Computational social systems [reflections and reviews of past predictions]

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The blending of approaches from engineering and various scientific disciplines has resulted in significant insights and knowledge, particularly, in computational physics, biology, medicine, and chemistry. The inclusion of social knowledge into modeling, simulation, and analyses can be seen from the advancements in social networks analysis, network science, data mining, and other areas. The next 50 years should see ongoing advancements in computational social systems research. Incorporation of social science theories and methodologies should continue to be an area of worthwhile investigation. On the one hand, there is the potential to obtain data on behavior, cultural ideology, and social interactions that can be tagged with temporal and geospatial information. There are and will continue to be a multitude of approaches developed in computational social systems in the coming years.
