Social Computability Group

We work at the frontier of political sciences, sociology, and cognitive sciences on the one hand, and mathematics and computer sciences on the other. We rely on massive web, social media, and survey data, aided by High Performance Computer Clusters. We bring these models and tools to the study of epistemically-demanding phenomena occurring in large algorithmically-mediated social and political systems. Several of the phenomena that we study, relate to disorders of digital public spaces: fragmentation, concentration, polarization, epistemic drift in internet communities.
