Recording the future using social media to predict it (podcast)

This week’s podcast contains a great conversation with Evan Sparks of Recorded Future on this week’s Tradestreaming Radio.

Evan and Recorded Future are working to bring analysis of social media chatter to a whole ‘nother level.  Combining sophisticated linguistical analysis and a solid background in devising investment strategies (Evan worked as a quantitative equity analyst previously), Recorded Future’s platform scans over online sentiment and predicts when specific events should occur in the future.

For example, if I’m sizing up making an investment in Amazon.com ($AMZN) and I know they’re looking to go toe-t0-toe with Netflix’s ($NFLX) DVD rental offering, I could use Recorded Future to handicap the likelihood that $AMZN makes an acquisition in the space and when the Internet expects this to occur (Amazon announced the purchase of a European competitor, LoveFilm, yesterday). Retail investors and institutional money managers are turning to Recorded Future to help them tap the inherent potential value in all the content in the blogosphere.

Check out the podcast below (or if you don’t see it, here).  If you use iTunes, our program can be found here. We’ve also made available all our radio archives, as well.
