Characterizing information importance and the effect on the spread in various graph topologies

In this paper we present a thorough analysis of the nature of news in different mediums across the ages, introducing a unique mathematical model to fit the characteristics of information spread. This model enhances the information diffusion model to account for conflicting information and the topical distribution of news in terms of popularity for a given era. We translate this information to a separate graphical node model to determine the spread of a news item given a certain category and relevance factor. The two models are used as a base for a simulation of information dissemination for varying graph topoligies. The simulation is stress-tested and compared against real-world data to prove its relevancy. We are then able to use these simulations to deduce some conclusive statements about the optimization of information spread.

Signal/Collect - Parallel Graph Processing

Signal/Collect - Parallel Graph Processing | Complex Insight  - Understanding our world | Scoop.it
Signal/Collect is a framework for large-scale graph processing.
Phillip Trotter's insight:

Signal/Collect is an interesting scala based graph processing framework from the University of Zurich. Equipped with great starter documentation and a relatively low learning curve it is worth a look if graph processing and analysis is your area of interest.
