Abstract: Computational social science can enable understanding – and design – of a wide variety of phenomena at an enormous range of levels. This lecture will address processes, organizations, ecosystems, and society for phenomena associated with disease and medicine, health and well being, and technology adoption, particularly in automobiles. The process level is addressed in terms of scaling and optimization of medical innovations. The level of organizations is considered in the context of health provider corporations’ responses to the Affordable Care Act. The ecosystem level is discussed in addressing population health – integrated delivery of health, education, and social services – in the highly fragmented US ecosystem. The society level is considered in terms of the expected disruptive impacts of driverless cars on automotive, insurance, and finance industries. Approaches to and challenges of modeling at these differing levels are discussed.
