Data Science & Human Behavior:

We built an online resource for scientists studying human behavior to understand and apply new methods, concepts, and techniques from machine-learning, AI, and other computational fields. Many online data-science resources target workers in industry, programmers, and other communities with extensive technical expertise. This library curates resources useful to those who study cognition, perception, action, language, neuroscience, social interactions, and other aspects of human behavior. Feel free to peruse, consume and even contribute: Data Science & Behavioral Library
