  • Department hosts ICT Graduate School
    16 July 2015
    Two new ICT Graduate Schools were announced. The Auckland ICT Graduate school is hosted by the University of Auckland in collaboration with the University of Waikato.

  • Interview with Andre Nies
    23 June 2015
    On his recent visit to London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), Andre Nies presented a seminar on "Interactions of computability and randomness". He also kindly took time out with Andy Lewis-Pye (LSE) to answer a few questions on his research, the future of algorithmic randomness and incorporating classical music into his presentations.

    Seminar: Departmental Seminar on Adventures in computational social science: New Zealand as a "social laboratory" (Seminars) Event as iCalendar
    26 August 2015, 12 - 1pm
    Over the next two years, under a James Cook fellowship, we will be constructing a simulation-based model of some of the key socio-demographic processes in New Zealand society over the last quarter century, drawing in the first instance on the New Zealand Longitudinal Census, 1981-2013, as its empirical foundation. Potentially this is a powerful instrument of cooperative social inquiry that can be used for policy testing, for scholarly purposes, and also for teaching as well.
