Network science strives to make sense of the many webs that connect us. When it comes to social networks, we’ve heard the refrain: if the product is free, you are the product. But networks are also used to rank web pages, predict economic patterns, track extremist groups, and even understand complex narratives like Game of Thrones. So, are networks mostly good, or mostly bad, or something else altogether?

Featuring Professor Andrew Beveridge, mathematics, statistics, and computer science, and Kofi Amoo-Gottfried ’01, Vice President of marketing, DoorDash, and President Brian Rosenberg in a conversation about the progress and pitfalls of using networks to understand and change the world we live in.
