RISE RandNet Project awarded

RISE RandNet Project awarded

The GAPCOMB (Geometric, Algebraic and Probabilistic Combinatorics) research group has received a grant from the European Marie Skłodowska-Curie RISE (Research and Innovation Staff Exchange) program to carry out the RandNET project for the next 4 years. The aim of the project is the analysis of graphs with probabilistic and analytical methods, with applications to combinatorial statistics and machine learning in networks. RandNET is led by the UPC and coordinated by Professor Marc Noy. The other centers in the network are: U. Oxford, U. Technical Vienna, U. Technical Eindhoven, École Polytechnique (Palaiseau), U. Pompeu Fabra, Charles U. Prague, Nokia Bell Labs (Paris), McGill U ., Georgia Institute of Technology, U. Chile, IMPA Rio de Janeiro. RandNET deliverables include: the design of algorithms to produce data sets for supervised learning, which will be transformed into open source packages in the Nokia Bell lab and eventually into software products; online network analysis courses that aspire to be a benchmark for the entire scientific community. The project envisages 185 months of research stays, 4 workshops and two summer schools.
