Title: Exploring the Structure of Networks and Communities
Abstract: Networks are all around us: social networks allow for information and influence flow through society, viruses become epidemics by spreading through networks, and networks of neurons allow us think and function. With the recent technological advances and the development of online social media we can study networks that were once essentially invisible to us. In this talk we discuss how computational perspectives and machine learning models can be developed to abstract networked phenomena like: How will a community or a social network evolve in the future? What are social circles a person belongs to? What kinds of network structures are there and how can they be modeled?
