Computational Social Sciences is an interdisciplinary endeavor that uses digital data in all its forms to generate fundamental and policy-oriented insights about society. 

The CSS team at Institut Polytechnique de Paris is invested in tackling the challenges raised by the current computational revolution, at various levels:

    • Leveraging the empirical power of these new masses of data

    • Analyzing how the new data abundance affects our daily lives and societies altogether

    • Reflecting on how artificial intelligence and statistical learning can be used for social scientific research

    • Studying the individuals who operate the digital infrastructures

Each of our team members is invested in one of these fastly developing areas of CSS. This diversity in approaches and methods allows us to meet the challenges raised by these deep-seated transformations.

Because we strongly believe that the advent of digital data demands the training of a new breed of researchers, we organize summer schools, offer Ph.d. and intern positions, as well as we organize workshops and conferences to reflect on the present and on the future of research.
