IBM makes big data easy for the little guy

This a good article on how IBM is using its sentiment analysis tool to predict how a movie will do.  

“Last month, the University of Southern California’s Annenberg Innovation Lab unveiled its Film Forecaster, a tool that tries to predict upcoming blockbusters by the amount of buzz around a movie on Twitter. It’s not the only one of its kind; others like Boxoffice.com have also been tapping Facebook and Twitter data to predict movie success.”
