Democracy in the Age of Big Data and AI

Models and tools from computational social science

This summer school takes place in Venice, Italy

This summer school mixes theoretical lectures with practical hands-on sessions and ateliers to examine how novel tools of computational social science can help us understand these phenomena and possibly facilitate future democratic decision processes. It introduces social scientists and media researchers to the latest methods, tools, and techniques, and introduces AI researchers and complex systems scientists to the approaches and issues of social science so that they can come up with new tools or refine existing ones.
