With our courses we promote interdisciplinary contacts and cooperation among students: Our courses are aimed equally at students of computer science and students of the humanities and social sciences.
Our courses have a strong focus on methods of computer-aided humanities and social sciences. We cover the following topics:
- Social Network Analysis
- Text mining
- Machine learning
- Information visualization
- Data management
In these areas, we provide a basic understanding of selected methods, their requirements for data and their potentials and limits in knowledge generation. Our goal is to provide a critical understanding of computer-aided methods and to enable students to select and independently apply suitable methods for their own problems.
