    Abstract:

    Mobile phones are increasingly equipped with sensors, such as accelerometers, GPS receivers, proximity sensors and cameras, which can be used to sense and interpret people behaviour in real-time. Novel user-centered sensing applications can be built by exploiting the availability of these technologies. Moreover, data extracted from the sensors can also be used to model and predict people behaviour and movement...

    Abstract:
    Further understanding of DNA hybridization kinetics has new
    urgency because recent DNA network systems often depends critically on
    hybridization rates particularly under isothermal conditions. Indeed,
    sequence-dependent decrease of performance for hybridization-based
    oligonucleotide networks has been reported, and the mechanism is...

    Abstract: Smartphones are a pretty big deal. Many of us now begin our day with our phone’s alarm clock. On the way to work we read email while listening to music. We navigate to novel locations with instructions to turn left in 500 yards. At the end of the day, we relax by queueing up YouTube content on our phone to watch on the big screen television. All of this is done on a small...

    Methods for Finding Interesting Nodes in Weighted Graphs

    With the increasing amount of graph-structured data available, finding interesting objects, i.e., nodes in graphs, becomes more and more important. In this thesis we focus on finding interesting nodes and sets of nodes in graphs or networks. We propose several definitions of node interestingness as well as different methods to...

  • Electrical measures of importance for network edges

    Charalampos Mavroforakis, Boston University, USA

    Abstract:

    Measures that quantify the importance of nodes and edges in networks are valuable in the analysis of various types of data, including social, biological, computer networks and more. With rare exceptions, the applicability of such measures to large datasets is hindered by the lack of fast algorithms for their computation.

    In this talk, we mainly focus on the importance...

    Doctoral dissertation
    University of Helsinki main building, lecture hall XV (Unioninkatu 34, 4th floor),

    Contemporary social scientists describe the current societal circumstances as the late modern era, which is characterized by an abundance of both options and uncertainties. Theorists sometimes associate these characteristics with the development of information and communication technologies (ICTs). Some argue that computer-mediated, networked...
