Talk title:
Challenges in extracting web data for academic research
29th Sep
2:30 pm
Who should attend: Data extraction nerds
What you will learn: The trade-offs and challenges of matching data extraction scale to quality.
This talk is for all of us data geeks! It offers an academic perspective on the pillars of web data extraction.

Researchers in marketing alone rely on web data in 20% of their studies (others are more traditional datasets, such as those purchased from data and analytics companies like Nielsen or IRI).

In this presentation Professor Datta reflects upon what scalability and accessibility mean to the large community of academic researchers and how trade-offs in scalability and accessibility directly affect data quality.
For academic researchers data quality is a primary concern and this talk highlights the qualitative challenges researchers face when extracting web data.

For industry attendees this may help to find ways to recognize and solve these data quality challenges. 

Professor Datta's work on web data - coauthored with scholars from Rotterdam School of Management, INSEAD, and the University of Oxford - is expected to generate a lot of attention in the academic community.
