Social Data Science Lab

Welcome to Social Data Science Lab

The social sciences and humanities are getting more computational, and computing is getting more human and social. This makes it necessary to combine the power of information and communication technology (ICT) with knowledge from the social sciences and humanities. ICT will provide the data, methods and means to boost the social sciences and humanities into a new era, while the social sciences and humanities will provide a better understanding of the opportunities and risks of strongly networked systems.

The Social Data Science Lab at Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic) is a research center able to combine and mobilize various expertise and skills in order to address the increasingly complex issues and challenges associated with the social online systems.

The mission of the SDS lab on four integrative research areas which together capture the shared interests of our members:

  • Complex Network Systems
  • Community Question Answering Systems
  • Social Network Systems
  • Sentiment Analysis

Our lab is under supervision of Dr. Seyed Rasoul Mousavi.
