Connection Science

The Connection Science group aims to revolutionize the world’s largest digital networks, rather than be controlled by them.

Through intensive, multi-disciplinary research, the Connection Science group provides ground-breaking insights into human behavior and fosters innovation to improve lives. Within Connection Science are three areas of focus that build upon technology-mediated human networks through analysis, prediction, data-driven design and evaluation.
