Computational Sociodynamics Laboratory

The lab is interested in problems originating from the interplay between people and computing systems, in the determinants of information quality in cyberspace, and in how information propagates across social networks. We work in a variety of Web systems, but favorites include social media platforms such as Twitter and online collaboration communities like the online encyclopedia Wikipedia. We seek inspiration from a number of disciplines, including network science, machine learning, and agent-based modeling for our tools and approaches.
