Learning From Billions of News Reading Sessions
Limited Capacity seats available

What can we learn from a one-billion-person live-poll of the Internet? Parse.ly has gathered a unique and massive data set of over 1 billion monthly devices, who collectively perform over 2 million sessions per minute on over 2,500 high-traffic news and information websites. Our team of data scientists and machine learning engineers have used this data to unearth the secrets behind online content. Parse.ly serves 300+ enterprise clients with its real-time analytics platform, but the aggregate data exhaust from these integrations provides a front-row seat to what the Internet is looking at today. We'll discuss, through data and visualizations, how consumer attention in the web era really works. We’ll also showcase how we recently applied modern natural language processing techniques to better understand our data set. Throughout, we’ll describe findings related to news trends, social networks, search engines, and device usage patterns. We’ll even discuss some of our predictions about offline consumer behavior, such as which movies would win at the box office based on the web attention those movies received in weeks prior.

Keynote: Dan Rather: What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism

OR


Summit Badge 
At a moment of crisis over our national identity, venerated journalist Dan Rather has emerged as a voice of reason and integrity, reflecting on—and writing passionately about—what it means to be an American. Looking at the freedoms that define us, from the vote to the press; the values that have transformed us, from empathy to inclusion to service; the institutions that sustain us, such as public education; and the traits that helped form our young country, such as the audacity to take on daunting challenges in science and medicine, Rather brings to bear his decades of experience on the frontlines of the world’s biggest stories. As a living witness to historical change, he offers up an intimate view of history, tracing where we have been in order to help us chart a way forward and heal our bitter divisions.

Pulitzer Prize winner Amy Goldstein has spent years immersed in Janesville, Wisconsin where the nation’s oldest operating General Motors plant shut down in the midst of the Great Recession, two days before Christmas of 2008. Now, with intelligence, sympathy, and insight into what connects and divides people in an era of economic upheaval, she makes one of America’s biggest political issues human. Her reporting takes the reader deep into the lives of autoworkers, educators, bankers, politicians, and job re-trainers to show why it’s so hard in the twenty-first century to recreate a healthy, prosperous working class.
