Speaker: Bryan O'Brien

The web is the world's largest database, with an estimated 15,197,985 petabytes of data, but this vast ocean of data is often not readily accessible for data analysis and product development. Web scraping is the process of turning this unstructured data into usable structured data.

In this talk, we will share with you how to use web scraping to get access to the data you need, how companies are using web data to grow their businesses and gain a competitive edge in the market, the future of AI enabled web scraping, and how you can take the hassle out of building your own web scraping infrastructures.
