Welcome to episode 11 of the naked analyst and from this week on I am changing the emphasis slightly. It has been a few weeks since the last episode and that has been due to my launch of a new website. It’s called doclens.com and our mission is to make it easier for people to learn how data and analytics is used by the best in the global Financial Industry. I believe that these lessons also apply outside of finance and should be of interest to many practising data and analytic people.
The exciting thing behind this website is that it is driven by a propriatory semantic analysis platform that automatically reads and analysises the best research published across more than 100 thought leader websites.
Almost all thought leaders – such as the major consultants, think-tanks, universities, industry bloggers, and so on - freely publish their research and opinion online. We estimate 50,000 – 100,000 items are published annually. So it’s impossible to keep on top of all this great reseach – until now that is!
At doclens, we automatically monitor this research as it is published. We then select the most thought provoking 1% and publish this on our site. So all of a sudden, you only have to read summaries of a handful of the best research to keep yourself informed. We believe that this is a breakthrough for analysts.
So from now on, the naked analyst will be coming out weekly and will be a 90 second overview of the latest and best research published on doclens. In this way we can all benefit from the latest ideas, surveys and technologies as they emarge in our field.
I’m excited about this, and I want to invite you all to join me as a founding member of doclens. We are offering free subscriptions to the first 1,000 founders. So sign up on www.doclens.com soon!
Until next time, thanks for watching.
