Grant Accepted

Our MRI grant with Kostas Daniliidis (and Dani Bassett, Erol Akcay, David White, Jianbo Shi, and others) was accepted! What started as a mad dream sketched on scratch paper is now an NSF funded project which is already well underway.

For those who don’t know, we hope to use computer vision and audio recording to track behavior in real time, allowing for large scale analysis of social behavior and online manipulation. Thanks to everyone for your continued support of this project. Read more about it here:
