If machine learning were called predictive optimization and neural networks were stacked regressions then we wouldn't even be having this conversation
I am very proud of what this format has accomplished last year and hope that we can reproduce its success in 2022
🚨🚨🚨Calling all students and postdocs from underrepresented groups in network science! 🚨🚨🚨
There are a few more days left to apply to give a mentored lightning talk at our satellite (July 13-15) @firstname.lastname@example.org!
We're extending the deadline for WiNS + Diversify NetSci lightning talk applications to *Friday, June 17*!
Students and postdocs, apply this week to give a talk at a @email@example.com satellite and be mentored by a senior network scientist 1-on-1!
Anyone concerned about AI becoming sentient should read Hofstadter’s piece in this week’s Economist

I am happy to announce: We are organizing a 2023 Mathematics Research Community (MRC) on "Complex Social Systems": https://www.ams.org/programs/research-communities/2023MRC-SocialSystems
"We" = Heather Zinn Brooks, Michelle Feng, Mason A. Porter, Alexandria Volkening
Applications will be due by 15 February 2023
Just heard an interview with James Evans on why science innovation is slowing down despite a great increase of papers and scientists (https://news.uchicago.edu/scientific-progress-slowing-james-evans). I find his findings very insightful and I urge funding agencies and institutes to pay attention to his work. (1/n)

My co-authors, @DemianBattaglia@twitter.com and @email@example.com, and I are excited to announce that our paper "The temporal rich club phenomenon" has now been published on @NaturePhysics@twitter.com !
I thank and congratulate with my two colleagues (my PhD supervisors!)

This is my "overview talk" at the WINQ Workshop on Complex Dynamical Networks (Nordita, Stockholm, Sweden).
The first part, with a bunch of new slides, overviews general issues and challenges for modeling social dynamics on networks.
Since Darwin, animals have been stereotyped. Males: dominant alphas. Females: docile & passive. "Female animals are just as promiscuous, competitive, aggressive & dynamic as their male counterparts and play an equal role in driving evolutionary change."
This podcast is so amazing, esp this episode. @firstname.lastname@example.org https://open.spotify.com/episode/5UwLs8InTEH6L71nyLi8zH
Women have to sprint into leadership in their early career (first ten years) to make sure they have attained enough career and financial success before becoming a parent. While women get a motherhood penalty, men get a fatherhood premium. @WhatKatieBWrote@twitter.com
since you nerds blew this up and i’ve been away from my phone all day here’s a research paper you can look at
If you are ready to take your understanding to the next level, watch this proof of the formula for the area of a circle, as presented by Dan Rubin. He explains Archimedes’s original argument and why it’s better than the proofs you may have seen elsewhere. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=R1HUtt2oo7A&list=PLw3pvR_YJeRcMaubDZvkjayqDJT4Tx47A&index=3
I have passed my PhD defense — huge thanks to everyone who supported me @Princeton@twitter.com and to @email@example.com for livetweeting!
And I'm excited to share that I will be a @JSMF@twitter.com fellow in @firstname.lastname@example.org's group @PennBiology@twitter.com starting in August. Looking forward to new adventures in Philly! https://twitter.com/jplotkin/status/1535257793707450369
