UT ECE professor Sriram Vishwanath has been awarded a $300,000 grant by the Army Research Office for Research in Social Networks. His research is focused on understanding the theoretical underpinnings of such networks, and developing algorithms that are inspired by an information theoretic analysis of social networks. The end goal of this project will be a suite of algorithms that can be used to infer social behavior between users from any database of social interactions.
