A. Farseev and T.-S. Chua. Tweet can be Fit: Integrating Data from Wearable Sensors and Multiple Social Networks for Wellness Profile Learning ACM Transactions on Information Systems (TOIS), 2017. 17 January 2019

Wellness is a widely popular concept that is commonly applied to fitness and self-help products or services. Inference of personal wellness-related attributes, such as Body Mass Index (BMI) category or diseases tendency, as well as understanding of global dependencies between wellness attributes and users’ behavior is of crucial importance to various applications in personal and public wellness domains. At the same time, the emergence of social media platforms and wearable sensors makes it feasible to perform wellness profiling for users from multiple perspectives. However, research efforts on wellness profiling and integration of social media and sensor data are relatively sparse, and this study represents one of the first attempts in this direction. Specifically, we infer personal wellness attributes by utilizing our proposed multi-source multitask wellness profile learning framework — “WellMTL”, which can handle data incompleteness and perform wellness attributes inference from sensor and social media data simultaneously. To gain insights into the data at a global level, we also examine correlations between first-order data representations and personal wellness attributes. Our experimental results show that the integration of sensor data and multiple social media sources can substantially boost the performance of individual wellness profiling.

An algorithm that predicts relationship status with 86 per cent accuracy has decided President Trump is single 16 January 2019

President Donald Trump’s erratic Twitter habits led a sophisticated computer algorithm to conclude that he lives “like a bachelor”.

The artificial intelligence system, which is used to predict the marital status of social media accounts and claims to have an 86 per cent accuracy rate, identified Mr Trump as “not married”.

AI pegged Trump as a single guy based on his Twitter habits 16 January 2019

President Trump’s Twitter habits fooled Russian scientists into thinking he was a single guy, according to a new study.

Researchers from Information Technology, Optical Design and Engineering University in Saint Petersburg used artificial intelligence trained to determine a person’s marital status based on their social media use on tweets by Trump and former President Obama.
