lecture / presentation description
Throughout all of music, you may notice that many bands share connections with other artists. Maybe one musician was in both bands, they could have collaborated on a song together, or perhaps even one band covered a song from the other. Using these connections as the edges in a graph data structure, we'll investigate the relationships among musicians. With a variety of computer algorithms at our fingertips, we will explore and calculate meaningful numerical representations of how connected musicians are with each other.
