    Hillary Mason "Understanding the World in Realtime"


    Abstract:
    More communication than ever before is happening online, and for the first time, much of that data is available to be analyzed. Bitly began as a simple URL shortener and has evolved into a content sharing and analytics platform spanning the social web, with tens of millions of URLs and hundreds of millions of clicks on those URLs daily. I'll discuss the kinds of questions that we ask and the pieces that we need to find answers, which draw from many disciplines (machine learning, sociology, and engineering, to name a few), and discuss the big questions afforded by this kind of data.

    This talk was given February 3, 2012.
