Collective Intelligence in Action is a hands-on guide for Java developers implementing
Collective Intelligence in real, high-use web applications.
Collective Intelligence in Action is a hands-on guidebook for Java developers
implementing collective intelligence concepts. This book teaches vital data gathering
and mining techniques like analyzing trends, discovering relationships,
and making predictions using Java-based examples. Readers learn to collect,
analyze, and benefit from the massive quantities of user information generated
by Web 2.0 applications.
Following a running example, readers harvest and use information from blogs,
tags, and other sources. They then learn to develop software that can embed in
their own applications. The code examples are immediately reusable and give the
Java developer a working collective intelligence toolkit.
Because a smart developer knows theres no reason to reinvent the wheel, the
book uses public APIs and open-source toolkits including search using Lucene,
web-crawling using Nutch, machine learning using WEKA, and the Java Data
Mining (JDM) standard. Readers also learn from case studies that include
Amazon, Google News, and Netflix
