Weaponized Feeds and Text as Data: Notes from IC2S2 2017

We just returned from the 3rd International Conference of Computational Social Science, hosted by GESIS-Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences in Cologne, Germany. It was an amazing conference — really well organized by the incredible local team — with a bunch of really interesting talks across the three days. It was inspiring to meet so […]

Experiments in the Digital Age

In the digital age, are our experiments, such as the standard randomized controlled experiments, digital too? In a word, argues sociologist Matthew Salganik of Princeton University, yes. “In the past,…all experiments were analog experiments, and now more and more can take advantage of digital infrastructure. What are digital experiments? I would say an experiment is […]

Computational Research at the Forefront

The use of so-called big data has captured the imagination of the public and a growing share of the academic community, but what are some of the specific research outputs that social and behavioral scientists have revealed that weren’t discover-able before the advent of computational social science? This video, the third in a series of […]

How Industry Can Help Advance Computational Social Science

What role should industry play as big data is increasingly used for social science research? In this second video synthesizing some of the important themes covered at 2016’s second International Conference on Computational Social Science, or IC2S2, three practitioners from businesses born of the computer era address that question. Five years ago, started Hanna Wallach, a […]
