A Hot Place to be in One Word: Analytics


Tech Monkey
I first thought that Analytics was just some invented term that this guy came up with. A google for "analytics" does lead to a wikipedia definition which seems in line.

In a way it is just statistical analysis, but he is using it in a very general term. Engineers use it to try to figure out what happened and/or when it started. Once I applied many ideas to analyzing the noise generated by rolling railroad wheels to find ones that were developing cracks == volumes of data per wheel.:confused: Wall Street uses it to automate trading ... how do you automate shear emotional gambling?

Just posting this for those who like messing with numbers and wondering what they might do with it.:)
