April 15, 2010 CARY, North Carolina — Saffron Technology, Inc., a privately held software firm providing Experience Management solutions for business and government, today launched TweetDive, an open-source demonstration application that uses associative memory technology for streaming data analytics, using Twitter as a live data source.
TweetDive showcases Saffron Natural Intelligence Platform Version 8 (Saffron 8), including SaffronMemoryBaseTM and Saffron REST APIs, by showing users and developers how the underlying associative memory technology works, and what it can do. TweetDive enables users to see precisely how queries are formed (i.e., how you interact with the API), and how connections, analogies, trends and classifications are made by memories of the data.
"Twitter is nonstop commentary on what's happening in the world, and Saffron delivers nonstop data analytics," said Manny Aparicio, CEO and founder of Saffron Technology. "Tweets comprise 'worlds of Experience' about a given topic -- money, Haiti, health care, or business intelligence, for example. With TweetDive we are showing how Saffron 8 represents data, and how it can be used to make sense of data. We invite all developers to come innovate with Saffron at www.tweetdive.com."
Saffron is open-sourcing the code for TweetDive so developers can get a quick start, and see how easy it is to ingest data into Saffron 8 and apply the Experience hidden in their data to make better, faster decisions.
