Just a link to the Syllabus for now.
Mark McKelvey, data scientist at Alight Analytics, & I will be giving talks geared towards network and graph theory. Mark will be talking about applying network analysis to marketing channel optimization. He'll show us a practical example and talk some about the tools of the trade. My talk will focus on using network and computational linguistic analysis to understand leadership and participation in virtual organizations like GitHub projects and other online systems including Facebook and Twitter. Sean’s analysis examples will be in R, and data collection examples are in Python.
