    Big data vs the right data: Thoughts on a recently competed trilogy

    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. […]

  • Podcast Trailer: Too Lazy to Read the Paper

    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 […]

  • Video from talk at University of Exeter

    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:

    Let’s build networks of science-friends!

    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, […]

    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. […]

  • Complex Networks in Cambridge

    Complex Networks in Cambridge

    I had an absolutely wonderful time at the Complex Networks 2018 conference last week in Cambridge, UK. I learned a lot and got caught up a bit with all the amazing work that’s going within complex network analysis and see some of the great new young researchers in the field. At the community detection sessions, […]

  • TEDx Aarhus

    TEDx Aarhus

    In the beginning of October, I headed to Aarhus to participate in TEDx Aarhus. It’s was a great learning experience and excellent fun to participate in that event. The Aarhus TEDx crew were  just super pro at everything. That includes excellent, pro-level photos – and they posted all those great photos to Flickr.  Below, I’m […]
