Group 18: questions about Session 1
After learning this session, first I found that the complexity of a network often varies depends on different types of network. Also, I found that there are so many ways of evaluating a network and analyzing its nodes, and different methods often retruns different outcomes. But, analyzing a network using only one aspect is never enough, so that brings us the reality of analyzing complex networks in real life, is to gather all the information, and systematically figure out different aspects of the network, then you can draw a conclusion. Also, the fact that our social life are connected like a network and the two of us has a average jump needed is six, just blew my mind. I guess networking is not just important in computer science, but also in everyday life, in industry, and more.
I have to say it’s an innovative work to do the network analysis
(technical as well I suppose). I used to think that nets are just things for us
to get the information we want, enabled by a pile of protocols (and I don’t even
know how they work). However, this lecture makes me know that once we draw out the
network, we can do analysis, like evaluating the ’power’ of nodes. And by
evaluating form different aspects, we can even get different results. But what
impressed me most is that the analysis we made might implicate the hidden information,
and that needs a good brain to connect the statistics and the reason that
caused them. Maybe the next step is to figure out how to find more information
behind the network, no matter in a mathematical or sociological way (and other
subjects might also have related).
