Would you like to play a leading role at the Institute for Prediction Technology? Now is your chance!
The UC Institute for Prediction Technology is a research Institute study on how to solve real-world problems at the intersection of psychology, public health/medicine, and technology. It bridges together researchers across University of California campuses to study how social data from social media, wearable devices, and online technologies can be used to predict real-world events in areas like health and medicine, politics, crime, education, and finance. While our work is broadly focused, most of our day-to-day work is with the UCLA Center for Digital Behavior in the UCLA Department of Family Medicine where we study technologies for health and medicine.
