On Wednesday morning (Nov 23), I'll be giving a keynote talk at the 2016 Israeli Conference on Mechanical Engineering with the title "Research Using Behavioral Big Data: A Tour and Why Mechanical Engineers Should Care". This is the first time I'll be presenting to an audience of mechanical engineers and I see it as an important opportunity to foster collaborations between the designers and creators of "things" and those using the data generated by the "things". Mechanical engineering is also embracing the era of big data and IoT - the theme of the conference is "Mechanical Engineering in the Internet of Things and Big Data Era". We're experiencing the convergence of engineering, data analytics, and the social sciences; it's a good idea to figure out the landscape!
When and Where: Technion (Haifa, Israel) Churchill Building, Wed 23/11, ~10am.
