CAPS Town Hall presents: Lindsay Young, PhD -- Social Network Analysis and Machine Learning: Computational Partners in the Study of HIV Prevention and Risk Online
As transmitters of information and progenitors of behavioral norms, social networks are critical mechanisms of HIV prevention and risk in impacted populations like men who have sex with men (MSM), people who inject drugs (PWID), and homeless youth. Today, widespread use of online social networking technologies (e.g., Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) yield unprecedented amounts of relational and communication data far richer than anything previously collected in offline (physical) network settings.
