Mexican Tour

In the last two weeks I have been touring central Mexico thanks to the invitation by Paola Ricaurte (Instituto Tecnológico de Monterrey – Ciudad de México) and Sergio Rivera Magos (Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro). At the Instituto Tecnológico de Monterrey I gave a three days course of “Social Data Analysis and Visualization as part of the lecturer training program of this university. In particular, I presented concepts of social network analysis:

  • Introduction to graph theory
  • Structural metrics
  • Community detection methods
  • Centrality measures
  • Diffusion models
  • Conversation dynamics
  • Case-studies of political communities on Twitter and article networks on Wikipedia

The course also included a comprehensive review of digital tools for social media monitoring and a hackaton. All these topics, following a more practical approach, were also given in the Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro within the Master in Communication and Digital Culture.
