The Seed Salon | Albert-László Barabási + James Fowler

Barabási mathematically describes networks in the World Wide Web, the internet, the human body, and society at large. Fowler seeks to identify the social and biological links that define us as humans. In this video Salon, Barabási and Fowler discuss contagion and the Obama campaign, debate the natural selection of robustness, and ask: Is society turning inward?

An interesting conversation about social networks – the physicist & the social scientist – not a clash of opposing fields, rather an attempt to understand.
