GraphConnect 2012 speaker Dr. James Fowler is well-known for his academic application of multirelational graphs towards understanding social networks. Dr. Fowler will be delivering the keynote address at GraphConnect on “The Power of the Social Graph” on Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Read his latest published research: “A 61-million-person experiment in social influence and political mobilization” in Nature and “Social contagion theory: examining dynamic social networks and human behavior” in Statistics in Medicine. Both of these articles demonstrate how Dr. Fowler analyzes relationships within a social network by using graphs.
