Dertouzos Lecturer Series: Professor Jon Kleinberg

Abstract: The working metaphor for the Web in its early days was that of a `universal encyclopedia,' a repository containing vast amounts of human knowledge. More recently, our view has shifted to incorporate more dynamic forms of information and a more explicit `time axis' -- the Web as a current-awareness medium, supporting on-line news, chat, discussion, commentary, and emerging media such as weblogs. Many factors have contributed to this evolution of Web information; a crucial one is the way in which technological and social networks have become intertwined, enabling new topics, ideas, and behaviors to cascade along an underlying social network of interaction that parallels the hyperlinks of the Web itself.
