  • Max Yankelevich

Thursday 1st March, 2012

2:20pm to 3:00pm (PST)

The founder and CEO of CrowdControl Software, Max Yankelevich is going to explore new ways to solve big data problems involving crowdsourcing. He will define crowdsourcing and the common barriers to applying it to Big Data. Everyone knows managing the crowd can be a nightmare given the complexity involved and the quality issues that arise. Many companies focus on the quantity of data when often times it’s the quality that really matters. Through years of research at MIT and in collaboration with Amazon Mechanical Turk, Yankelevich has created an artificial intelligence application that maximizes the quality of crowdsourced work at scale. He will cover specifc company use cases for collecting, controlling, correcting and enriching data. From startups to Fortune 500 companies, this new methodology is transforming data driven businesses. Its applications range from human sentiment analysis to keeping business listings up to date.
