Celebrating Sentibet's Amazing Sports Forecast for Major Events

In addition to months of amazingly accurate forecasting of weekly rounds of major European football game outcomes, Sentibet has come through with accurate forecasting data on four of the major sporting events this year - the U.S.'s National Football League Super Bowl, The NCAA College Basketball March Madness finals, England's FA Cup Finals and the EUFA Champions League Finals. The EUFA Finals were a bit tricky, since there was very strong Wish sentiment amongst fans for Chelsea to pull it out. But the Feeling and Prediction data from more than 56,000 Twitter messages analysed by Sentibet were providing strong signals that a draw was eminent.

This is the strength of Sentibet's methodology - it provides four different signals that can support intelligent forecasting of sporting events - not just raw sentiment or a "black box" overall prediction. When all of the signals point in the same direction, you can get a strong sense that people's minds and hearts are in sync. When the heart-mind signals diverge, it means that there is likely going to be a lot of people hoping for something that they know is not likely. Amazingly, when the Sentibet data is viewed from this perspective, its forecasts are accurate far and above the usual sentiment analysis tools - and, quite often, defying the oddmakers' picks to select the eventual winners in tough-to-call matches.

Join Me in an On-Air Hangout this Friday, 4 May for Insights into Advanced Text Analytics

I really enjoyed speaking at the recent Text Analytics Summit in London, and the presentation was well received. So, I am thinking, why not share my slide talk with you in a Google Hangout? I look forward to you coming by and learning how +Neurolingo surprised everyone with their ability to provide amazingly accurate forecasts of outcomes in European and U.S. sports events based on a sophisticated analysis of fan messages on Twitter.

Neurolingo's Sentibet.com Predicitive Analytics Forecasted Kentucky NCAA Basketball Championship

This year's NCAA Men's Basketball tournament crowned the University of Kentucky's team as its national champion in what proved to be a month of startling upsets and twists. The 67-59 win for the Wildcats over the Jayhawks was a coronation of the kings of U.S. college basketball predicted by Sentibet.com, the online service developed by Neurolingo based on its industry-leading text analytics technology platform. Sentibet ingested more than 3,900 messages posted on the Twitter social media service identified by the service as having valuable data and analyzed them to determine the focus and intent of fans for each team based on fans' hopes, wishes and their predictions for the game. The analysis showed that while there was a strong underdog sentiment wishing for a Kansas win, the overall sentiment based on Sentibet's analysis forecasted a 54 percent chance of a Kentucky win.

This big score by Sentibet comes on the heels of its correct forecast of a +New York Giants win in this year's SuperBowl and its continuing outstanding performance in forecasting winners in Europe's Premier League Football matches. For this last weekend, as an example, Sentibet forecasted 7 of the 10 winners of Premier League games. In earlier rounds of NCAA basketball, Sentibet did a good job of sending signals that fans' minds were aware of what their hearts may not have wanted. In Kentucky's earlier games against Ohio State and Louisville, for example, the emotional signals in Sentibet's analysis were coming up strong for Kentucky's opponents but the Prediction signal coming out of their tweets was pointing solidly towards a Kentucky win:

This strong performance by Sentibet underscores that text analytics of sentiment in social media and other content sources is not simply a matter of picking up emotions based on a simple examination of key words. It's essential to have technology in place that can move past matching a "bag of words" and to analyze the linguistic structure that's specific to each topic, community and venue that people use to communicate in order to pick up much more specific signals for people's focus and intent. Using Neurolingo's sophisticated and rapidly programmable Mnemosyne text analytics platform, Sentibet is proving that it's possible to delve far deeper into accurate predictive analytics via semantic processing technologies than ever before.

Monitoring Risk: What Can Financial Institutions Learn From Casino Operations?

The saying goes in casinos, "the house always wins." Well, we'd hope that the same would be true for hedge funds and investment banks, but that's not always the case - especially when staff are risking enormous sums in trading positions that expose their companies to major financial losses. While Neurolingo's sophisticated semantic text analytics services can help investors with trading strategies, their ability to extract human focus and intent from unstructured information sources can be a great tool in a financial institution's ability to detect when their staffs are pushing the numbers past what their personalities can handle. More in the blog post.
