Event description

Description

The premise of computational social science is that digital technology turns humans into sensors that generate behavioral data on an unprecedented scale. A golden age of computational social science may be ending, however: Facebook is essentially closed to social science questions, Instagram curtailed their API in 2016, and Twitter appears to have plateaued. This workshop will discuss how “humans as sensors” can continue to yield productive research agendas. We will focus on how to extract more data from existing sources and promising sources of new data.
