Capstone Project: Data and Knowledge Engineering

Problem Statement: Given an instance of set of nodes (users) in a social network graph, the aim is to find the influencing (important) users and to predict the likelihood of a future association (edge) between two nodes, knowing that there is no association between the nodes in the current state of the graph.

Python Libraries:

  • Plotly graphing library for making interactive, publication-quality graphs online.
  • IGraph a collection of network analysis tools with the emphasis on efficiency, portability and ease of use. igraph is open source and free.
  • NumPy adds support for large, multi-dimensional arrays and matrices along with a large collection of high level mathematical functions to operate on these arrays. (dependency- Scikit)
  • SciPy an open source Python library used for scientific computing and technical computing.(dependency- Scikit)
  • scikit-learn simple and efficient tool for data mining and data analysis. Used for dimensionality reduction and implementing machine learning algorithms.
