    The worst. It remains unclear if this contractor is knowledgeable enough to run a complete scam of accepting jobs where he can B.S. his way through $90 billable hours as long as he can OR if he is just completely incompetent. In not ascribing malice of intent, I am leaning toward the latter: completely incompetent. For my job, he has a tool (Weka) that he doesn't fully know how to use and has ZERO knowledge about how to interpret results. No interpretation of results? Nothing useful. Produce 1000 pages of numbers w/o any coherent story? Useless. The definition of a cubicle-dwelling novice. Despite my efforts of communication, I could not get this project on track. I let this job go on longer than it should have. Did he produce 'data analysis'? Yes. Was it worth even $0.01? No.

    Firstly, this client was difficult from the start, giving unclear instructions. I repeatedly requested more information on what he wanted. I provided the mathematical relationship described. Secondly, I have two master degrees in robotics and my work history includes multiple jobs in data mining. I have designed several data mining algo from scratch (e.g., Tree Search algorithm, K nearest neighbour algorithm as well as fuzzy logics) for big companies like AXA insurance. So saying I'm a scam is insulting and totally unjustified. To overview, this client suggested using Weka software and I agreed as it gave a quicker and, therefore, cheaper way to answer his questions. I then identified odd sampling, pre-processed his data, filtered the data in different ways and so on. I provided autocorrelation relationships between independent variables as well as mathematical modelling (where I basically had to differentiate from dependent variables myself due to lack of explanation). Time series forecast with a detailed tree structure on the dependent variables were also provided with demonstration of random interactions across the variables. Fundamentally, this client did not want to pay for a research report and so he was provided with the results instead, which he had paid for. Clearly he was not happy with this, even though these detailed results gave the percentage accuracy of analysis, detailed linear equation relationships, as well as the best possible forecasting over multiple algorithms. Despite the small database, significant patterns in the relationship between variables was still identified (including time independent relationships via linear regression and time dependent patterns for a specific dependent variable based on its history). This client appeared to have limited understanding or patience for the time required to pre-process and analyse data, run algorithms, and compile reports. Due to ongoing complaints on time spent on data processing, I decided to just provide the results. At no charge I gave instruction on how to read the results. If he wanted the next step

    Excellent pro ! Will work again with William for sure. He is extremely persistent and competent. we had regular skype meeting and he is not the guy to hide problem but he is a crazy problem solver. Go with him !
