Announcing the May Web Analytics Meetup!
The date is May 2 - Networking starts at 6:30, presentation at 7pm on the topic of "Crossing the Language Chasm: Extracting Information from Foreign-Language Text" by Meta Brown.
Here's a summary of the presentation topic:
Just a few years ago, text analytics was unknown to most business
people, even most data analysts. With the rise of social media, more and
more organizations are not only aware of text analytics, but trying it
themselves. Increasing awareness brings expanding expectations:
identifying the subject matter of text isn’t enough, the pressure is on
to identify sentiment, to find significance in tiny snips of text, to
mine massive quantities of text in real time, and to analyze text
written in languages that the analyst cannot read.

The location is Thoughtworks 200 E. Randolph - 25th Floor. Attendees
need to register with first and last name, and Thoughtworks needs a list
to provide to security. Entrance is through the lower=level plaza on the
south side of the building - that's Randolph Street.
Hope to see you there!
