Categorical Searching and Learning on Information Networks

July 10, 2018

Information search is an essential behavior in our everyday lives. With the advent of the World Wide Web, the amount and variety of accessible information burst and brought us the prominent challenge of information overload. Crucially, efficiency in information search depends on the way knowledge is structured and on the strategy used to find the target information. In order to improve performance through the design of a better information space for humans to search and learn, it is important to understand what the influencing factors are in our searching behavior.

Video: Dynamics of Multiplex Networks in Schools

June 26, 2018

Károly Takács, Principal Investigator of “Lendület” Research Center for Educational and Network Studies (RECENS) at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, gave a talk at DNDS about the benefits of studying social network dynamics in multiplex dimensions using social network panel data from Hungarian schools. By taking into account positive as well as negative relations between pupils in the classroom, he and his collaborators have demonstrated how social relations evolve towards structural balance.
