We are a group of enthusiasts at Bogazici who are excited about computational modeling techniques led by Dr. Basak Taraktas. Our research areas include agent based modeling, machine learning, and text mining. We meet on a weekly basis to do hands-on exercises and improve our skills in a friendly collegial environment. We collaborate on research projects to study social questions. 

We like coding. We use the R and Python programming languages. Consider visiting our project page to see small games and simulations our team members developed. 

We like big data. Big data has transformed business and industries around the world. Our team of academics utilizes big data to understand and analyze patterns of social, political and economic changes.
