Our speaker this month will be radio personality Jimmy Preston, host of 100 Proof Radio on KTSW 89.9FM and producer at Double Punch Kick Productions.
Jimmy will be speaking to us about Austin Police Department partnering with local company Snap Trends to monitor social media aggregate data. Snap Trends says they created this software “to serve public safety organization [sic] and national intelligence agencies in the United States.” They state that their technology “builds a clear view of social conversations when and where they occur, the influencers driving them, and why.”
