Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RPANEPA) is organizing the Business Intelligence section in conjunction with the AINL-FRUCT-2016 Conference.
The term Business Intelligence (BI) may be interpreted as a combination Business Applications + Artificial Intelligence. The key element in the formula is 'Intelligence', which supposes processing unstructured noisy data. BI takes its roots in decision support systems and expert systems for business applications, which appeared at 1970s-1980s. Howard Dresner, the analyst at Gartner, defined BI as a general term describing "concepts and methods for improving process of decision-making using systems on the basis of business data" (1989). BI and business analytics (BA) sometimes are used as synonims although there is a difference between them. BI focuses on the search of useful information using heuristic methods while BA focuses on analysis of current situation on the basis of statistical methods. BA is considered as a part of BI.
The date of session is November 11 or 12, the exact day will be announced later.
Mathematical Modeling of Information Processes in a Society
Olga Proncheva, Ph.D. student of the Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics RAS, assistant of the Moscow Institute of Physics and Techlnology
Abstract. The current stage of social development is characterized by a sharply increasing role of information environment. Mass-media has a specialrole in information dissemination, because this process begins with propaganda and only then moves to networks. This is why we focus on the role of the media in information processes.The lecture is devotedto mathematical models of information dissemination. Within the limits of their applicability they allow to examine qualitatively the natureof information processes. Some computational and analytical results are presented. It is shown that a number of significantly different scenarios can occur.
Processing queries to search engine of Yandex: possibilities of analysis and forecast
Anna Boldyreva, M.Sc. student of the M.Sc. program RANEPA-MIPT
Abstract. Search queries to Internet are a real reflection of events and processes that happen in the informative society. Moreover, the recent research shows that search queries can be an effective tool for the analysis and forecast of these events and processes. In the lecture, we present our experience in creating databases of descriptors (queries and their combinations) to be used in real problems. Examples related to the analysis and forecast of regional economy and regional police work illustrate an application of the mentioned descriptors.
