About:

Our everyday usage of the Internet generates huge amounts of data on how humans collect and exchange information worldwide. In this masterclass Suzy Moat, Professor of Behavioural Science at Warwick Business School, will outline a number of case studies demonstrating how data from sources such as Google, Wikipedia and Flickr can be used to gain new insight into real world human behaviour.

Target audience: 

This masterclass is aimed at social science researchers at any level.

Aims:

Delegates will leave with a working knowledge of how to access and manipulate data from a number of online sources.

Course outline:

This masterclass will cover examples from a range of domains, including disease detection, crowd size estimation, and evaluating whether the beauty of the environment we live in might affect our health. It will build on the case studies used in the earlier webinar and focus on the practical skills to teach delegates how they can access and use online data to gain insight into human behaviour. View more information on the webinar.

Course structure:

The masterclass will follow the format of an hour lecture, followed by lunch and another hour lecture which will include a practical lab session.
