Data mining in a complex world - in the real world, objects are con­nected together but those objects belong to dif­ferent types

“My phi­los­ophy is that in the real world, objects are con­nected together but those objects belong to dif­ferent types,” she said, pointing to humans, build­ings, and dig­ital devices as exam­ples “Even with humans we can still iden­tify dif­ferent groups.”

Instead of looking at two-​​dimensional rela­tion­ships in an iso­lated system, her approach brings together a series of com­plex algo­rithms that simul­ta­ne­ously address objects from mul­tiple domains and their inter­ac­tions in a much bigger, real-​​world envi­ron­ment. She has used the method to probe social net­works like Flickr and Twitter for sim­i­lar­i­ties and patterns.
