As digital technologies, the internet and social media become increasingly integrated into society, a proliferation of digital footprints of human and societal behaviours are generated in our daily lives. All these data provide opportunities to study complex social systems, by the empirical observation of patterns in large-scale data, quantitative modelling and experiments.
The social data revolution enables not only new business models but it also provides policy makers with better instruments to support their decisions.
This conference aims at stimulating the debate between scholars of different disciplines about the so called “data revolution” in social research. Statisticians, computer scientists and domain experts in social research will discuss the opportunities and challenges of the social data revolution to create a fertile ground for addressing new research problems.
