Radar: Bespoke System Built using Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing & Laravel

Built to help automate and monitor online communities mentioning certain keywords in realtime, a bespoke system called Radar, uses the latest technologies in machine learning, natural language processing, laravel combined with VueJS.

The system communicates with a series of Radar scanners (raspberry pi)  which load selected websites in a browser, which is controlled via a bespoke plugin that periodically checks for the given keywords.

If a match is found, an alert is sent back to the system. From here, the system will perform some cleaning tasks; such as encoding, filtering out rude words and discarding posts containing duplicates or retweets. The next task is to broadcast the new alert to users logged in. If e-mail alerts have been selected then an email will be sent, notifying the user of the new alert. Similarly, the alert will be sent to the chosen API if the option is selected.

A number of scheduled tasks also run periodically; one of the priority tasks involves performing predictions on whether the alert is interesting based on whether previous alerts of a similar ilk have been marked as interesting. Another task performs sentiment analysis which rates the emotion of the alert to detect whether it is negative or positive. One of the last tasks checks the system performs, is to define whether any of the new alerts are similar to any of the last 100 alerts – this is useful for detecting trends.

* There are a number of tasks which haven’t been mentioned to protect the intelligence of the system

Testimonials

BAAM has worked with Dean for the last 2 years. He helped us set up a website for BAAMfest 2015 and it was a great experience. After the festival Dean was more than kind to help us revamp the website and personalise it. After initial brainstorming he successfully translated our sketchy ideas into a vibrant website. He has always made time to accommodate our requests and assist with hiccups. He is very easy to communicate with and is fast responsive. I particularly like his work cause he has a strong understanding of how to illustrate and communicate ideas through design. Last but not least Dean has worked voluntarily with us all this time, which speaks volumes for his ethos and character.
