The Cultural Observatory at Harvard 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 Cultural Observatory is directed by Erez Lieberman Aiden and Jean-Baptiste Michel. The Observatory is hosted at Harvard's Laboratory-at-Large
