Discovering Dark Knowledge in the Social Web

A session at Lone Star PHP 2017

Friday 21st April, 2017

1:00pm to 1:50pm (CST)

It used to be that crawling social media required some creative coding, a deep understanding of links and relationships, and a finely tuned BS detector. With machine learning becoming common place, it turns out you only need the first two.

Considering information in isolation never gives us a complete picture. As we supplement what we know with what we discover with what inferences and patterns our models can detect, what we know and what we KNOW becomes starkly different.

In this session, we'll dive into a multi-year project that has used social media and other public data sources to uncover hiring patterns, stealth startups, and even pending legal action.
