Since the early 1970's Galileo scientists have applied strict scientific principles to the study of human thought, feeling and action. We believe there is only one scientific method, not one for physical and another for social phenomena. Galileo is a system of theory and methods for studying cognitive and cultural processes scientifically.
Why Galileo ?
Students, faculty and analysts at virtually all universities, colleges and businesses have free access to the major software packages such as SPSS, SAS, and the like, and these usually include text mining and text analysis software, such as SPSS's TextSmart and SAS's Enterprise Miner. So why do these students, faculty and companies pay their own scarce money, even in hard economic times, to buy their own copies of CATPAC II, ThoughtView, Oresme and Galileo?
The answer is simple. Galileo Software is
not like other software. Other text analysis software, for example,
uses elaborate grammatical rules to parse text, break it into parts of
speech, clauses, phrases, and then applies heuristic rules to locate
patterns. Other programs employ templates or patterns of commonly found
phrases and combinations of words based on careful analysis of many
texts by many analysts. What these programs can discover is based on
the theories and research of their developers. Even if the theory is
completely correct for one language, it won't apply to another
language, or even to another dialect within the same language.
Catpac, on the other hand, is a unique proprietary algorithm that does not search for previously noted patterns, nor does it apply any rules from any theory. Instead, its unique neural algorithm learns what patterns are in the text as it reads it, just as a human being would. It's free of theoretical and personal biases, and independent of the language it's reading. It works in Chinese, or in French, or in Hindi as well as it does in English or Spanish. There is nothing like Catpac.
Multidimensional Scaling / Perceptual Mapping
the major software packages contain Multidimensional
Scaling/Perceptual Mapping algorithms, so why
not use these already available packages instead of paying for
the major software packages contain graphics routines that can display
a perceptual map, so why pay to buy ThoughtView
when your company or university already
provides mapping software free? Because only ThoughtView can display
any kind of perceptual map, even non-Euclidean maps. And only
ThoughtView can rotate the space in real time so you can get a clear,
persuasive picture of the depth and positioning of elements in the
