It is a fairly common story for families – a runaway teenager leaves a note saying ‘I’m not coming back, and don’t try looking for me’ and turns off their cell phone. In a recent case, however, a sister was able to find her brother by using the knowledge she acquired as a student in HSE’s Applied Mathematics and Information Science programme. Her story shows what social networks can say about its users to someone who knows how to listen.
Today we had another exciting presentation by a guest speaker - Dr. Dilyara Salakhova of Banque de France and University Paris West Nanterre. We were quite fortunate to get exposure to other projects featuring networks, share ideas, and, establish collaborations with people outside the lab, substantially enhancing our own research pipeline.
