Kameshwar C. Wali Lecture in the Sciences & Humanities

Lab Director Noshir Contractor presented a Kameshwar C. Wali Lecture in the Sciences & Humanities on September 24th, 2015 at Syracuse University. His talk, entitled “Leveraging Computational Social Science to Address Grand Societal Challenges” argues that computational social science is the foundation on which to unleash intellectual insights locked in big data, illustrating how these insights offer scientists and scholars an unprecedented opportunity to engage more actively in monitoring, anticipating, and designing interventions to address grand societal challenges.
