You Can't Hide: Predicting Personal Traits in Social Media
Overview: People share a huge amount of personal information online. With over a billion people on social media, this is opening up new abilities for researchers to predict a range of personal attributes that reveal how we live, think, and interact, even as people may try to keep this information private. This presentation will cover the methods and results in this area and argue for the future science and policy these advances demand.
