Some time earlier this year I was asked to be a panelist in the second Queen’s Graduate Computing Society Conference. At the time, I thought it would be a good idea to expose the students that there’s more to networks than streams of data and routers.
More recently, I had a chance to revisit the topic. With more time to present than before, I thought I’d give the talk more depth.
My inspiration for the talk came from two books that offered a general view of Networks. One by M. E. J. Newman called “Networks: An Introduction“, the other by David Easley and Jon Kleinberg called “Networks, Crowds, and Markets: Reasoning About a Highly Connected World“.
You can find my slides here. Also, a “write up” version ought to be coming up soon.
