Location: Gramercy A Level: Intermediate

Who is this presentation for?

  • Data scientists, data engineers, data analysts, marketing analysts, software engineers, and those in business intelligence

Prerequisite knowledge

  • A working knowledge of Python

Materials or downloads needed in advance

  • A laptop

What you'll learn

  • Learn how to generate network structures, manipulate network data, analyze structural network properties, calculate network measures, and visualize networks
  • Understand different network models


Networks, also known as graphs, are one of the most crucial data structures in our increasingly intertwined world. Social friendship networks, the web, financial systems, and infrastructure are all network structures. Knowing how to analyze the underlying network topology of interconnected systems can provide an invaluable skill in anyone’s toolbox.

Noemi Derzsy explains how to generate, manipulate, analyze, and visualize graph structures that will help you gain insight about relationships between elements in your data. You’ll start by exploring the basic network types and the most-often-encountered network models in real data. You’ll learn the most informative network measures to understand the network structure and behaviors. Noemi then walks you through using public social networks data to construct, analyze, and visualize the social network and understand the structure and connectivity behaviors. You’ll leave with the knowledge you need to take on a network analysis project.

Topics include:

  • Generating network structures of various types (directed, weighted, multigraphs, etc.)
  • Manipulating networks and graph data
  • Analyzing structural network properties
  • Different graph models
  • Calculating network measures
  • Visualizing networks
  • Real-world case studies
