GESIS Fall Seminar in Computational Social Science (2021)

13 September  - 1 October 2021, Online-Seminar

The GESIS Fall Seminar in Computation Social Science targets social scientists, data scientists, and researchers in the digital humanities that collect and analyze data from the web, social media, or digital text archives. Its one-week courses are taught by both GESIS and international experts and cover methods and techniques for collecting and analyzing digital behavioral data (“big data”), for example Machine Learning or Text Mining using both R and Python. Lectures in each course are complemented by hands-on exercises giving participants the opportunity to apply these methods to data. All courses are held in English.
