Abstract

Computational Social Science (CSS) is the use of Web Intelligence and the tools and technology capable of monitoring, analyzing, diagnosing, and resolving day-to-day problems of society. CSS is the development of intelligent systems and solutions to address the critical problems of the society such as poverty and hunger, slavery and torture, disease and suffering, and create tools that enable an illiterate person to be as productive as a PhD. The understanding was proposed and advocated by Dabbala Rajagopal (“Raj”) Reddy, who received the ACM Turing Award in 1994 for “pioneering the design and construction of large scaled artificial intelligence systems, demonstrating the practical importance and potential commercial impact of artificial intelligence technology” [1]. In a keynote speech delivered at the IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence in Leipzig, Germany on August 24, 2017, Reddy pointed out that “Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence must embrace CSS as the next frontier in Web intelligence.” His vision on Artificial Intelligence and Web Intelligence for creating a truly humane society is both thought-provoking and instrumental to bringing about new revolutions in the two related fields.
