I want to take a few minutes this morning to explain to everyone where the Name Genome Project is headed. Instant Recommendations is an important part of the big picture, but it is only one aspect. The full scope of this project is simple:
Because of our wonderful Creatives and Contest Holder, Squadhelp has amassed an unprecedented amount of information on Business and other names (we're approaching 5 Million names). The Name Genome Project is, of course, named after one of the largest learning programs that the world has ever see--and learning more about great names is what our project is all about. This information will be served right back out to our Creatives and Contest Holder, so that both sides are better equipped to reach one goal--awesome names.
One forthcoming aspect of the Name Genome Project is using AI and Machine Learning to enhance communication between Contest Holder and Creative. We intend to use name types and styles to let creatives know what categories of names are being liked most by a CH.
We are also talking about building an Auto-Preference Analysis--which will serve categorized names up to a CH before they launch their contests and ask them which names they like. Preferences would then be analyzed and provided to Creatives. Another concept is to equip Creatives with helpful information before they enter a contest (e.g. Traditional Names win 50% of Real Estate contests).
The possibilities are abundant, and your ideas are always welcome.
