As our society continues to navigate the age of “big data,” CNA Research Scientists Justin Ladner and Jared Huff sit down to discuss data scraping. Justin defines data scraping as a computer program designed to visit websites and collect data with speed and accuracy that would be impossible for a human. Jared and Justin discuss the uses of data scraping, including job market analyses, military retention and even house hunting. They also discuss the limitations of data scraping, focusing on the lack of demographic data connected to online posts.
