Personas is a component of the Metropath(ologies) exhibit, originally on display at the MIT Museum by the Sociable Media Group from the MIT Media Lab. It has been shown in 7 exhibits around the world since, from Peru to Italy. It uses sophisticated natural language processing and the Internet to create a data portrait of one's aggregated online identity. In short, Personas shows you how the Internet sees you.

The computational process is visualized with each stage of the analysis, finally resulting in the presentation of a seemingly authoritative personal profile.
