Data-Driven Technologies for the Social Sciences

Data-Driven Technologies for the Social Sciences

Our lives are increasingly influenced by digital tools. New technologies have significantly altered how we live, work and interact. At the same time, the enormous production of data provides unprecedented opportunities to both improve and threaten society.

Recognising that data science is fundamental to the social sciences of the future, this thematic priority aims to apply quantitative disciplines to a range of social challenges. CIVICA researchers work interdisciplinarily to study the impact of artificial intelligence and examine societal trends with the help of data analysis.

Key topics

  • Artificial intelligence and society
  • Societal changes brought about by digital technologies
  • Using new technologies for social good
  • Innovative digital methods for social science research
