  Title Modularity and Information Spreading in Networks
  Abstract Our life relies on various complex networks, such as cellular networks, brain networks, and social networks. For instance, a human brain is a network of neurons connected through synapses; our society is a network of people connected through social relationships. Networks exhibit modular structures that often correspond to functional units of the system. Discovering such modular structures and understanding their implications has been a challenging question. This talk will discuss how modularity can fundamentally alter how information spreads in a system, and how such understanding can allow us to predict viral memes or design a better performing neural networks.
