02.11.2021 Influence diffusion in social networks: modelling, prediction, and control

Speaker: Dr. Doina Bucur, University of Twente, The Netherlands.


Abstract: Information (of influence) diffuses via links in a social network, and, even assuming that the network structure is relatively static, the size of an information cascade is hard to estimate well, both over a model and over a real social network. We cover models of information diffusion, then look at methods to predict ‘important’ nodes in the network, for example single nodes... more
