Predictive text
Predictive text is an input technology used where one key or button represents many letters, such as on mobile phones's numeric keypads and in accessibility technologies. Each key press results in a prediction rather than repeatedly sequencing through the same group of "letters" it represents, in the same, invariable order. Predictive text could allow for an entire word to be input by single keypress. Predictive text makes efficient use of fewer device keys to input writing into a text message, an e-mail, an address book, a calendar, and the like.
The most widely used, general, predictive text systems are T9, iTap, and LetterWise/WordWise. There are many unique ways to build a device that predicts text, but all predictive text systems have initial, linguistic settings that offer predictions that are re-prioritized to adapt to each user. This learning adapts, by way of the device memory, to a user's disambiguating feedback that results in corrective key presses, such as pressing a "next" key to get to the intention. Most predictive text systems have a user database to facilitate this process.
Theoretically the number of keystrokes required per desired character in the finished writing is, on average, comparable to using a keyboard. This is approximately true providing that all words used are in its database, punctuation is ignored, and no input mistakes are made typing or spelling. In practice, these factors are found to cause tremendous variance in the efficiency gain. The theoretical keystrokes per character, KSPC, of a keyboard is KSPC=1.00, and of multi-tap is KSPC=2.03. Eatoni' LetterWise is a predictive multi-tap hybrid, which when operating on a standard telephone keypad achieves KSPC=1.15 for English.
The choice of which predictive text system is the best to use involves matching the user's preferred interface style, the user's level of learned ability to operate predictive text software, and the user's efficiency goal. There are various levels of risk in predictive text systems, versus multi-tap systems, because the predicted text that is automatically written that provide the speed and mechanical efficiency benefit, could, if the user is not careful to review, result in transmitting misinformation. Predictive text systems take time to learn to use well, and so generally, a device's system has user options to set up the choice of multi-tap or of any one of several schools of predictive text methods.

Is the BBC biased?: Predictive text
Given Radio 4's religious current affairs programme Sunday's tendency to report certain kinds of stories and not report others, it might be a fruitful experiment to see what topics it covers tomorrow morning and make some predictions. A blogger who senses bias should be able to predict in advance what sorts of story won't get covered, even though they should be covered.

Analytical Worlds Blog – Predictive Analytics and Text Analytics – by Eric Siegel, Ph.D. » The Most Content About Predictive Analytics I Could Jam into 300 Pages
Have you checked out the detailed table of contents for my book, Predictive Analytics: The Power to Predict Who Will Click, Buy, Lie, or Die? Predictive Analytics Table of Contents Foreword Thomas H. Davenport xiii Preface What is the occupational hazard of predictive analytics? xv Introduction The Prediction Effect How does predicting human behavior combat risk, fortify healthcare, toughen crime fighting, and boost sales? Why must a computer learn in order to predict? How can lousy predictions be extremely valuable? What makes data exceptionally exciting? How is data science like porn? Why shouldn't computers be called computers? Why do organizations predict when you will die? 1 Chapter 1 Liftoff! Prediction Takes Action (deployment) How much guts does it take to deploy a predictive model into field operation, and what do you stand to gain? What happens when a man invests his entire life savings into his own predictive stock market trading system? 17 Chapter 2 With Power Comes Responsibility: Hewlett-Packard, Target, and the Police Deduce Your Secrets (ethics) How do we safely harness a predictive machine that can foresee job resignation, pregnancy, and crime? Are civil liberties at risk? Why does one leading health insurance company predict policy holder death? An extended sidebar on fraud detection addresses the question: how does machine intelligence flip the meaning of fraud on its head? 37 Chapter 3 The Data Effect: A Glut at the End of the Rainbow (data) We are up to our ears in data, but how much can this raw material really tell us? What actually makes it predictive? Does existing data go so far as to reveal the collective mood of the human populace? If yes, how does our emotional online chatter relate to the economy's ups and downs? 67 Color Book Insert 147 Examples of Predictive Analytics A cross-industry compendium of 147 mini-case studies in predictive analytics, divided by vertical: Personal Life Marketing Finance Healthcare Crime Fighting and Fraud Detection Reliability Modeling Government and Nonprofit Human Language and Thought Human Resources Chapter 4 The Machine That Learns: A Look Inside Chase's Prediction of Mortgage Risk (modeling) What form of risk has the perfect disguise? How does prediction transform risk to opportunity? What should all businesses learn from insurance companies? Why does machine learning require art in addition to science? What kind of predictive model can be understood by everyone? How can we confidently trust a machine's predictions? Why couldn't prediction prevent the global financial crisis? 103 Chapter 5 The Ensemble Effect: Netflix, Crowdsourcing, and Supercharging Prediction (ensembles) To crowdsource predictive analytics—outsource it to the public at large—a company launches its strategy, data, and research discoveries into the public spotlight.
