Networks & agents Network

NaN is a research group exploring the modeling, simulation, and analysis of complex social and information networks, adaptive agents, and social computing systems. We especially focus on social media and the Web as complex techno-social networks in which we leave abundant traces of our activities: what we do, what we are interested in, whom we talk to, what knowledge we acquire and contribute. Our research spans from modeling the dynamic processes that occur online (how information networks grow and evolve, how they can be manipulated for the spread of misinformation, how individual and collective traffic patterns emerge, how attention bursts are generated and shaped by social and search tools) to designing tools that mine the Web to build better search, navigation, management, and recommendation tools (where ‘better’ means more reliable, intelligent, autonomous, robust, personalized, contextual, scalable, adaptive, and so on). We have ongoing collaborations with colleagues at the IU Network Science Institute (IUNI)ISI Foundation, Yahoo Labs, and MoBS Lab.
