This Sunday, the 4th of November, me and Lucia Dossin will be presenting our workshop "Beerpong or Voltaire?" as part of Culturele Zondag - Utrecht Digitaal.

"Beerpong or Voltaire?" seeks to explain, without the use of computers and to a general audience, how LDA (a topic modeling algorithm used for clustering) can be implemented to infer a user's psychological traits on the basis of her/his Facebook likes.
We will finish the workshop with a discussion around the political, social and economical consequences of these processes and how they might directly impact our daily lives.

Join us either at 13h30, for the 1st session, or at 15h30, for the 2nd session - Hope to see you there!…/utre…/p
