Project 10 is expected to be the last formal project of varocarbas.com. I will continue using this site as my main self-promotional R&D-focused online resource, but by relying on other more adequate formats like domain ranking.
Note that the last versions of all the successfully completed projects (5 to 10) will always be available.

Project 9 in full-screenProject 9 in PDF

I have been actively involved in numerical modelling and data analysis during the last quite a few years. Nevertheless, most of my work has been focused on models dealing with a very specific subset of problems where typical big-data concerns rarely represent an issue. To know more about my background, visit the next section.

Since some time ago, I have been witnessing (big-)data-related situations whose outputs might be easily improved in a relevant way. Curiously, big data is a very commercially-appealing reality, what is usually associated with high availability of resources.

There are two issues which can be considered the ultimate responsible of this project:
  • Online information misusage. Virtually all the relevant websites systematically horde and, what is even worse, don't maximise huge amounts of information. A descriptive example of such behaviours is target advertisement, an activity involving relevant amounts of money and valuable information but rarely delivering high accuracy.
  • Data-analysis work opportunities. I (i.e., Alvaro Carballo Garcia, a self-employed programmer using the commercial name Custom Solvers 2.0) am permanently looking for new appealing remote-work opportunities: online challenges, open R&D calls, collaborative environments and, in general, any alternative adequately-rewarding my work. Projects related to (big) data analysis/forecasting definitively belong to the compatible-with-my-skills group. Hence, I also have a personal interest in the way in which big data analysis is being managed.
