Social Data Computing

We focus on methods and algorithms to interpret social data and to turn these data into value for a wide range of stakeholders

Scientific Challenge

How can we interpret the data that people generate on the so-called social web?

Societal Challenge

Our complex society needs complex systems that are useful for the people.


A new generation of urban data science methods and tools, so that we can better understand and predict the dynamics of cities.

A very unique project that helps us manage busy events and places, such as SAIL Amsterdam.
