Symposium on Machine Learning and Human Behavior

March 10, 2017 @ 1:15 pm - 6:00 pm


Machine Learning and Human Behavior Symposium

The last few years have seen an avalanche of new data sources providing scientists with a unique opportunity to study human behavior. In fact, much of the data now labeled as “Big Data” is generated by us, humans, as a result of our interactions with other people and our technologies. As we incessantly, tweet, email, or make online purchases, we also create new and insightful datasets.

This symposium is meant to bring together leading researchers from machine learning and the social sciences, each working at the interface between these disciplines to help us understand new opportunities and methodologies for better predicting human behavior.

Date: Friday, March 10, 2017
Time: 1:15  – 6:00 p.m.
Location: Calit2 Auditorium, UCI. Parking is $10 in the Anteater Parking Structure (directions)
