On your qt of the difference between AA and ExSCG - I read what you think th difference will be. My impression is that the ExSCG will probably be more technical and could be less accessible for a broader audience (which would be perfectly ok) given the format but it will really depend. I am interested to see where the AA goes - it seems like it is setup to be more collaborative. It might be easier for me to get co-workers to look at. On a difference subject, as I work more in enterprise architecture, the more rules technology keeps coming up, which is why we will probably continue to overlap. The Zachman presentation at Rules Fest was another example.

ILOG the first to post solution to Albert Enistein's puzzle on ORF 2009


Daniel Selman was the third to solve and first to post to ORF 2009 a solution to Einstein's Puzzle for ORF 2009.

Rulebased Forecasting, RBF


With the collaboration of three most excellent colleagues I have returned to the world of Quantitative Analysis and Forecasting. Finally!! Monica Adya was kind enough to send me the 1992 code that she did for seminal work that was co-authored by Fred Collopy and J. Scott Armstrong in 1992. It's all in C++ but I hope to begin by transferring to a combination of either Drools (or JRules or Advisor or OPS or JessJ or whatever) and Java. Or, perhaps, just leave the processing… Continue

Number of Countries on AA


We have nine "members" from outside the USA, but only eight total countries counting the USA. The count from outside the USA is as follows:

1 Aussie

1 Belgium

2 Germany

1 France (UK escapee)

1 Mexico

1 Sweden

2 UK


Regardless, this is almost as many different countries as we had at ORF 2008. Which is not surprising since most came from ORF 2008 mailing list. Now, what we need is some "new blood" from folks… Continue
