For a few years, we have been developing algorithms to predict individual attributes like personality traits, political preferences, and demographics. More recently, we have shown that AI combined with social data can predict future behavior - before the users know what their actions will be.
This talk will discuss the cutting edge of user attribute inference, discuss the applications of this work, and address the myriad of privacy concerns that these algorithms provoke.
