Café Scientifique: Computing Communities

6 September, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Discover social science on a massive scale, powered by machine learning.

Studying how people interact in communities is complex and difficult. Scale up to a community the size of the US political system, and the detail is overwhelming.

Using computers that learn for themselves, Hanna Wallach is unpicking the patterns of massive social structures, crunching Big Data for insights into how we interact.

Dr Hanna Wallach is a researcher at Microsoft Research in New York City and an assistant professor at the University of Massachusetts.

A Café Scientifique is an informal dialogue-based event with a scientist. A short talk by the speaker is followed by audience questions, an interactive activity and discussion for the rest of the event
