The Social Computing Research Group


About Us

The Social Computing Research Group is an interdisciplinary team of researchers who study and design technologies that mediate human collaboration, communication, and learning. We investigate not only communication and interface features that surface socially relevant information, but also underlying computational features that shape social interaction, like recommendation and reputation systems
