Contemporary Analysis (CAN) and Cabri Group and have teamed up to use Machine Learning to predict the upsets for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. By demonstrating the power of ML through our results, we believe more people can give direction to their ML projects.

As a predictive analytics team, we at CAN take the science behind Big Data very seriously, but that doesn't mean that our whole process is centered around the software we create. In fact, we prioritize our relationships with our customers on a human level, and do our best to educate them about what we do best: data. The following article is an educational piece for our customers to learn more about CAN and CAN's process.
Investing in employees means more than just treating them well by giving them benefits and a flexible schedule. It means putting time and resources into individuals who have potential for greatness, but may need a little guidance.
Contemporary Analysis (CAN) is recognized nationally as a leader in the data science field and is regularly asked to "Spread the Good Word of Predictive Analytics" by presenting on various topics at conferences around the US.

Recently, Contemporary Analysis (CAN) was asked by the Indianapolis Business Journal to weigh in on how Predictive Analytics is changing the marketing space. We believe by combining predictive analytics and marketing, called contextualized marketing, marketing can move closer to the holy grail of one person, one sale. Most companies do this by purchasing a software--it's dactyl, most companies have a line item in their budget, and it gives a third-party marketing company reoccurring revenue. While CAN itself doesn't have a piece of software to sell, we believe that contextualized marketing is the right move for companies and that those with the edge are "the ones using data scientists to predict who inside of a group of people have the propensity to buy.”
There is something very strange about Contemporary Analysis. It’s not something that can be easily identified or quantified. People have often remarked on the fact that we are different even though they weren’t able to put their finger on what exactly made us different.
