Michigan State University will be speaking.\n
\n
The
title of the topic is "Inferring relationships
through graph theory and social network
analysis."\n

Bipartite graphs can
be used to capture social networks through
event participation. By letting one set of vertices
be participants and the other set be events,
each edge represents an individual participating
in an event. These bipartite graphs
can be projected into a weighted graph by multiplying
the bipartite adjacency matrix by
its transpose. In the projection, an edge between
two individuals represents the number of
times they participated in the same event. We
can now ask, how many times do two people have
to participate in events together before
we can assume they have some sort of relationship?
We will discuss ways to decide if an edge
weight is strong enough and deduce friendship
ties.\n\n
