About this Event
Data Citizens is a series of in-depth talks by experts in the field of data science on a wide variety of topics including data visualization, big data, artificial intelligence, and predictive analytics. Join us as we welcome Nilam Ram for a talk on Screenomics.
TALK TITLE: Screenomics: A New Venue for Discovering the Dynamics of Digital Life
We have recently developed and forwarded a new approach for capturing, visualizing, and analyzing the unique record of an individual’s everyday digital experiences – screenomics. In our quest to derive knowledge from and understand screenomes – ordered sequences of hundreds of thousands of smartphone and laptop screenshots obtained every five seconds for up to one year – the data have become a playground for learning about computational machinery used to processes images and text, machine learning algorithms, human-labeling of taxonomies, qualitative inquiry, and the tension between N = 1 and N = many approaches. Using a selection of empirical examples, we illustrate how engagement with these new data is reshaping what we know about behavioral change in a wide variety of domains and how we study the person-context transactions that drive individuals’ digital lives.
