FF Challenge Featured on NPR's Invisibilia Podcast

Friday, Mar 30, 2018

Work from the Fragile Families Challenge was recently featured on NPR's Invisibilia podcast, which combines human interest stories with current scientific research to explore the unseeable forces which control human behavior and shape our ideas, beliefs, and assumptions.

The episode "The Pattern Problem" uses the context of the FF Challenge to explore questions about the predictability or unpredictability of human behavior in an age where algorithms are trying to predict everything.

To listen, visit the Invisibilia webpage.

An abbreviated version of the episode was also featured on NPR's Morning Edition and can be found here.
