The Art of the Data Mash-Up

  • Mar 22, 2013 · 12:30 PM
  • USF

Speaker: Jed Kolko, Trulia

It’s not how big your data is; it’s what you can combine your data with. Trulia’s real-estate research combines unique data from our own site with data from government and other sources. This seminar will present examples of Trulia’s data mash-ups and talk about strategies for developing rich, full insights through mash-ups.

Jed Kolko, Chief Economist and Head of Analytics, oversees Trulia's research programs. Applying a background in economic development and research methods, he transforms real estate data, economic trends, and public policy debate into digestible insights for home buyers, sellers and renters. In Jed's prior role as Associate Director and Research Fellow at the Public Policy Institute of California, he led research projects and advised policymakers and business leaders on economic, housing and technology policies. Before his work at PPIC, Jed directed Forrester Research's consumer-technology market research, advising corporate executives on technology adoption and demand. Jed has also held positions at the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (now FHFA), the World Bank and the Progressive Policy Institute. Jed earned his A.B. in social studies and his Ph.D. in economics at Harvard University.

    Not really what I was expecting, but that's no fault of the presenter. Hope other attendees got what they wanted from this week's meetup. More space/chairs were necessary.

    This was a first-rate meetup. I learned quite a bit about how real-world Analytics work in a company like Trulia. I especially liked his distinction of multiple translation levels of Analytics content: from talking points to blog posts to white papers.

    Urgent work came. In general, middle of business day is not a convenient time. Is there any way to move this extremely interesting meetup to some time after 4 or 5 PM ? Will slides/video be available ?
