Dark Data

27th September 2016 in London at CodeNode

This SkillsCast was filmed at Dark Data

Companies currently collect vast swathes of data; some is analysed, much isn’t. The stuff that isn’t analysed is Dark. Clearly the name has its origins in the term “Dark Matter”. Dark Data, like dark matter, is invisible (at least in the analytical universe) but that doesn’t stop it significantly affecting virtually all the analyses that we perform. This talk will introduce three flavours of dark data and talk about how an understanding of them can help us to perform better analysis.
