NERDS Seminar with Jonas Juul

ITU, 3F07 Kaj Munks Vej 11, Copenhagen, Denmark

On Wednesday Feb 22, Jonas Juul (DTU) will present his talk "Harder, better, faster, stronger cascades - or simply larger?" on the dissemination of online content. Abstract: Do some types of online content spread faster or further than others? In recent years, many studies have sought answers to such questions by comparing statistical properties of network paths taken […]

Talk: The issue of scale in anarchy: an information perspective Anarchist collectives are self-organized, non-hierarchical and anti-authoritarian. It is often argued that the scope of such collectives is limited, as they cannot grow in size or complexity without requiring some form of delegation or centralized hierarchical control. More generally, the emergence of control hierarchies in […]

Bicycle infrastructure data and networks: Opportunities and limitations In this talk, we will explore the opportunities and limitations of bicycle infrastructure data, models and networks. With the increasing popularity of cycling as a mode of transportation, the need for accurate and reliable data on bicycle infrastructure has become crucial for planners, engineers, and policymakers.

CSH Vienna workshop: Sustainable mobility

We are organizing a workhop in Vienna! Sustainable Mobility: Data, Networks, and Complexity Why are politicians so reluctant to invest into bicycle infrastructure and pedestrianization given it is the most efficient investment towards sustainable and livable cities? What are the technical and political bottlenecks that keep society in the stranglehold of car dependency, and what […]

Coloring Social Relationships Social relationships are the key determinant of crucial societal outcomes, including diffusion of innovation, productivity, happiness, and life expectancy. To better attain such outcomes at scale, it is therefore paramount to have technologies that can effectively capture the type of social relationships from digital data. NLP researchers have tried to do so […]

Quantitative understanding of success and inequality through network science The unprecedented availability of large-scale datasets on human activities and interactions has enabled us to quantitatively understand how networks shape success and drive inequalities in various fields. In this talk, I will highlight the crucial role of network science in comprehending social phenomena, particularly in the […]
