BDPA Disclaimer and Privacy Policy


Big Data in Psychological Assessment (BDPA) is an interdisciplinary and international project with the goal to better connect the worlds of psychology and computer science. Within this project, the project partners develop intellectual outputs to five broad topics that aim at introducing students to the world of work in the 21th century. Students learn to understand the processes behind machine learning and its advantages as well as pitfalls such as potential biases and ethical issues. This ERASMUS+ founded project will generate free and easy to adapt learning modules that teachers can use for introducing their students to the topics covered in the five intellectual outputs of this project.
