Episode 44: The predictive power of metadata

00:0000:00

In this episode I don't talk about data. In fact, I talk about metadata.

While many machine learning models rely on certain amounts of data eg. text, images, audio and video, it has been proved how powerful is the signal carried by metadata, that is all data that is invisible to the end user.
Behind a tweet of 140 characters there are more than 140 fields of data that draw a much more detailed profile of the sender and the content she is producing... without ever considering the tweet itself.
