My name is Tim Weninger; I am the Frank M. Freimann Collegiate Professor of Engineering and Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering in the College of Engineering at the University of Notre Dame.
I am also affiliated with the Lucy Family Institute for Data and Society, the Pulte Institute for Global Development, and the Technology Ethics Center.
My research is in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and social media (and artificial intelligence on social media). Generally speaking, I am interested in how humans consume and curate information..
