Environment

In the last few decades, companies have accumulated overwhelming amounts of data, be it textual (reports, emails, phone call transcripts, etc.), numeric (sales figures, meteorological data, etc.) or binary (images, audio, sensor data, etc.). Using statistical “data mining” methods, one can detect tendencies, hidden patterns, and knowledge nuggets, and use them to make strategic decisions. This process is of crucial importance in all sectors of activity, and in particular for business, science, politics, security, healthcare, etc.... [-]
