This course gives you an overview of the current opportunities and the omnipresent reach of computational social science. The results are all around us, every day, reaching from the services provided by the world’s most valuable companies, over the hidden influence of governmental agencies, to the power of social and political movements. All of them study human behavior in order to shape it. In short, all of them do social science by computational means.

TOP REVIEWS FROM COMPUTATIONAL SOCIAL SCIENCE METHODS
Fantastic introduction to social network analysis and how modeling and machine learning are used to plan or predict future actions from past data.
The course was well-paced and engaging. The exercises were relevant and interesting.
This introduction course of CSS Methods is nicely structured. Prof. Hilbert and the others are great presentations. I enjoyed the course and will definitely continue to the next course.
Very useful and clear introductory course! Thanks Prof. Martin Hilbert for the amazing content. I cannot wait to take all the other courses in this specialization.
