SOCIAL MEDIA - What's the big deal!
We'd like to host a "Bring Your Boss to
Lunch" meeting for September, so
bring your boss to lunch for this one!
Be social! (See
what I did there?)
Social medial is now pervasive and it's here
to stay, but there's still a lot of confusion as to what it is and
why it's so important.

This meeting will focus on the history of the field, how the field
got started, and the research that directed some of the
technological advances. We’ll also be talking about the state of the
art, the problems that marketers face in social spaces (BIG problems
too), what is actually possible and what is a gimmick, and what is
Our speaker will be Tim Weinger, an assistant professor in the College
of Engineering at
of Notre Dame, with appointments in the Interdisciplinary
Center for Network Science and Applications (iCeNSA)
and the Department
of Computer Science and Engineering.
Tim joined the faculty in August 2013, after completing his Ph.D. in Computer
Science at the University
of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. He works in "network
science", with a particular focus on multimodal/heterogeneous
information networks. His research lies at the intersection of
machine learning and databases and information retrieval.
Tim’s principal research interest is in large-scale multi-modal
(typed/heterogeneous) information networks, and more generally in
data mining, databases, machine learning, statistics and network
science. Due to the size of certain information networks and their
corresponding databases, most of his work falls within big data
paradigm, which requires an expanded use of new technology.
