I am participating in the summer CORE program for the second summer in a row. Last summer, while attending CAVEPM as part of CORE, I learned about something called a social network. A social network is a representation of the connections (called 'edges') between people, places or things (called 'nodes'). Social networks can be used for many applications; to simulate how disease could spread through a population, to evaluate the impact of specific interventions (for example, a vaccine), or potentially to understand how information flows through an organization.
