DataScouting was happy to be Gold Sponsor of the 6th IEEE Hellenic Students and Young Professionals Congress (HSYP) that took place this weekend (20-21st of November). This year the Congress was organized by the IEEE Greece Section and it was held in a virtual format due to the on-going pandemic. More than 100 students and young professionals attended the Congress.
The HSYP Congress takes place every two years in Greece, Cyprus, Malta and Israel and refers to students, young graduate engineers, and members of the IEEE. It includes talks and discussions and aims at the exchange of ideas and experiences between the participants, the conclusion of collaborations, the appropriate training, and the supply of the members of the student branches for the organization of their local actions but also the information of the new engineers for the needs of the labor market. The Congress’ impact is of great importance for the IEEE organization’s further development.
As Gold Sponsor of the 6th IEEE Hellenic Students and Young Professionals Congress, DataScouting’s Managing Partner, Tom Avramis, delivered a presentation about Why media monitoring matters and the use of new technologies. Tom
- explained what is media monitoring, why it matters to brands, and who is using media monitoring;
- outlined the basics of media intelligence and insights (monitoring and analysis combined);
- described how media monitoring is done and what kind of technologies DataScouting is using as part of its MediaScouting Suite for print, broadcast, online and social media; and
- discussed with participants about the future technology challenges in media intelligence (GPT-3, deepfakes, online video, 5G rollouts, disinformation, fact-checking, subscription-based networks, content behind paywalls).
Participants were keen on hearing from Tom what kind of talent skills is DataScouting looking for, what is DataScouting’s tech stack and kind of projects is the team working on.
