‘Big Data’ – the current next big thing! But what does it look like? In this talk we walk through an example where we collect and analyse the States of Jersey Assembly Hansard Transcripts, turning free text documents into queryable analytics and interactive visualisations.

Find out just what goes on in the States Chamber – because trust me, you dont want to read the transcripts!

Featuring technologies such as HDInsight (Microsoft’s implementation of Hadoop), Python, and Sql Server 2012. This is a technical session where we demonstrate how these technologies can be used to analyse and gain insight from inherently unstructured data.
