Analytics are connecting companies with their customers – with better understanding of their interests and the products/services that they need. To date, semantic technology has been addressing data management challenges associated with analytics that must be resolved before analytics begin. Now, semantic and cognitive techniques are augmenting conventional data-driven analytics to provide more accurate results as well as new insights from the data.
This presentation will describe knowledge-based reasoning techniques to expand and accelerate insight delivery, including:
- Data discovery to find unrealized patterns and trends
- Clustering through semantic tagging
- Identifying and predicting behavior changes
- Graph Pattern Matching to find similar customers
- Analyzing data in the long tail
- Comprehensive risk analysis from disparate distributed data
