In today’s post I want to get a little bit into the technology behind Google search, especially into the relational algorithm that orders the websites in a search. The idea came to me when i was researching new uses for databases used by great it corporations, like freebase.com. In this particular case freebase is a collection of structured data useful in any domain, the great thing different from other data bases being that users can submit their own researched data bases, transforming it in a wiki portal.
Not to long ago Google bought a company called DeepMind. Now we can see the result in next video:
If you ever try, out of curiosity to join data from your website to other organic searches from search engines related to your field you might discover interesting facts to exploit to your benefit in terms of factors that influence website traffic.
We all know that there is a lot of information going around on the internet and sometimes can be hard to browse through all kinds of pages containing misleading information, so it’s only better if you can correctly identify if the content was recently updated or it’s just a post from the beginning of the internet.
1. You can see the year in the copyright footer:
2. You can check its last update in the web time-machine:
3. You can try to identify an associated blog and check the last blog entry:
4. The last method is to search on Google the website and to check the date of the last change in search results.
I’m hoping that you will use one of this methods if you have any uncertainties about any online information.
I’m coming back to writing after a short break because data science is always evolving. In this way, 2015 is promising to become a remarkable year for Big Data.
This month a new technology was introduced to public by researchers at the Ohio State University. More specific, a new privacy- preserving algorithm called Crowd-ML. This is a machine learning framework for crowdsensing systems that consists of a number of smart devices and a server. The efficiency of Crowd-ML consists in implementing sensing, learning and privacy mechanisms together, having the power to build classifiers or predictors of interest from crowdsensing data using processing capabilities of devices with formal privacy standards.
From the very beginning, one of the core services TheWebMiner provided was aggregated data and insight into the mobile app landscape. We managed to offer our clients custom aggregated data for all major mobile app marketplaces (iOS AppStore, Google Play, Amazon AppStore etc.) as well as primary analysis on the extracted data.
If there is something that we learned this year is that the internet is not unbreakable. Hints about the power of some individuals have been released in the last years through Anonymous members but only throughout 2014 they took form of cyber attacks. Some of them you’ve heard about, some of them are new, so here are the top 5 cyber-attacks of the year:
If you need to install some python extension on windows by PIP or easy install and you have some errors maybe it’s a better idea to download compiled extension from here: Compiled Python extensions.
I wrote this after one hour of tries to install lxml by PIP on windows 7.
This year was a great year for setting new trends and directions of development for the it market. Now, with the year having almost ended I think that it is only fair to have a retrospective look over the things that counted and influenced our decisions this year.
I will start this series of articles with the recent published its top best apps of 2014 and describe the best apps from every category as published by apple. Before starting it is to appreciate the fact that this year selected apps are mostly focused on wellness and health which can only be the next app trend.
This year App Of The Year trophy was claimed by Elevate a simple but intuitive app meant to develop one’s cognitive ability by series of daily exercises. The App is also adaptive so it challenges your brain according to previsions results. Its Runner-up was Instagram’s very own app Hyperlapse.
Also, for the best game, Apple chose a self development one giving the first place to Threes!, closely followed by Leo’s Fortune a physics-based puzzle game.
A number of various apps followed these most important ones into the rank but i won’t bother you with details. What we have to learn from here is how the trend is to promote self development apps whether they are games or not or even paid or not.
In the end I would like to remember you that the entire database for App Store and Google Play can be found updated to day on TheWebMiner along with description, price and other significant indicators. To contact us, please follow this link.
