CS 498 HS1 - Special Topics - Social & Information Networks
Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in computer science intended to augment the existing curriculum. See Class Schedule or departmental course information for topics and prerequisites. Course Information: 1 to 4 undergraduate hours. 1 to 4 graduate hours. May be repeated in the same or separate terms if topics vary.
There will be asynchronous recorded lectures and additional synchronous online activities. Topic: Networks are to be found everywhere: from your familiar social networks to buyer-seller markets to protein-protein interactions. This class is an introduction to network science and we shall cover a broad range of concepts including: random graphs; networks and social contexts, networks and game theory, information diffusion and community detection. We shall discuss both classic questions about networks (how to model the spread of disease, what kinds of networks support decentralized search-) as well as more recent questions on networks with attributes and how to analyze massive networks efficiently.
