So what's a smart machine? As a computing model designed to analyze growing volumes of unstructured data, including video, images, and human language, a smart machine, or cognitive computing system, uses artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to "sense, predict, infer and, in some ways, think," according to IBM.
In a recent report, "Cool Vendors in Smart Machines, 2014," Gartner named three well known examples of smart machines, including IBM's Watson, Google Now, and Apple's Siri, and predicted the technology will gain wider acceptance this decade. It also spotlighted a few up-and-coming vendors in the genre, including AlchemyAPI, Digital Reasoning, Highspot, Lumiata, and Narrative Science.
One of the technology companies that has gained from banks' increased vigilance is Digital Reasoning, based outside Nashville in the U.S. state of Tennessee.
Digital Reasoning's software can scan up to billions of communications from thousands of traders, spotting language patterns and raising a red flag to potentially dubious activity.
Rob Metcalf, the company's president and chief operating officer, told Reuters there has been a sharp increase in interest for this software from banks over the last six months, just as the global investigation has taken off.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. April 16, 2014 – Digital Reasoning, a leader in cognitive computing, today announced it has been included in the Cool Vendors in Smart Machines, 2014 report by leading analyst firm, Gartner.
Cognitive Computing stands as the single greatest disruption of our global society since the Industrial Revolution. Where the maturation of the Industrial Revolution created the magical gains in productivity that yielded the delivery of mass goods across the country and then across the world, the age of cognitive computing stands to amplify, augment, and multiply the productivity in ways that would have been unimaginable just a few years ago.
In the aftermath of Sept. 11, the federal government hired Brentwood-based Digital Reasoning to help fight terrorism with its technology.
And when the financial crisis erupted in 2008, banks realized they needed better ways to spot internal trouble spots, and turned to Digital Reasoning.
As the world's largest and least regulated financial market, and with close to $5.3 trillion dollars being traded each day – the foreign exchange market seems primed for manipulation.

In a budget-constrained federal environment, a common mantra is “do more with less.” With Digital Reasoning’s machine-learning platform, Synthesys®, it is now possible to augment analysts by enabling these valuable individuals to quickly analyze troves of data that would normally have taken many thousands of analysts an inordinate amount of time to complete.
Analysts today are often still unable to efficiently mine their poorly structured data (e.g. social media, email communications, instant messaging, etc.) This presents a real analysis challenge for policy and decision makers, as information isn’t transformed to knowledge quickly enough, and when expedited, the information isn’t always as accurate as expected.

What Is HackNashville?
One might describe it, if one were a programmer, as pure awesomeness - a feeling of being one with the Force for 48 hours of pure happiness and joy.
Of course, the only time that feeling is applicable is right after you demo your app for which you sacrificed 2 nights of sleep, personal hygiene, and proper nutrition.
Then you just want to sleep.
Unstructured data — everything from social media posts and sensor data to email, images and web logs — is growing at an unprecedented pace. Here are just a few mind-blowing statistics: Twitter sees about 175 million tweets each day and has more than 465 million accounts. 571 new websites are created every minute of every day. And the world creates 2.5 quintillion bytes of data per day from unstructured data sources like sensors, social media posts and digital photos. Clearly, unstructured data is growing exponentially, and government is no exception.
It’s been only five years since the global financial crisis of 2008. At the time it seemed like the domino effect of bank failures, the liquidity crisis and the ensuing global recession was enough to bring down even the strongest of financial infrastructures. But as governments around the world took the necessary steps to slow and eventually stop the crisis, banks, regulators and economists were given the opportunity to analyze exactly what went wrong.
Say you work for a large bank that has been embroiled in a crisis or scandal. In the discovery processes of the inevitable lawsuits that follow, investigators and lawyers (and in some cases, the U.S. Senate) find all manner of incriminating emails that the bank's risk and compliance departments did not know existed.
We decided to take our expertise with Salt, Django, and simple user interfaces and craft an easily consumable REST API, and a no-brainer user interface that would allow anyone, with minimal training, to create Stacks of Hosts that would be automatically launched, provisioned, and managed. We felt it should also include administrative features like user groups, permissions, reporting, automated rules, notifications, and lease periods. These features would help alleviate the problem of mistaken termination and leaving instances running while not in use.
The fact that data is doubling every two years mimics one of electronics’ most famous laws: Moore’s law. In 1965 Gordon Moore stated that the number of transistors on an integrated circuit doubled approximately every two years and he expected the trend to continue “for at least 10 years.” Forty-five years later, Moore’s law still influences many aspects of IT and electronics. As a consequence of Moore’s law, technology is more affordable and the latest innovations help engineers and scientists capture, analyze, and store data at rates faster than ever before.

It is sometimes difficult to remember that the World Wide Web on the Internet made its debut to the general public only about 22 years ago with Tim Berners-Lee’s first post to the alt.hypertext newsgroup. Yet, during that relative short time, it has had a profound impact on the availability of new sources of information, accessibility and flexibility. The Internet and its ability to turn anybody into a publisher has led to a virtual explosion of data (i.e. “Big Data”) that does not lend itself well to traditional analysis and management tools.
Washington, D.C. September 11, 2013 – Digital Reasoning, the company that enables automated understanding of human communication, is pleased to announce that its CEO and founder, Tim Estes, will be speaking today at the Department of Defense (DoD) and Intelligence Community (IC) briefing at the Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) Worldwide Public Sector Summit.

Emails, Word documents, PDFs, spreadsheets, and social media such as instant messaging and news feeds contain millions of facts about entities (people, organizations, and locations). Identifying which entities represent a real-world person, organization or location across millions of documents and merging them to aggregate knowledge about them is a major challenge for enterprises and government agencies.

Synthesys, Digital Reasoning’s machine learning platform that ferrets out meaning in unstructured data at scale, is bringing its smarts to compliance use cases for organizations, such as financial institutions. (See this article for more insight into the technology behind the company’s software.)
NASHVILLE, Tenn. July 29, 2013 – Digital Reasoning, the company that enables automated understanding of human communication, today announced the General Availability of Synthesys® v3.7, the latest release of their patented machine learning platform. As a result, organizations can now monitor and analyze email traffic in near real-time to quickly identify risks and suspicious behavior that could present regulatory or reputational risks.
“We worry a lot about how do we make sure we are listening when we should be listening,” said David Reilly, technology infrastructure executive at Bank of America. “It’s all too easy for a large enterprise to focus on the very effective partners we already have, the very large and effective partners who give us great service. But that can make you sometimes tune out a little bit and not go out of your way to listen to a company with a great solution they they haven’t learned how to pitch.”
It wasn’t that long ago when compliance was considered an afterthought by many financial institutions. With the top line being “the priority”, banks haven’t always been able to see the true benefits of compliance, and therefore make the right investments and adopt the right strategies.
With recent compliance-related losses at many leading financial institutions, the associated regulatory penalties, loss of customer confidence and overall reputational exposure, banks are taking a serious look at their compliance programs and rethinking their compliance strategies.
NEW YORK, July 15, 2013 – Digital Reasoning, the company that enables automated understanding of human communications, is using advanced machine learning technology to help financial institutions analyze human generated data to identify risks and anticipate suspicious activity that can have a damaging effect on their business.

Mountains of unstructured data hold some of the most important answers to the critical problems we face today. Unfortunately, because there is so much data, it’s extremely difficult to uncover the most important information. Illuminating this valuable material enables people discover insights, opportunities, and risks that can make a major impact on decisions that need to be made.

Ever been stuck behind someone who barged in front of you, only to then move at a much slower pace and hold everyone up? Perhaps it’s the slowpoke in the overtaking lane, or the old lady who elbows you aside on the subway stairs then shuffles down, one step at a time? Or, perhaps, has your firm ever placed a trade knowing you have the fastest infrastructure, only to get held up by third parties or queues of orders at the execution venue?
