First meeting of CSS Econ group

September 2, 2011

This Friday is the first meeting of the CSS department’s econ-modeling group. Interesting group of people and ideas.

Something Rob said in the CSS department’s “new student welcome” has stuck with me. Roughly:

“More and more today we have big data, big information, and big computers. Computational Social Science is all about trying to incorporate these things into a consistent and rigorous model.”

We’re all talking about what we did this summer, and so far, that fits. I’m looking forward to this semester.
