Title: Toward a New Generation of Tools and Technologies for Social Sciences: The Intertwined Role of the Humanities / Social Sciences and Engineering
Lead Author: Girju, Roxana
Abstract: The current state of affairs of information technologies for social, behavioral, and economic sciences (SBE) research requires a new generation of tools, technologies and infrastructure. In this new iteration we must add a humanistic awareness to the existing computational systems. The increased complexity of SBE research requires advanced data processing tools capable of a deep understanding of the data sets. The new generation of information technologies must incorporate new dimensions such as perception and perspective in addition to content. Specifically, the community should go beyond the current approach and thinking by embracing a new initiative of high-level interdisciplinary research. This requires the exploration and integration of humanistic social science input into the development of a new generation of information technology tools and infrastructure. This white paper draws attention to the imperative need for the creation of new information technology centers capable of addressing the current challenges facing SBE research. Examples in support of such an initiative are provided herein.
