    Basic principles of network operation can be successfully used for establishing a new kind of ethics for social encounters. We look at the social dynamics modulated through so-called “Game” utilized by pick-up artists and abstract this approach to learn interesting new behaviors for activating intersubjective relations.

  • Learning through Associations and Knowledge Graphs

    Learning often works through associations. In this article we demonstrate how one can enhance one’s knowledge through the use of network graphs, which provide a good overview and at the same time can reveal the limits and the frontiers that are to be explored.

  • Knowledge Graphs: The New Type of Document for the 21st Century


    Excel was a revolutionary product for the time, but in the 21st century columns and rows are not sufficient anymore. What matters today are multidimensional relations between data, which combine a better view of the bigger picture with an attention to detail: networks and graphs.

  • Group Profiling Using Text Network Analysis

    Any group of people working together has a field of interests, which can be represented as a network of interrelated concepts. Mark might be interested in studying trends and fashion, while Joanne might be into fashion and arts. Identifying those interests and their relation to one another can be very useful for improving the collaboration, indicating the vantage points as well as the structural gaps within the group.

    Text network analysis can be used for such quick group profiling. The members of the group can write a short text (or be interviewed) outlining their interests. Alternatively, publicly available texts can be used to gather the data. Next, graph visualization of this aggregated text can help identify the most prominent topics and their relations within that text corpus.

Using Alain Badiou’s propositions from “Being and Event” as well as a recent study from LIP6 lab in France, we bring together the philosophical and scientific explanations for an event, which has the capacity to change the context.
