On April 15 I was walking my dog in Franklin Park, a big beautiful green space just at the edge of the city. At 3:32 pm my cousin sent me […]
In new research, network scientist Alessandro Vespignani and his team show through computational modeling that a hypothetical attack involving smallpox may spread to two or four countries before the first cases are ever diagnosed.
Baruch Barzel, a postdoctoral researcher in world-renowned network scientist Albert-László Barabási’s lab, has worked out a method for mapping the interactions between cellular components, moving the team a step closer in its quest to understand, predict, and control disease.
The pioneering degree program, which will begin this fall, will focus on an interdisciplinary field that seeks to understand the underlying complexity of various systems.
As you may have noticed, I’ve been slacking off in my blogging duties recently (not withstanding yesterday and the amazing guest posts you saw over the last couple weeks). While […]
Northeastern’s Center for Complex Network Research organized a daylong symposia on the Science of Success on Monday, bringing together experts in fields ranging from business to physics.
Symposium to discuss the phenomena of success and how it can be predicted based on data from all areas of life.
Network scientist Alessandro Vespignani, who studies the spread of diseases, explains the pandemic potential of the emerging H7N9 bird flu and why it’s different from past strains.
A couple weeks ago I wrote a story about some work related to the Boston Marathon bombings that network scientists in David Lazer’s lab are working on. They’re asking Android […]
Earlier this month, the Obama administration announced its plan to put $100 million toward building a network map of the human brain. World leading network scientist and Northeastern Distinguished Professor […]
