New Network Analysis Logo!

written by Eric J. Ma on 2016-06-24 | tags: network analysis teaching education tutorials

I just finished reworking the examples that I'm using for my Network Analysis tutorial, and I managed to create a representative logo for it! :)


Inspired by Giles Hall, who hashed people's names to create uniquely procedurally-generated snowflakes (implying that everybody's a special snowflake, that is) (talk). In this case, I wrote a function that computes a numerical hash of a person's name, which is then parsed into a string to determine the order in which each of those network diagrams are added on.

More details can be found in this notebook!
