  • The aim is to describe certain, more complex phenomena more realistically than before. Assistant Professor Mikko Kivelä, what kind of research do you do? My starting point is the theoretical research of phenomena that can be modelled as networks. These include social, gene regulatory and transportation systems, which can be described as interlinked elements. From the theoretical perspective, all these networks look similar and share the same kinds of phenomena and analysis methods. My goal is...
  • Computers are able to learn to explain the behavior of individuals by tracking their glances and movements. Researchers from Aalto University, University of Birmingham and University of Oslo present results paving the way for computers to learn psychologically plausible models of individuals simply by observing them. In newly published conference article, the researchers showed that just by observing how long a user takes to click menu items, one can infer a model that reproduces similar...
