6th July 20156/07/15

“NLP is not magic, but the results you can get sometimes seem almost magical.” —from http://www.confidencenow.com/nlp-seduction.htm Author: Wei Li, Chief Scientist The lack of standardized technical terminology in constantly evolving technology areas like Natural Language Processing (NLP) can make discussions about this technology challenging for a few reasons: New researchers can be overwhelmed by an ever-growing and confusing list of technical terms Different researchers may have different terms for the same concept Terms can be ambiguous or refer to different things in different people’s minds Without a clear consensus, the burden falls on the tech community to decode the semantics or [...] Read more →

 |  VP of Marketing, NetBase
24th June 201524/06/15

Why are so many brands still getting it wrong and making avoidable social slip-ups? Major brands like the Washington Redskins, Victoria’s Secret, and SeaWorld  – to name a few –have ended up in the spotlight for the wrong reason by ignoring (or missing) a big piece of the social data puzzle: Emotion.

On social media, it’s not logic that wins the day, it’s passion. How will your campaign make people [...] Read more →

Compelling Imagery Isn’t Always Valuable

22nd June 201522/06/15

The human version of the joke claims that “Shiny!” things compel us away from more important pursuits. Sounds a lot like social media, doesn’t it?

Even for brands possessing the resources [...] Read more →

28th May 201528/05/15

It’s not easy to tell a story in 140 characters. No wonder we use images so often in our social posts. In our fast-paced, short-attention-span world, we rely on visuals to fill in the rest of the “thousand words” of the message we want to convey – and it works. We’ve been thinking about images at NetBase lately. Well, we’re always looking for new ways to mine the content shared on social media for actionable insights gleaned from user behaviors and emotions – like our new firehose alliance with Tumblr which gives us access to this visually-oriented social network’s data, [...] Read more →
