CSE481P: Capstone: Social Computing

Description: Students will work in teams of 3 to 4 to design and evaluate computational formulations of global problems such as achieving stability and sufficiency of the world food supply, managing the threats of nuclear war, ending homelessness, and minimizing the undesirable consequences of climate change. Each team will begin by selecting a problem in consultation with the teaching team, identifying and analyzing appropriate information resources, including possible consultations with outside experts. The team will propose one or more basic formulations, present them, and receive critiques from both the teaching team and the other teams. They will iteratively refine their formulations, moving towards working code that supports users in roles that engage them in understanding and solving the problem.
