Hi, I'm Dan Calacci.
I'm a graduate student and research assistant at the Human Dynamics group at the MIT Media Lab.
My current work merges social science and artificial intelligence. I'm interested in how our biases -- racism, sexism, cultural stereotypes -- affect how well groups of people are able to solve problems, and how we can build systems using A.I. to help fight our worst impulses.
In the past, I've worked on measuring social segregation in cities, personalized deep learning models that predict your happiness using social interactions, measuring behavioral health using mobile phones, discovering political framing automatically using machine learning, inferring the hidden networks that relate congresspeople, and an interface to control up to 12 autonomous boats.
