Invited talk: Roberta Sinatra at SICSS-Aachen-Graz (online)

July 25 @ 16:00 - 17:30

Roberta will give an invited talk at the (virtual) Summer Institutes of Computational Social Science – Graz Aachen edition:

Quantifying the dynamics of impact in science and art. The unprecedented availability of large-scale datasets about human dynamics has advanced our understanding of social collective phenomena quantitatively.
In this talk, we study the collective phenomenon of success and present a series of findings from the analysis of large-scale datasets of careers in science and art. By using concepts of statistical physics, complex systems, network science, and data science, we will tackle these three questions:
How does impact evolve in a career? How can we untangle luck from ability? What is the role of social networks in achieving high impact?
