Getting a Brontobyte of information from HP Discover

Sometimes, when someone doesn’t understand a story, we say, “I guess you had to be there.” That’s very true for HP Discover. It is only after coming to the conference and being physically present here that the sheer magnitude—both of the event and of the information available to attendees—hits me.  Just think about it: 9000 attendees, 208 demos,  and 21,367 attendees signed up to 397 sessions.  Makes me wonder how large this blob of information could be? Is it a gigabyte? Or, a terabyte? A petabyte? An exabyte? A zettabyte? A yottabyte? Or, a brontobyte?

Sentiment analysis should not be a one-time activity

So, here I am watching with great interest, two candidates furiously debating weeks before the upcoming election for public office.  The channel I am watching has a real-time feed at the bottom of the TV screen that represents the feelings of the male and female "undecided" voters on a position taken by either candidate.  You can see the colored lines for men and women going in waves at various points in the debate with the sentiments changing in real time.  However, these sentiments are captured only for a particular period of time.  When the debate is over, the sentiment is no longer visible.  I wish we had the ability to capture the sentiments on a sustained basis at any point in time across a wide geography.  I am sure the candidates would like this too!
