Whether it's absent-minded mistakes at work, a weakness for junk food, a smart phone addiction, or a lack of exercise, everyone has some bad habit or behavior that they'd like to change. But wanting to change and actually doing it - and sticking with it - are two very different things.
As Dr. Young explains, you don't change behavior by changing the person, you do it by changing the process. Drawing on his own scientific research and that of other leading experts in the field, he explains why change can be difficult and identifies the crucial forces that combine to make transformation permanent, from the right way to create new habits to how to harness emotional meaning to motivate change.
"I help people and businesses by teaching them about human behavior," said Dr. Young. "I help them to predict events and to make lasting changes in their life and work. I specialize in health and medicine - and I also love playing music and Muay Thai boxing."
The University of California Institute for Prediction Technology
(UCIPT) is a multidisciplinary, multicampus collaborative, accelerating innovations that leverage social technologies to predict human behaviors and outcomes. Some examples of potential research applications include:
- Tracking risk behaviors to predict disease, crime, poverty, or other negative outcomes and inform intervention efforts
- Discerning predictors of political opinion, social and moral values, academic success, or community involvement
- Understanding how and why people use certain technologies, buy certain products, or follow certain trends
The ultimate vision is to become a highly interdisciplinary, multisector hub of researchers, data scientists, and community partners that utilize, evaluate, and refine our tools and techniques for a broad array of applications.
