Abstract

The increasing quantity of open data worldwide gives us tremendous opportunities to learn about behaviors, construct models of them, and eventually, help shape them so that they meet our needs. In a broad overview of data-driven applications that have been built in my lab over the last few years, I will provide a detailed description of how new methods developed at Maryland have helped learn models, predict future behaviors, and help shape these behaviors to better meet our goals. The talk will be presented as a suite of brief case studies involving counter-terrorism,  systemic banking crises, elections, and anti-poaching efforts.

This talk is organized by Savannah Renehan
