It has been a long time since the last post, now I'm in London working on exiting projects for very big companies!
My current project is the design and development of a visual statistical enviroment with R-Project as backend. I hope the company I'm working for will release it as an Open Source tool for complex Data Mining analysis.
Oracle plans to include a complete set of Open Soure tools in its Big Data Appliance solution for data management and data analysis.
The most interesting news is the inclusion of Apache Hadoop and R project, a professional Open Source solution for data analysis and statistics.
R-project, a professional and powerfull statistical software, is also used as Data Mining tool for Text Mining and Social Network Analysis.
This paper covers an example on how to use R project to analyze the content of big mailing lists http://journal.r-project.org/archive/2011-1/RJournal_2011-1_Bohn~et~al.pdf
The R project like functions names helps statistician, data mining and business intelligence developers who are confortable with this famous open source statistical software.
