Great example of what Prezi can do.

Ian Korman's curator insight, February 3, 2014 3:19 AM

Prezi isn't new but it is still pretty innovative. I recommend using just to stick out from the PowerPoint crowd. You will really stick out if you use it as creatively as they did in this video.

Network Factory 2013 - A Network Science Summer School

Network Factory 2013 - A Network Science Summer School | Complex Networks Everywhere | Scoop.it

Networks are ubiquitous and the scientific discipline of network science has flourished in the last decade. As a means to study complex interactions, two particular application areas are social and information science. On the one hand side, the www as a pool of hyper-linked information can be represented with the help of networks (and this representation is the basis for google’s Page-rank algorithm), on the other hand side services like facebook, twitter or flickr provide the means for people to establish social networks of never-seen size – and hence provide the basis for what is now called computational sociology.

The scope of this this summer school is to provide PhD students and early PostDocs with a comprehensive 1-week insight into the “power of networks” in an information science and social media setting. In Six to nine lectures, established and well-known researchers (from Europe, US and Asia) will present cutting-edge research as well as provide the participants with valuable insight into challenges and methods.

The Summer School will take place from 10th to 15th June in Höllviken (south of Sweden, 1h by train from Copenhagen, Denmark), right after NetSci 2013.

Braess like Paradox in a Small World Network

Braess \cite{1} has been studied about a traffic flow on a diamond type network and found that introducing new edges to the networks always does not achieve the efficiency. Some researchers studied the Braess' paradox in similar type networks by introducing various types of cost functions. But whether such paradox occurs or not is not scarcely studied in complex networks. In this article, I analytically and numerically study whether Braess like paradox occurs or not on Dorogovtsev-Mendes network\cite{2}, which is a sort of small world networks. The cost function needed to go along an edge is postulated to be equally identified with the length between two nodes, independently of an amount of traffic on the edge. It is also assumed the it takes a certain cost $c$ to pass through the center node in Dorogovtsev-Mendes network. If $c$ is small, then bypasses have the function to provide short cuts. As result of numerical and theoretical analyses, while I find that any Braess' like paradox will not occur when the network size becomes infinite, I can show that a paradoxical phenomenon appears at finite size of network.

Is collective stupidity just as possible as collective intelligence? | Complex Networks Everywhere | Scoop.it
Answer (1 of 10): this study from Haifa University suggests group dynamics might undermine the process of making good decisions or arriving at correct answers. E.G. louder, more confident, but incorrect, people may overwhelm quieter, correct people.

African Bus Routes Redrawn Using Cell-Phone Data

Researchers at IBM, using movement data collected from millions of cell-phone users in Ivory Coast in West Africa, have developed a new model for optimizing an urban transportation system.

The IBM model prescribed changes in bus routes around the around Abidjan, the nation’s largest city. These changes—based on people’s movements as discerned from cell-phone records—could, in theory, slash travel times 10 percent.

Pys.org: Global networks must be redesigned, Professor Dirk Helbing says | Complex Networks Everywhere | Scoop.it

The increasing interdependencies between the world's technological, socio-economic, and environmental systems have the potential to create global catastrophic risks. We may have to redesign global networks, concludes Professor Dirk Helbing at ETH Zurich's Risk Center in this week's issue of Nature. Otherwise they could turn into "global time bombs."

Chaos at fifty

Chaos at fifty | Complex Networks Everywhere | Scoop.it

Starting in the 19th century (...) and culminating with a 1963 paper by MIT meteorologist Edward Lorenz (...), a series of developments revealed that the notion of deterministic predictability, although appealingly intuitive, is in practice false for most systems. Small uncertainties in an initial state can indeed become large errors in a final one. Even simple systems for which all forces are known can behave unpredictably. Determinism, surprisingly enough, does not preclude chaos.
