Part I – Open Ended Questions (50 points total; 10 points per question) Note: Remember your answers should aim to be four sentences in length at minimum. Use more space for your answers as needed. You can hand draw examples if needed. I am a big supporter of sketches. 1. What is the topic you have selected for your semester project and why? List three other topics that would be relat- ed to your semester project topic. You do NOT need to have three actual datasets. I am looking for just the topics so you can use them for your examples in questions 2-5 below. Answer1 : In the analysis of networks we often look for the impact of nodes on the whole network. Since we are living in gloomy times, the idea of a pandemic fascinated us. Every person in this world is connected and that person to another and so on, which leads to a huge network of people meeting in social places and on platforms, our goal for the project is to simulate that experience and showcase how a virus has the potential to change how we interact. Be it a social gatherings, social distancing, wearing a masks, test results before and after cover infection and in between days where one cannot be sure, transmission range, effect as per the age and various analysis. Second topic: Prediction when people change jobs based on social media data for example; LinkedIn- In this project, I am going to pre- dict when people will change their jobs based on LinkedIn profiles and jobs dataset. Also, planning to connect the same university or work people together and their common sharable learning source so that people can learn from each other and stay connected in this virtual world of the pandemic. Lastly, I wanted to scrape my friend list and create a directed network, this can give me insights like which skincare, cos- metics, clothes, shoes my friends use or buy, from where they buy and comparison of price, discounts including coupon code discount data and notification when it is right time to buy on basis of offers that repeats yearly and compare the same product bought in different prices and which is cheaper. 2. Explain what makes a social network dataset different than a traditional dataset such as Excel? Provide an exam- ple (from the 3 you listed in #1) that compares a social network dataset and a traditional dataset. Be sure to clearly mark the key points. Answer2 : A traditional dataset is about an entity with its several attributes. Traditional data sets such as in excel consists of rows and columns where rows are keys and columns are data associated within them.
