Group Awarded an $800K Google Research Grant Includes Three OR Field Members
Jon Kleinberg, Robert Kleinberg and Eva Tardos are among the ten Cornell faculty members comprising the Center for the Interface of Networks, Computation and Economics (CINCE). The Center was founded to facilitate collaboration across the campus on research involving social and economic aspects of complex interconnected systems. The three are members of the field of operations research as well as professors of computer science. At Cornell, fields are the primary organizational element of the Graduate School.
Jon Kleinberg is the lead author of a proposal to Google, Inc. to "examine how social network phenomena affect large-scale information systems and how such systems can be transformed to provide more meaningful experiences for on-line users." The proposal led to an $800K Google research grant. Other members of CINCE are from economics, information science, communication, sociology, and computer science.
