Techerous

My name is Bill, I am a recent graduate in Information Sciences and Technology from Penn State University and this is a place for me to post or give my 2 cents on the fascinating world of technology. I am now working for a pretty big technology related company whose name I will leave out just to avoid any possible complications, however far-fetched them happening may be. Music gets included from time to time as well.

Natural language processing is definitely the future, though the assumption that most data comes per-structured seems flawed to me.  Then again maybe that’s where the “line-work” of the information age comes in, business leaders may have the benefit of getting immediate answers but they will still need the workers to create the structure for them.
