Title: NRG Meeting: Characterization of  Outbreak histograms and Network  
Inference (Bashir Rastegarpanah)
Characterization of  Outbreak histograms and Network Inference

Bashir Rastegarpanah

"Graph diffusion processes are widely used to study many real-world  
scenarios. In particular, they are used to model information propagation in  
online media or the spread of behaviors and diseases through communities.  
Usually, no details are known about the structure of the underlying network  
in which an observed diffusion takes place. Network inference is therefore  
a fundamental problem because it enables practitioners in various  
disciplines to predict and possibly control future diffusions.

In this talk, I will address the problem of inferring structural properties  
of diffusion networks where the only available information consists of time  
series of counts of newly infected nodes. First, I will introduce several  
parametric models that can be used to characterize outbreak histograms. I  
will explain how we can use these models to obtain a non-linear embedding  
of spreading processes. Finally, I will show some interesting observations  
that suggest a novel approach to the network inference problem."
