InfoTrend, Inc. offers for sale software, training and analytic services using the InfoTrend® technologies described below.

  • Conference program planning:  Our novel method for planning conference programs uses a computer algorithm to group similar presentations into sessions.  The method goes on to sequence the sessions to flow naturally from one to the next.  Our method can also be used to place poster presentations into a logical order and to plan seating charts.
  • InfAlign® software:  This software is useful for analyzing information that includes large numbers of characteristics of hundreds of items.  The software can generate InfAlign maps that are suitable for documents that can be distributed online or printed in hard copy.  The software is produced using U.S. patent 7,519,521 and patents pending.
    • Click on the “InfAlign map” tab on the main menu for some sample InfAlign maps including dynamic and interactive visualizations of large tables of items and their properties:
      • Tab “Investment returns” gives an InfAlign map for analyzing returns on financial investments for different time periods.
      • Tab “Hotel bookings” gives an InfAlign map for analyzing hotels and their characteristics including cost, rankings, and geographical locations,
      • Tab “SurveyBias” gives an InfAlign map for a SurveyBias database that is useful for analyzing biases in survey responses.
  • SurveyBias database:  Opinion polls and surveys once used landline surveys as the ideal for representative measurements.  However, this approach has become increasingly problematic.  In response, this website introduces a SurveyBias database for improving sample design.
    • A pilot version of the database and its documentation can be seen by clicking on the “SurveyBias database” tab on the above menu and then “Theory & data” and the tabs underneath to see, in sequence, a series of webpages explaining the database and its use.
  • Computer content analysis of text produced using U.S. patents 7,684,974; 8,606,563 and patents pending.
  • Predicting time trends of public opinions and behaviors from the mass media and social media.
