Information filtering networks

Prof. Tomaso Aste     

University College London


Networks are excellent tools to represent and model complex systems such as the human brain or financial markets.  Sparse networks constructed from observational data of complex systems can be used to filter information by extracting the core interaction structure in a simplified but representative way [1]. The seminar will cover methodologies to build these networks from data [2,3]. I will also present two applications, one concerning financial markets [4] and the other instead concerning psychometric of risk for schizophrenia-spectrum disorders [5].
