Hi All -

Our next meetup will be hosted by Bitly ( and focussed on "Social Data in the Fashion Industry: Detecting the Trends". Our speakers will include speakers from the following: ( - Paul Siegel, Data Scientist at Brandwatch, Taking Networks Seriously. Paul became interested in the analysis and geometry of large networks (with applications to data science) while at Columbia, and joined Brandwatch as a data scientist in August 2015. Brandwatch found that over 99% of the conversation on Twitter surrounding luxury fashion was consumer driven, and luxury fashion brands have been slow to keep up. Who is this not-so-silent majority? What communities emerge from the conversation, and how is content distributed through them? I'll describe how network analysis tools from mathematics and computer science can be deployed to answer these questions and others.
