Kone Foundation project on digital social research 2015-2017

I am the project leader in a 2015 -2017 Kone Foundation funded project on digital social research with special reference to political science. The project members are Matti Nelimarkka, M.Soc.Sc., Joonas Mattson, M.Soc.Sc., and, as project assistant, M.Soc.Sc. student Anton Sobolev.

We examine:

– Quality indexes of discourse and deliberation and the constructions of these indexes by means of machine learning classifiers

– The scaling of the dimensions of political dimensions by means of examining big data and utilizing special methods to do this scaling

– The evolution of university strategies by means of examining relevant documentary data

– The contents of selected documents of public policy evaluation

The data in our project include tweets, party programs and government political programs as well as documents on university policies and administration and documents of public policy evaluation
