In this course, participants will be given an overview of recent developments in the field of computational social science, to illustrate the possibilities the new data offers.
Participants will be guided through a case study exercise, demonstrating how data on worldwide usage of online resources such as Google and Wikipedia can be linked to collective behaviour in the real world.
The case study exercise will focus on basic programming skills for acquiring, processing, and analysing data, and will provide participants with a framework for further self study following the course.
