Introduction to Computational Social Science


In this talk we start with the question: Why Computational Social Science? Traditionally, science has followed the mode of theory and experiment. The approach in a computational science is to gain insight via the analysis of mathematical models implemented on computers. We describe how the data revolution coupled with advances in computing, methodology, and software present fantastic opportunities for social scientists.
