Cover Story (view full-size image): We explore big data-driven artificial intelligence (AI) applied to social systems, i.e., social computing, the concept of artificial intelligence as an enabler of novel social solutions. Through a critical analysis of the literature, we elaborate on the social and human interaction aspects of technology that must be in place to achieve such enablement and address the limitations of the current state of the art in this regard. We review cultural, political, and other societal impacts of social computing, its impact on vulnerable groups, and the ethically aligned design of social computing systems. We show that this is not merely an engineering problem, but rather the intersection of engineering with health sciences, social sciences, psychology, policy, and law. View this paper.
