• Aki-Hiro Sato


Recent development of information and communication technology enables us to acquire, collect, analyse data in various fields of socioeconomic-technological systems. In this chapter, we will address data from several different perspectives and define the applied data-centric social sciences. I will explain that limitation of our ability to understand our society from inductive approach is origins of complexity. Concepts and methodologies of data-centric science will be introduced and their potential applications and existing studies will be mentioned.
