I was asked to give a fifteen-minute talk on Computational Behavioural Genetics at Europe’s first Computational Social Science conference at the University of Warwick last year. It was recorded for Warwick’s Big Data MOOC, and the organisers, Suzy Moat and Tobias Preis, have kindly allowed us to re-post it here. Thanks, guys!
