Quid is a next-generation strategy and intelligence tool. We apply Natural Langauge Processing and Machine Learning to unstructured data to create data visualizations. These visualizations are meant to help users understand unstructured text data so that they can make better decisions for their clients, shareholders, customers, etc. Quid is hosting these Lightning Talks to empower women in the Big Data community.
