The Cultural Observatory at Rice is working to enable the quantitative study of human culture across societies and across centuries. We do this in three ways:

  • Creating massive datasets relevant to human culture
  • Using these datasets to power wholly new types of analysis
  • Developing tools that enable researchers and the general public to query the data

The Rice Cultural Observatory is directed by Erez Lieberman Aiden.
