Deep Data: Invisible Analytics
Raggad, B. January 2017 - December 2019.Scholarly Research Papers,Pace University,$3,045.00.Funded.On Internet we only access about 1% of existing Internet data. The rest is called deep data. We need what we call Invisible Analytics to get to some of it. If we are successful in doing this, it is just unbelievable the gains we get. For example, a university can use Invisible Analytics to understand student retention problems and can make corrections to maintain and improve its retention rate. A company can understand the reasons behind its customer attrition and what is behind its business value retention deficiencies. Invisible analytics will be the tool set needed to maintain its customers and enhance their loyalty which will secure its business value generation capabilities. Another example would be to use Invisible Analytics to understand our healthcare deficiencies and act to correct it. Unfortunately, we still spending billions of dollars on data capture from the Internet or from business operational systems to create boundless big data depots that we cannot dig it to produce valuable decision support information. We still have no clear approach to design the platform needed to start designing the analytical tools to generate decision support information to enhance business value in our educational systems, our healthcare systems, and our economy. This research project intends to design a computing platform for the development of Invisible Analytics tools to get into deep data and to explore our big data depots to produce valuable decision support information. We have completed the quantitative analysis and we were successful in building the belief structures needed to construct the needed probabilistic framework for the purpose of building the analytical tools for expanded data analytics. We also have tested our models in telemedicine to detect e-patient attrition and mitigate its impacts. We are currently working to extend the testing to other areas including student retention.
