"Ah, people make stupid choices. How can I help them?"

If you feel the similar thing in your daily life, the HIVE Lab is your right place. We use various cutting-edge technologies (e.g., data visualization and text mining) to help people make better choices, from choosing a meal for heart patients to making sense of thousands of on-line review at a glance, and try to understand underlying mechanisms of how people make decisions.

If you are interested, please come to our ReadingSeminar. You can learn what kinds of research we do and meet other students with similar interests.

We do NOT require any skills in computer programming, statistical analysis, or research experiences. It is obviously good to have them. But, we learned that you can learn very quickly if you are determined to do. Surely, we will help you.
