We'll have five presenters, the first three of which will be members of Professor Sandy Pentland's Human Dynamics group, who are hosting us at the Media Lab. (Thanks!)? From their site: "We have invented the technology of reality mining, which uses sensor data to extract subtle patterns that predict future human behavior."

1. Nadav Aharony -- presenting a talk on the "Friends and Family" study, using Android phones to measure the personal and social lives of people in graduate housing communities.
2. Anmol Madan -- will be presenting the group's latest reality mining study, themed around "social exposure."

5. And finally, Matt Cornell, presenting his ideas on "The Experiment Driven Life" (http://bit.ly/9htKwi)--
an article he wrote, inspired by QS founder Gary Wolf's New York Times article, The Data-Driven Life. He'll be basing his talk from work he's done on his site "Think, Try, Learn" (http://edison.thinktrylearn.com/
