This is a very quick and simple initial project for someone who actually uses Statistica Automated Neural Networks (SANN) regularly and has access to the Statistica 13.0 Enterprise version which allows uploading of data to be run on Statistica's servers.
I am looking for someone to upload 15 data mining models and run them for me on Statistica's server (Enterprise version is required) OR for someone with access to Statistica running on a very fast mini/mainframe computer. The data and all of the SANN presets (model input/output types, min/max neurons etc.) will be supplied. If you know what you are doing, it should not take more than 2 minutes per model each time you upload the data, adjust the SANN presets, and run the model. I am looking at a models-to-train number around the 100,000 to 1,000,000 and retaining perhaps the best 100 or so models. Currently, my PC only does 60,000 in 24 hours which is far too slow for my needs. After the run has been completed, I need you to send me an Excel spreadsheet with all of the various output results Statistica normally provides.
You must be very familiar with Statistica 13.0. If you are not, please do not bid. Any bids that do not specifically mention "Statistica 13.0" in them will be automatically rejected. If you are serious about bidding, please do not use a pre-set response that does not refer to the project requirements as it is likely to be rejected.
There is an opportunity here for additional pay on a per model basis (we can discuss the per model price after this project is completed) over the next few months as I will need to run models on an ongoing basis. I am thinking in the range of $1 - $5 per run
over the long term with potentially hundreds of runs required.
I am looking for the fastest results thereby giving me the most trained models in as short a time as possible. As a test of your overall speed, and so I can compare your ability and hardware setup to other bidders, I will supply select bidders with a very simple model to run using all default settings in SANN, including the same random seed values, and we will see how long it takes you to return just the predicted values to me.
I am looking to pay around $15-20 USD / hour for your time (both now and for future projects) including all model setup time and sending me the output I need. From my experience setting up the models in Statistica and saving the output, it takes me about 5-8 minutes per model excluding computing time which means 15 models can be done at 8 minutes each in about 120 minutes. At $30 USD for this project, that is at least $15 USD per hour.
