Alessandro Vespignani received his undergraduate degree and Ph.D., both in physics and both from the University of Rome "La Sapienza", in 1990 and 1994 respectively. After holding research positions at Yale University and Leiden University, he has been a member of the condensed matter research group at the International Center for Theoretical Physics (UNESCO) in Trieste. Before joining Indiana University,Vespignani has been a faculty of the Laboratoire de Physique Theorique at the University of Paris-Sud working for the French National Council for Scientific Research (CNRS).
This talk will focus on the study of "techno-social" systems, where infrastructures composed of different technological layers are interoperating within the social component that drives their use and development. In this context we aim at understanding how the very same elements assembled in large number can give rise to different macroscopic and dynamical behaviors, opening the path to quantitative computational approaches and forecasting power.
