How close are we? Is it really ‘six degrees of separation’ between you and anyone in the world? Where is an affective context in a network of people and machines? How do we learn from social network connections? Is there a hidden common pattern between cell-to-cell, human-to-human, or galaxy-to-galaxy relations? Is it all about making groups? Is social behaviour an essence to understanding processes in, between and around people? How do we embed social behaviour into machine-to-machine friendly behaviour? Is massive social networking the key to making a new generation of artificial intelligence? Have we found the real power of connectedness?

Our SocialLAB research group seeks answers to the above questions. We explore connectedness in a social space of people and machines with all of its spices and shapes. We focus on the massive social networks of people and machines, their relations and pervasion. We try to learn from online human social behaviour to make such social machines and, we try to persuade machines to serve us, and not the other way around.
