Online Convening: June 2020

Our overall goal with the reconfiguration of the Getty Advanced Workshop in Network Analysis + Digital Art History is to provide additional scaffolding to advance the work of the project teams in light of the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted not only our face-to-face plans for the 2020 convening, but also the working lives of the participants. 

During the week of June 22, 2020, originally scheduled to be the first week of the final Pittsburgh-based convening, we will hold a series of virtual events that will allow the NA+DAH teams to present their current progress and future plans in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. The focus will be on collecting and consolidating the teams’ thoughts, re-convening as a community, and learning from one another.

    •  Abstract: Given a graph, how can we automatically discover roles of nodes? Roles compactly represent structural behaviors of nodes and generalize across various graphs. Examples of roles include “clique-members,” “periphery-nodes,” “bridges,” etc. Are there good features that we can extract for nodes that indicate role-membership? How are roles different from communities and from equivalences (from sociology)? What are the applications in which these discovered roles can be effectively used? In this talk, we address these questions, provide algorithms for role discovery, and discuss why roles are so effective in many applications from transfer learning to re-identification to anomaly detection to mining time-evolving networks and multi-relational graphs.
