Computational Social Science Capstone Project (Coursera)

CONGRATULATIONS! Not only did you accomplish to finish our intellectual tour de force, but, by now, you also already have all required skills to execute a comprehensive multi-method workflow of computational social science. We will put these skills to work in this final integrative lab, where we are bringing [...]

Computer Simulations (Coursera)

Big data and artificial intelligence get most of the press about computational social science, but maybe the most complex aspect of it refers to using computational tools to explore and develop social science theory. This course shows how computer simulations are being used to explore the realm of what [...]

Stochastic Processes: Data Analysis and Computer Simulation (edX)

The course deals with how to simulate and analyze stochastic processes, in particular the dynamics of small particles diffusing in a fluid. The motion of falling leaves or small particles diffusing in a fluid is highly stochastic in nature. Therefore, such motions must be modeled as stochastic processes, for [...]

Supercomputing (FutureLearn)

Discover how supercomputers work and the real-life scientific breakthroughs made possible by today’s computer simulations. Today’s supercomputers are the most powerful calculating machines ever invented, capable of performing more than a thousand million million calculations every second. This gives scientists and engineers a powerful new tool to study the [...]
