Can our digital footprints - both our own as well as the collective footprints of various demographics, communities, and cultures - reveal anything about human nature?

We have come to rely on technology for most of our day-to-day lives, often spending hours and hours in front of the computer posting to social media, Skyping using the webcams on our laptops, or searching for things on the Internet, all while leaving behind some kind of digital footprint. What can technology tell us about our own ingrained behaviors, belief systems, and views of others? Vasudevan will present work that algorithmically picks apart popular hip-hop lyrics, dissects the amount of hatred found on mainstream social media outlets, and examines the sentiments of the Twittersphere in the thick of the 2016 presidential primaries.
