Next week the Association of Computing Machinery holds its conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining. The keynote address will be streamed live over the web, at 2pm BST on Mon, Tue and Wed. The following caught my eye. On Tuesday, David Jensen will present on the wide-ranging notion of Computational Social Science, while on Wednesday Konrad Feldman will take an industry perspective on the Quantification of Advertising. Should be interesting. See http://www.kdd.org/kdd2010/video.shtml.
