As more and more of our day-to-day activities have moved online, we have begun to leave digital traces of decisions and preferences -- moods, friendships, preferences among potential dates -- that had previously been all but invisible.   Join Professor David Liben-Nowell as he presents: "Tie game: Making connections with social networks".  He will describe a few highlights of the emerging research area of computational social science and talk briefly about how current students are exploring this topic in the Carleton curriculum.
