Abstract: 

Advanced machine learning and scalable data analytic methods have been increasingly adopted by social science researchers in the recent literature. While the majority of existing approaches in computational social science rely on numeric, network or text data, recent studies have also demonstrated that computer vision can be applied to automatically analyze visual content data in social and mass media and facilitate quantitative investigations in many areas. Such methods dramatically enlarge the scale and scope of data analysis and open up new opportunities to social science researchers. In this talk, I will discuss recent developments of computational approaches to these research questions using three topics: (1) detecting social movements and measuring protester and state violence in protest events; (2) predicting political ideology from Facebook photographs posted by legislators; and (3) measuring dataset bias and developing a new face dataset with a balanced race composition. These studies demonstrate the utility of computer vision and show how it can relate to the broad areas in social sciences.
