Talk title:
Spidermatch: Harnessing Machine Learning And OpenStreetMap To Validate And Enrich Scraped Location Data


In This Session, Jimbo Freedman Will Take You On A Journey Into The Fascinating World Of Data Scraping. He Will Demonstrate How Advanced Technologies Such As Machine Learning And OpenStreetMap Can Be Effectively Combined To Validate And Enrich Scraped Location Data.

The Presentation Will Spotlight Three Features:

·  Intelligent Data Scraping: Leveraging population data for smart search optimization, their system reduces request volume by over 80%, focusing on high-yield locations instead of global scanning.

·  OpenStreetMap Integration: Utilizing a Siamese Neural Network, their approach matches scraped data with OpenStreetMap, suggesting potential matches when data, like names or addresses, is missing.

·  Enhanced Scraping with ML: Their recent implementation of machine learning techniques, akin to the Automatic Data Extraction API but for locations, shows early signs of success, improving the scraping process.
