We work to better understand digital inequalities and learn how to effectively support digital inclusion, democratic innovation and civic participation.
Our research has included:
- interdisciplinary investigations by the Work Futures Research Centre on the impact of advances in digital technologies on careers and professions, working practices, working lives and organisational processes
- social media analytics, which combines innovative computational and social science research methods to get real-world insights from the digital traces of people and oganisations in social media data
- multidisciplinary research into social machines, which are web-scale systems where humans and machines play complementary roles in achieving a desirable outcome (Wikipedia, for example)
