Analytics Talk: Peter Skomoroch
Developing Data Products
This talk will cover examples, techniques, and lessons learned building data products over the last 3 years at LinkedIn. I'll describe how we combined information extraction, crowd sourcing, and external datasets to build LinkedIn Skills. We'll also discuss best practices for designing, shipping and iterating on data products.
Pete Skomoroch is a Principal Data Scientist at LinkedIn where he leads a team focused on creating data products like InMaps, LinkedIn Skills, and Endorsements. His team also drives LinkedIn's work on the Economic Graph, which analyzes professional data to better understand skills, employment, and the economy.
