An international team of scientists led by Dr. Carlo Vittorio Cannistraci, Junior Group Leader of the Biomedical Cybernetics lab at the BIOTEChnology Center TU Dresden, has developed “coalescent embedding”: a class of algorithms that leverage machine intelligence to retrieve the hidden geometrical rules that shape the structure of complex networks. From brain connectivity to social media, “coalescent embedding” can have a future impact on disparate fields dealing with big-network-data including biology, medicine, physics and social science.
