Abstract 

 

We are witnessing interesting times rich of information, readily available for us all. Using, understanding and filtering such information has become a major activity across science, industry and society at large.

I will show how information filtering networks [1-3] built from similarity measures, both linear and non-linear, can be used to process information while it is generated reducing complexity and dimensionality while keeping the integrity of the dataset. I’ll describe  how a predictive probabilistic modeling can be associate to such networks. Through exemplification with applications to financial systems I will demonstrate how reliable, predictive and useful these models are [4].
