Data Science goes to Hollywood
June 20, 2016 @ 6:30 pm
Todd Holloway, Director of Content Science & Algorithms, Netflix
6:30 Doors Open, Food & Networking
Netflix will spend six billion dollars this year on content, making the company a major player in Hollywood. An increasing portion of this spend will be on original shows such as House of Cards, and original movies such as Beasts of No Nation. As we continue to expand our involvement with Hollywood, we want to leverage data and data science to make the best decisions possible. This talk will explore areas where we see the most opportunity to apply data science to Hollywood, and some early approaches we’ve taken.
Todd Holloway is a data scientist at Netflix, has previously led the data science team at Trulia, lectured at UC Berkeley, and worked at Amazon, AT&T, TheFind. https://www.linkedin.com/in/toddmholloway
