Often data doesn’t come in nice neat columns and rows. This session will give you a practical understanding of how to approach information that comes in inconvenient, unstructured forms: tweets, e-mails, reports, videos and other records. We will walk through several examples of reports that have analyzed unstructured data and talk about conceptual and concrete techniques to work with your data. We will provide an online tip sheet with pointers to further tools.
