Sorry, this event has now ended.

The Data Science Institute is pleased to announce that Dr Suzy Moat, Associate Professor of Behavioural Science at Warwick Business School, will present at the next Advanced Data Analytics Seminar on 17th October 2017. 

Abstract: "Our everyday usage of the Internet generates huge amounts of data on how humans collect and exchange information worldwide. In this talk, I will outline recent work in which she investigates whether data from sources such as Google, Wikipedia, photo sharing sites and online games can be used to gain new insight into real world human behaviour. I will provide case studies from the economic domain and beyond."

Dr Moat's work has touched on areas as diverse as linking on-line behaviour to stock market moves, estimating crowd sizes, and evaluating whether the beauty of the environment we live in might affect our health. Her research has been featured by television, radio and press outlets across the world.
