As a post-doctoral researcher at the University of British Columbia, Gabriel worked for several years on the NSERC-funded Business Intelligence Network (BIN) project. From the project website:
“NSERC BIN aims to enhance Canadian business competitiveness through the development of intelligent data management and decision-making solutions. Business Intelligence has to move from the silos of finance, accounting, marketing, customer care and inventory management to become an integral part of business operations, driving business decisions using information sources across the entire corporation.”
Gabriel worked on natural language processing and text mining for this project, with the aim of turning organizations’ unstructured text data into valuable assets.
