A photoessay speak a 1,000 words?

I have been doing some research and modeling the use of words that could then create predictive analytics based on behaviors and sharing some of the random slides with you.

A brief into ruction from wikipedia on what an n-gram is?  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N-gram

“In the fields of computational linguistics and probability, an n-gram is a contiguous sequence of n items from a given sequence of text or speech. The items can be phonemessyllablesletters,words or base pairs according to the application. The n-grams typically are collected from a text or speech corpus.An n-gram of size 1 is referred to as a “unigram”; size 2 is a “bigram” (or, less commonly, a “digram”); size 3 is a “trigram“. Larger sizes are sometimes referred to by the value of n, e.g., “four-gram”, “five-gram”, and so on.”

So does it mean we think Social is new? Not for over 200 years! Seems a little in decline now actually?

Whatever you derive is interesting. But the work around word usage reflect behaviors which are a privet to creating analytical models that can potentially be leveraged from buying equities to understanding change. That’s part of my work with a very smart team. Love to hear your thoughts.

You should try https://books.google.com/ngrams  very interesting.
