Janet Wiener talks about the Chorus of Facebook conversations – the aggregated, anonymized voice of the people – which leads to incredible insights. To do that, Facebook built a data pipeline that produces visual graphs within 10 seconds of content production. Wiener describes how they extract the Chorus in real time.
