After some google searching, I found this service ⇒ ⇐ who helped me write my research paper. The final result was amazing, and I highly recommend ⇒ ⇐ to anyone in the same mindset as me.

  8. 8. John Rust: detail Your on line digital footprint: A Pandora’s Box Classical psychometrics is based on the analysis of items in tests. Today, our ability to treat online digital footprints as psychometric items has opened a Pandora’s Box that takes both theory and practice to new levels. Online ‘items’ include Likes, words, pictures, quizzes, games, videos, search, locations, spend, and biometrics, all of which can be subject to machine learning, AI and other forms of data analytics. A new era in the prediction and control of human behaviour brings many benefits but also carries significant risks, to individuals and society alike. Professor John Rust is Director of The Psychometrics Centre at the University of Cambridge, a world leader in modern psychometric techniques. Its software products include Concerto, an open source online adaptive test development platform and Apply Magic Sauce, an API that enables users to analyse their online psychological footprint from either their Facebook Likes or specimens of their writing.
