Popularize computational social science
Helsingin Sanomat, the leading newspaper in Finland, run a full page story of Digivaalit 2015 and computational tools in social science. The story is based on interview with Matti Nelimarkka (HIIT) and Salla-Maaria Laaksonen (University of Helsinki, Faculty of Social Science). They describe details of the methods used to examine agenda influencers during the 2015 elections - results which were published e.g. in Helsingin Sanomat.
