MIT News at Noon: Devavrat Shah on Twitter trends

Devavrat Shah, Associate Professor in the Development of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, delivers his "News at Noon" talk at the MIT Museum. The event is co-sponsored by the MIT News Office and the Museum, and features researchers discussing their recently promoted work.

On Nov. 9, Shah discussed how he uses his machine-learning algorithm to predict trends hours in advance of recognition by Twitter. Presenters for "News at Noon" are announced each week following an appearance in MIT News.
