Tilburg center for Cognition and Communication (TiCC)

We study how people communicate with each other and how computer systems can be taught to communicate with us.


TiCC Colloquium: Gerasimos Spanakis

What: "Teaching people how to eat healthier: There is an app for that?"
Where: PZ 45
When: Wednesday, 25 January 2017, 12:45 - 13:45 hours


In this talk I will cover some aspects of the interdisciplinary area of data science through the paradigm (and the experience) of Think Slim project. After a small overview of the mobile application used for collecting data, the next part will seek the answer to the question of correlation versus causality and provide a network modelling approach. Cognitions in regard to eating are also analysed using a Biterm Topic Model (BTM) for short texts. Finally, the last part of the presentation will focus on how to use machine learning in a simple way to give you answers and solutions to a prediction problem from longitudinal data.
