Can You Control A Super Computer With Twitter? Stephen Wolfram Says Sure Tweet-a-Program

Can You Control A Super Computer With Twitter? Stephen Wolfram Says Sure Tweet-a-Program | BI Revolution | Scoop.it

Wouldn't it be great if you could just call up a supercomputer and ask it to do your data-wrangling for you? Actually, scratch that, no-one uses the phone anymore. What'd be really cool is if machines could respond to your queries straight from Twitter. It's a belief that's shared by Wolfram Research, which has just launched the Tweet a Program system to its computational knowledge engine, Wolfram Alpha. In a blog post, founder Stephen Wolfram explains that even complex queries can be executed within the space of 140 characters, including data visualizations.


In the Wolfram Language a little code can go a long way. And to use that fact to let everyone have some fun with the introduction of Tweet-a-Program. Compose a tweet-length Wolfram Language program, and tweet it to @WolframTaP. TheTwitter bot will run your program in the Wolfram Cloud and tweet the result back to you. One can do a lot with Wolfram Language programs that fit in a tweet. It’s easy to make interesting patterns or even complicated fractals. Putting in some math makes it easy to get all sorts of elaborate structures and patterns.


The Wolfram Language not only knows how to compute π, as well as a zillion other algorithms; it also has a huge amount of built-in knowledge about the real world. So right in the language, you can talk about movies or countries or chemicals or whatever. And here’s a 78-character program that makes a collage of the flags of Europe, sized according to country population. There are many, many kinds of real-world knowledge built into the Wolfram Language, including some pretty obscure ones. The Wolfram Language does really well with words and text and deals with images too.

Now THIS is coolest thing I read today. Ever see the great movie 3 Days of the Condor when Robert Redford calls the computer and via a series of commands tracing a phone number. That was COOL. This "tweet-a-program" to control a super computer with 140 characters is awesome.

Oracle Gets Its SOCIAL Endeca On: Expands Data Sources For Business Intelligence To Include Social, Excel and Others

Oracle Gets Its SOCIAL Endeca On: Expands Data Sources For Business Intelligence To Include Social, Excel and Others | BI Revolution | Scoop.it
Oracle has revised two of its business intelligence products, giving users the ability to wrest intelligence from a wider range of data sources, including spreadsheets, social media sites and Hadoop deployments.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Oracle Getting Its Social Endecca ON
I used Endeca's powerful faceted search in my last gig and these latest changes to their UI to allow easy drag and drop data visualization sound cool. Here is a note from their release:

Oracle New Endeca Release
The newly released Oracle Endeca Information Discovery 3.0 is the first major product update for the software since Oracle acquired Endeca in October 2011, Rodwick said. The Endeca software allows users to analyze unstructured data, or data that has not been captured in a database or data warehouse. 

and

In addition to connectivity to additional data sources, the newly released Endeca software also comes with a new user interface. Users can now drag and drop visualizations to data source, allowing the software render a visual representation of the data in the chosen format. It can now also search and index material in 22 languages.


The Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation Suite version 11.1.1.7 also expands the number of data sources it can work with. This is the first version of the suite to be able to draw data from a Hadoop cluster, through the Hive Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) connector.


Oracle BI “dashboards, reports and scorecards can source from Hadoop,” Rodwick said. “The Oracle BI Server generates a Hive query language, which initiates a Hadoop job. You can leave the data in Hadoop, rather than moving it into a database.”

A Look Behind The Big Data Twitter Curtain Thanks To A Wizard

A Look Behind The Big Data Twitter Curtain Thanks To A Wizard | BI Revolution | Scoop.it

What factors go into determining how many Twitter followers you gain (and lose) each day? I analyzed thousands of accounts to find the answer.

 

Key takeaways

 

The types of content you tweet have significant impacts on attracting and keeping followers.Hashtags probably aren't dead.Each tweet that includes an image, has a hashtag, is a retweet, or mentions someone associates with 2-6% more daily followers.


Just as it does with Rand, your account will likely have individualized factors that move the needle for you.You can explore these via Excel! Check your Followerwonk account for a complimentary spreadsheet of your Twitter activity.Don't forget to follow me @petebray so that I can test whether this blog post significantly moves my follower count! :) And let me know what you uncover.

Hashtags werden in dem Maße problematisch, in welchem das Hashtag Spamming weiter zunimmt. Insbesondere Instagram ist hier ein Treiber dieser unguten Entwicklung und Crossposting.

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Close Eyes And VINE
I confess to being LOST and CONFUSED by Vine, but people I trust who are smarter than me love it. This stat should make me sit up and take notice too:

....mobile video is expected to represent 66 percent of global mobile data traffic within the next five years, and 87 percent of marketers in the U.S. already use video for content marketing. 

K, I promise to stop FIGHTING and learn to love da BOMB!. I will close my eyes and create some serious Vine-age :).

Anyone who can help me GET THIS faster please do so :).
