On November 2, 2011Vermont Public Television (VPT) aired “Cyber Shadows”, an episode for there Emerging Science series which is focused on highlighting scientific and technology topics. I had the pleasure of being interviewed for this show and wanted to quickly document it here.
Here is the blurb from the VPT Emerging Science website
As the popularity of social media grows, so does the interest in mining online data for a variety of uses. Today, our digital “fingerprints” can be traced in ways most of us never imagined — for market research, criminal investigations and more. A handful of Vermont scientists are busy analyzing our online behavior as a tool for spotting trends and, ultimately, measuring our emotional well-being.
The research discussed by others in the video was remarkable. I’m very grateful for having the opportunity to contribute to an amazing show.
