Network science has the potential to solve major national challenges in health, security, and sustainability, said two Northeastern University professors in a briefing on Tuesday afternoon in Washington, D.C.
Alessandro Vespignani, a world-renowned expert in network science, was a guest on #sciencechat on Wednesday, August 21, 2013.
According to a new computer modeling research study from Northeastern University network scientist Alessandro Vespignani, when it comes to bioterrorist attacks, “diseases have no borders.”
The human genome is a vast parts list for the inner works of our biology.
This fall, Northeastern will begin offering the nation’s first interdisciplinary doctoral program in network science, an emerging field that researches the underlying complexity that governs all systems.
As news of the latest outbreak is upon us, Vespignani and his colleagues recently published an article in the journal BMC Medicine that offers definitive proof of a strong agreement between the predictions and the real-life surveillance data collected in 2009.
The science of complex systems was born in the mid-20th century, but it has only recently begun to mature into a research field with real-world relevance.
