Meetup: Distilling Insights from Social Media Using Big Data Technologies

Join us on Tuesday, October 15th at 6:30pm to learn about "Distilling Insights from Social Media Using Big Data Technologies". 

Have you ever wondered what your customers are saying about you in Social media, and the impact it might be having on your business? This session will focus on how Big Data technologies can be used to glean useful and actionable insights from social media data. 

You'll see how data can be ingested and prepped and do text analytics on social data in real time. Using Hadoop, we'll show you how you can store and analyze your large volume of historical social media data and reference data. This talk and demo will provide an introduction to text analytics and how it is used within the IBM Big Data platform for a social media solution.  

This Meetup is FREE.  Food and Beverages will also be provided.

    I was very impressed with the level of detail presented for each use case. It was technical in nature and quite informative, there was no marketing/sales BS. It was time well spent and came back armed with effective analytics tools to experiment with!! Thanks to Vijay/Nicoals. Please send us the pdf file that Vijay was pointing to during the presentation.

    One of the most informative talks I have attended in a long time. The presentation was very clear, setting the context at the high level and then drilling down into the details. Thanks to Vijay and Nico for putting this together. As a solution consultant in this space, I have been exploring and putting together components to solve problems similar to the use cases presented. I am impressed at how BigInsights bundles the core functionality in a easy to use package AND provides add on components that help put together solutions to real-world problems. The applications framework looks powerful and I look forward to exploring the QuickStart edition on my own.

      Hi Prasad, were still targeting to be able to live stream at the end of this year. In the meantime, we have an active Big Data Developer Meetup in Bangalore that might interest you:­

    Hi, Will the presentation be about extracting and storing social media? or about extracting information from the social media already stored?

    October 8, 2013

    • Nicolás M.

      Hi Diego, the presentation will cover extracting and storing social media, but will mostly focus on extracting value and analytics from social media that has been stored.
