Social Computing Seminar – Fall 2021

We use computational systems to interact with our friends and foes, our team partners and romantic partners, and our organizations and societies. How do we design these social computing systems?

This seminar will cover the design patterns for social computing, and the foundational social scientific and technical concepts that underpin them.

We will read and discuss papers covering foundational and recent papers in the field that explore different methods in social computing.

Students will conduct a research project on building, evaluating, or theorizing about a new social computing design.

Andrés Monroy-Hernández will be leading the seminar in the Fall of 2021.


This seminar builds on similar courses at UW by Amy Zhang and at Stanford by Michael Bernstein.
