Dive into the fascinating world of network science which represents people and information by the connections and interactions they share. I’ll demonstrate that network science is powerful and network visualization is beautiful, using a series of recent cases to show how information and misinformation (aka “fake news”) spread through online social networks such as Twitter and Facebook. Find out how connecting two dots by a line over and over becomes a striking and effective way to study the world we live in.
