a. In this course, we will explore how social behaviors can be studied using large-scale datasets and computational methods. Focusing on a combination of sociological foundations and recent advances in NLP, human-centered AI, and HCI, we will learn to understand and analyze online social phenomena. Through this course, students will read and critique high-impact research papers, lead and engage in class discussions, provide and receive constructive peer-feedback, implement new research methods, and execute a new research project for their final paper.
