CLEARWATER, Florida, October 17, 2017.
Intellectus Statistics announced patent approval for its data-to-text software application. “Education statistical software hadn’t changed much in 40 years, survey company’s analytics reduce analyses to descriptive statistics and contingency tables, and healthcare, human resources, and a dozen other vertical markets have non-existent automated, real-time analyses and reporting” says CEO James Lani. Given the enormous needs in the marketplace, Intellectus Statistics’™ (US Patent No. 9,792,283) innovative tool contributes to a long history of educational and data science technologies and solves these deficiencies.
Intellectus Statistics’ invention is the system of preprocessing of data, automated interpreting of raw output, the reporting of findings in English prose, providing an editable narrative in Word or PowerPoint. “Intellectus is currently used in educational institutions, and can be seamlessly integrated into survey platforms, and customized for industry-specific analyses and reporting needs,” stated Melissa Moran, Intellectus’ President.
Intellectus Statistics first application is the educational market. Intellectus uses Amazon’s scalable servers that can assist millions of US students (and tens of millions of students globally) who are non-statistics majors, who struggle with quantitative analyses, yet are required to take a research methods or statistics course, or write a thesis or dissertation; thus, must interact with a statistics package. While universities adapted to legacy software when there was no other option—Intellectus Statistics took a different approach. “After 22 years of helping students with statistics and research methods, Intellectus' team and I understood how students learn then developed a customized, comprehensive, cloud-based statistics application specifically for them” stated Dr. Lani.
Student and faculty love the statistics app. Dr. Allyn Byars of Angelo State University stated “My students preferred Intellectus over SPSS. Even though they have free access to SPSS, they would rather not have to struggle with the [SPSS] program. Plus, the explanations of the statistics have been of great assistance and of course they love the tables, figures, and having it presented in APA format.”
Dr. Julito Pabriga, Dean in the College of Business stated, “As a graduate school professor handling research I have recommended Intellectus as the tool of choice. They found it very easy to understand and have learned a lot on how results are analyzed and interpreted-the Intellectus way!”
Intellectus Statistics’ features interpreted output, automated dummy coding, automated preloaded assumptions, automated preloaded post-hoc test, scroll-over tips and a glossary of what terms and symbols mean, raw output, APA tables, and auto-filled research questions and hypotheses (for a full list visit: http://www.intellectusstatistics.com/intellectus-statistics-features/).
Dr. Lani stated “independent studies currently being conducted will assess the speed of students conducting, accurately interpreting, and drafting results, increases in student confidence and improved attitudes towards statistics, and improved student achievement.” Intellectus seeks to change the way statistics and quantitative analyses are taught in higher education—seeing what they've done, it seems it's just the beginning for them.
