The Research Team has access to tons of different sources of data -- but sometimes they need access to additional sources. Michael Rechenthin (Dr. Data) explains how the approaches that they use to help capture it.
There are typically three ways that data is collected for use:
1) Download with a link directly from a webpage 2) Through APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) 3) "Scrape" websites with code such as python's Beautiful Soup
Dr. Data then covers each in detail.
While this conversation may not be for everyone, many data science nerds will find it helpful.
