extensions R Packages

As technology has evolved, data science techniques have become more mainstream and this, in turn, has contributed to the increased value of data in industries like yours and mine. Some say it’s the new oil! Whilst pitching their oil rigs in a sea of numbers, companies need to seek out the modern-day alchemists who can turn the regular data we all know into this black gold enthusiastically allegorised by economists and business leaders alike. Well, you don’t need to be Paulo Coelho to know which field you will…

Pragmatic machine learning – from Analyse to iOS

Machine learning is coming

I joined Askia in January as a techie and some might say that writing a data science post when surrounded by a bunch of confirmed data science nerds is stupid. I would say it’s suicidal. So to make everyone comfortable I’d like to add that this is not a data science article but a pragmatic approach of how anyone could use data from our analyse software to create some pretty cool predictive models. I am going to walk through a very basic example of how we used data…
