This course gives you context and first-hand experience with the two major catalyzers of the computational science revolution: big data and artificial intelligence. With more than 99% of all mediated information in digital format and with 98% of the world population using digital technology, humanity produces an impressive digital footprint. In theory, this provides unprecedented opportunities to understand and shape society. In practice, the only way this information deluge can be processed is through using the same digital technologies that produced it. Data is the fuel, but machine learning it the motor to extract remarkable new knowledge from vasts amounts of data. Since an important part of this data is about ourselves, using algorithms in order to learn more about ourselves naturally leads to ethical questions. Therefore, we cannot finish this course without also talking about research ethics and about some of the old and new lines computational social scientists have to keep in mind. As hands-on labs, you will use IBM Watson’s artificial intelligence to extract the personality of people from their digital text traces, and you will experience the power and limitations of machine learning by teaching two teachable machines from Google yourself.

Principais avaliações do BIG DATA, ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, AND ETHICS
Excellent course, lots of interesting concepts covering the field of artificial intelligence and a welcomed take on research ethics.
This course is really very interesting.I have learned a lot about big data,artificial intelligence and ethics.
I really enjoyed Martin's presentation style and his clear enthusiasm and knowledge about the topic, thank you.
Volume and speed of recordings are not as good. Needed to follow text most of the time, except for Dr Hilbert.
