Project description

Analyzing large sets of data to form multi-relational mappings of a sample population to determine how a market is influenced. This project's goal is to statistically determine what drives the complex multifaceted decisions within a system by using empirical data. These decisions are usually a mix of topocratic and meritocratic influences, but there is currently no way to determine what has the greatest influence and how. Currently we are focusing on analyzing data released by academic journal review boards, so we can determine the influences behind the selection and identify any unfair bias.
