<h1>Welcome to UCLA Comp Soc!</h1> <p><strong>The aim of the Computational Sociology Working Group (CompSoc) is to discover and practice the latest methods in computational sociology.</strong> </p> <p>We encourage current computational researchers to hone and add to their skills, while also introducing computational methods to faculty and students who have never used such methods in their research. </p> <p>Our activities include: programming, software and data sessions, workshops for students' projects and fellowship applications, guest lectures, and a journal club. </p> <p>Last spring, the group also organized bi-weekly meetings to learn a new computational method, deep learning. In meetings, we discussed and solved problem sets related to readings of the open access textbook Deep Learning.</p> <p><strong>If would like to join our email list, or workshop a project or proposal,</strong> please email student coordinators:</p> <ul> <li>Bernard Koch bernardkoch@ucla.edu</li> <li>Ian Peacock ipeacock@ucla.edu</li> <li>Alina Arseniev-Koehler arsena@g.ucla.edu.</li> </ul> <p>Jacob Foster is our faculty sponsor.
