Projects

Contract work:

  • Between 2011 and 2013, we worked with a major entertainment company to develop a custom software solution to automatically evaluate song lyrics for objectionable content.  Our software significantly reduced screening costs and greatly improved turn-around time by eliminating the need to hire contractors to manually parse lyrics.  This software is now available; for more information contact us at web@samarcandanalysics.com.

In addition to the work we do for clients, we have worked on several projects independently or pro bono for nonprofits, some of which will be posted here:

  • 2011 Russian Election Analysis — The 2011 Russian parliamentary election was marked by accusations of vote manipulation and fraud.  Working on a short timeline, we investigated several unusual features in the publicly-available precinct-level election results.
