Jennie Lees
Associate Product Manager, Google

Website | @jennielees | Attendee Directory Profile

Jennie is a product manager at Google in Mountain View. She was previously the founder of a web 2.0 startup in the UK which focused on getting quantitative intelligence from free-form text published on social media—collective intelligence meets natural language processing.

Jennie holds two Computer Science degrees from the University of Cambridge and left a promising Ph.D. there to pursue her startup ambitions. She first got sucked into the new media world while working as a blogger for AOL Weblogs Inc and has since spoken at various events in the UK including TechCrunch’s Realtime Christmas Crunch.

Jennie gets excited by data, information overload, making meaning from chaos and social games.

This talk is about work done by Jennie outside of her role at Google.
