DARPA is currently quickening discovery with new tools and methods for next generation social science. This program aims to connect developing technologies to tackle previously intractable social science challenges. The initial focus for the Next Generation Social Science will challenge researchers to develop and use these new tools and methods to identify causes mechanisms of “collective identity” formation - how a group of individuals becomes a unified whole, and how certain circumstances that community breaks down into a disordered mix of disconnect individuals. By developing and applying new methods and models to larger, more diverse, and more representative groups of individuals—such as through web-based global gaming and alternate reality platforms—NGS2 seeks to validate new tools that may empower social science in the same way that sophisticated telescopes and microscopes have helped advance astronomy and biology.
