ODYCCEUS Online Conference - The Computational Analysis of Cultural Conflict

MPI für Mathematik in den Naturwissenschaften Leipzig
Live Stream

People around the world are increasingly experiencing the world mediated through digital interfaces. Concerns have been raised on the implications of this development, in particular linking the increasing levels of polarization, cultural conflicts, and fragmentation to the growth of this digital realm.

During the last four years, a network of researchers from different fields has worked towards a better understanding of these developments within the European project ODYCCEUS (Opinion DYnamics and Cultural Conflict in European Spaces, www.odycceus.eu). The broad aim of Odycceus has been to develop concepts, methods and software that enables theoretically-grounded empirical analysis of textual data on political opinions and their dynamics. In this final conference latest results of the project are presented with a particular focus on specific case studies.
