On May 20th, 2014, I gave a talk at Christiania in Copenhagen. The talk was at a cool talk-series called “Science and Cocktails”, and my talk had the title “Complex Networks: Connections, Measurements, and Social Systems“. To this day I still have fond memories of that talk. It was a packed room, in a stylish… Continue reading My favorite talk by me
Hey Copenhageners, I’m happy to announce the first talk in a long, long while. We’re extremely lucky to have Dr. Leo Anthony Celi from MIT kick things off with a talk about his work with Machine Learning for health care. Talk details are below – and if you keep reading, there’s also more info about… Continue reading Talk: Leo Anthony Celi

Along with a superb group of coauthors (Andreas Bjerre-Nielsen, Valentin Kassarnig, and David Dreyer Lassen), I recently published Task-specific information outperforms surveillance-style big data in predictive analytics in PNAS. I am very excited about this paper, which is the conclusion to our trilogy of “learning analytics” papers, based on the Copenhagen Networks Study (CNS) dataset.… Continue reading Big data vs the right data: Thoughts on a recently competed trilogy
I’ve made a silly teaser trailer for the first season of my science podcast project “Too Lazy to Read the Paper”. The setup is a video call where the author explains a paper to me. We can use screen-sharing, for figures, etc. We’ll record the call and post to YouTube. Possible participants are authors of… Continue reading Podcast Trailer: Too Lazy to Read the Paper
A couple of days ago I gave a talk at University of Exeter. In the talk I talk about the take on higher-order structures in networks that I developed a couple of years ago – and which I’m still excited about. Check it out below:
Conference fatigue. I’m realizing that conferences are not really working for me at the moment. In spite of heroic efforts from conference organizers, super-star speakers, etc. When experienced through the screen in my spare bedroom, it’s all turning into a uniform, gray blur. And I generally don’t enjoy giving talks into a matrix of empty,… Continue reading Let’s build networks of science-friends!
Update May 23rd. Final update for this post. I’m happy to report that the Danish government – in part based on input from our advisory board – has decided to base the Danish contact tracing app on the DP-3T (as implemented by Google and Apple) framework. Details here https://www.sum.dk/Aktuelt/Nyheder/Coronavirus/2020/Maj/Politisk-aftale-om-frivillig-smittesporingsapp-for-covid-19.aspx Update May 1st. Here’s another update.… Continue reading Contact Tracing
