USC Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society presents
Dr. Ian  Holloway

Dr. Holloway’s presentation will outline the development of a culturally congruent data collection and mining module (DCMM) to study the social networking site (SNS) use patterns, substance use and HIV risk and protective behaviors of gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (MSM). Data gathered through the DCMM will be used to inform just-in-time adaptive interventions to prevent incidence of new HIV cases among this population disproportionately impacted by HIV/AIDS.
