Composite Networks: Understand, Predict, and Influence

The Network Science Collaborative Technology Alliance (NS CTA) is a collaborative research alliance between the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL), other government researchers, and a Consortium of four research centers: an Academic Research Center (ARC) focused on social/cognitive networks (the SCNARC), an ARC focused on information networks (the INARC), an ARC focused on communications networks (the CNARC), and an Interdisciplinary Research Center (the IRC) focused on interdisciplinary research and technology transition. The Alliance unites research across organizations, technical disciplines, and research areas to address the critical technical challenges of the Army and Network-Centric Warfare (NCW). Its purpose is to perform foundational cross-cutting research on network science, resulting in greatly enhanced human performance for network-enabled warfare and in greatly enhanced speed and precision for complex military operations.

Yelp Dataset Challenge Winners

Congratulations to grand prize winners from Professor Jiawei Han’s group at UIUC. Jialu Liu, Jingbo Shang, Chi Wang, and Xiang Ren applied new techniques for mining high quality phrases from massive text corpora. In addition to working with English language corpora, Professor Han’s group has also tackled Chinese and Arabic, in collaboration with ARL researchers. Automated approaches to extract knowledge from vast amounts of heterogeneous and unformatted data are helping people improve planning and recognize emerging trends.
