Description:

Computational thinking is a mental process for solving problems through an ordered series of precise instructions, the algorithm. Every time we use a smartphone to make a phone call, take a picture, listen to music or access the Internet, we put a very complicated «computation» into action, allowing us to work on sounds, images and character sequences.

Description:

Nowadays, social media platforms, online blogs, and discussion forums are a crucial component in the public sphere, fostering discussions and influencing the public perception for a myriad of social issues such as politics, security, climate, health, economics, migration, to name but a few. On the one hand, this represents an unprecedented opportunity to discuss and propose new ideas, giving voice to the crowds. On the other hand, however, new socio-technical issues arise, which are related to the discussion of such controversial topics.

Description:

We present two different lines of research conducted in the Data Mining group of the Department of Computer Science in Aalto University. First, we consider the problem of automatically linking historical records in order to reconstruct family trees. The problem leads to a number of interesting computational questions, including record linkage, alignment of multiple partially-overlapping networks, and active network alignment.

KNOWledge Discovery from Mobility and Transportation Systems
Description:

The recent technological advances on telecommunications create a new reality on mobility sensing. Nowadays, we live in an era where ubiquitous digital devices are able to broadcast rich information about human mobility in real-time and at a high rate. Such fact exponentially increased the availability of large-scale mobility data which has been popularized in the media as the new currency, fueling the future vision of our smart cities that will transform our lives. The reality is that we just began to recognize significant research challenges across a spectrum of topics.

Description:

"Network science, network analysis, and network mining are new scientific topics that emerged in recent years and are growing quickly. Instead of studying the properties of entities, network science focus on the interaction between these entities. The tremendous quantity of relational data that become available (Online Social Networks, cell phones, the Internet and the Web, trip datasets, etc.) encourage new research on the topic. In the last years, we witnessed a shift from static network analysis to dynamic ones, i.e., the study of networks whose structure changes over time.
