Twitter #DataGrants award to UC San Diego and CUNY to measure happiness from tweeted images in U.S. cities

A team of researchers from the University of California, San Diego and The Graduate Center, City University of New York (CUNY) is one of only six groups to win one of Twitter’s inaugural #DataGrants. To do so, they beat out more than 1,300 rival proposals from around the world. A 2012 Ph.D. from ECE, Mehrdad Yazdani, is the PI for the joint QI/CUNY team.
