3:55 PANEL: The Data Preparation Cycle from Exploration to Acquisition to Feature Engineering

Big Data is proving its value in many application areas. But what can you do when you don’t have a large data set? Or when you have a large amount of data, but not much labeled data in the domain of the prediction you need to model? This panel considers the potential of data exploration, feature selection/creation, and non-supervised machine learning to deliver value when relevant labeled data is scarce.
