Computational Social Science

With an increasing amount of data on every aspect of our daily activities – from what we buy, to where we travel, to who we know, and beyond – we are able to measure human behavior with precision largely thought impossible just a decade ago, creating an unprecedented opportunity to address longstanding questions in the social sciences.

Lying at the intersection of computer science, statistics and the social sciences, the emerging field of computational social science fills this role, using large-scale demographic, behavioral and network data to investigate human activity and relationships.

In the first category, we exploit digital data that is generated by existing platforms (e.g., email, web browsers, Twitter) to generate novel insights into individual and collective human behavior (e.g., virality of online content, causal impact of recommendations, TV show and ad effectiveness).

We live in a world of data – of big data – a large part of which has been generated by humans through their interactions with both the physical and digital world.
