There’s a ton of data out there, but what does data really mean? People don’t consume data. We consume knowledge. But how do we get from data to knowledge? How do we navigate a galaxy-wide playing field of information and transform it into useful tools enabling better decisions? It’s not just about big data anymore; it’s about what we do with it.
Zillow grew into a billion-dollar company on the back of big data. In this session, you’ll talk with Zillow Chief Economist Stan Humphries, the man behind the metrics. Stan helped create Zillow’s flagship Zestimate home value – an algorithm consisting of millions of data points – which, for the first time, enabled anyone to find the estimated home value of virtually every home in the United States. Stan’s mission is twofold: To lead a team producing various indices and dozens of metrics; and, critically, to make that data digestible for consumers. Join Stan for a discussion on how companies can, and should, turn big data into big ideas.
