Measuring Emotional States in RealTime
Our happiness depends on where we are, who we are with, and what we are doing. By analyzing a diverse set of largescale texts which reflect cultural experience, including 50 years of music lyrics, thousands of works of literature, and 50 billion status updates from Twitter, we have built a scientific instrument that quantifies populationscale happiness.

Thematic Semester — June  December 2015
AdS/CFT, holography, integrability
The AntideSitter/Conformal Field Theory (AdS/CFT) correspondence has been dominating research in theoretical highenergy physics for the last 15 years. It posits an exact quantum equivalence between string theory as a theory of quantum gravity on negatively curved spacetimes and certain conformal quantum field theories defined on the boundary of these spacetimes.
