Visualizing the City

Google Streetview now provides an enormously rich picture of the physical streetscapes of the world's cities. Advances in computer recognition techniques make it possible to use images to predict local demographics or the curb appeal of particular places. We show how the combination of Google Streetview and computer vision techniques can map the patterns of neighborhood in six American cities. We also use these methods to predict...

Transporting established insights from classical experimental design to address causal questions in environmental epidemiology, including the understanding of biological mediating mechanisms

There is a fundamental gap in addressing causality in observational studies due to missing data, lack of randomization, and complications due to temporality. Measures of association are not optimal for making relevant policy recommendations because these involve...
