Peter Dodds on Two National Podcasts and Big Press for The Hedonometer

Reply-allIn episode #168 of popular podcast “Reply All,” co-hosts Alex Goldman and PJ Vogt take a look at the Hedonometer and speak with Peter Dodds, professor and co-director of UVM’s Computational Story Lab, about our happiness — and sadness — over time. Data from the Hedonometer reveals that May 31, five days after the killing of George Floyd, was the saddest day ever recorded by the Hedonometer. January 6, the day that insurrectionists stormed the U.S. Capitol, marks another dive in global wellbeing.

Dodds also spoke about Text-Based Timeline Analysis & New Instruments for The Science of Stories on episode #48 of Complexity, a podcast produced by the Santa Fe Institute.

Art and AI

Dancing_Stars_Old_Mill_2_JKarson_2018-784x1024A team from UVM got help from the Northeast Cybterteam to develop an AI-enabled tool for creating digital artworksJenn Karson, lecturer at the University of Vermont’s Department of Art and Art History and the director of the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences digital fabrication lab (the UVM CEMS FabLab), helms the team.

Work began in February 2020 and has so far included five UVM students: two graduate students in data science, an undergraduate mechanical engineering student, and two undergraduate art minors, as well a UVM alumna who did her undergraduate degree in Studio Art and is now at Parsons School of Design. The CEMS students involved are:

  • Ethan Davis, M.S. Data Science ’21 
  • Sarah Pell, M.S. Data Science ’20 
  • Fred Sanford, B.S. Mechanical Engineering ’20 

Stay tuned for more as this exciting tool develops!
