(Social) Network Analysis has been, and is currently, under investigation. Indeed, it is rooted in graph theory, has received a lot of attention from sociologists in the second half of the last century, and a renewed interest from computer scientists in the last decades, with the advent of Online Social Networks and Internet of Things. In this seminar, we illustrate how (Social) Network Analysis can be used as a paradigm to perform knowledge extraction in several, very heterogeneous, research contexts. In particular, we show how the same notions, parameters and constructs can be successfully exploited to extract useful knowledge from data lakes, neurological systems, Internet of Things and patent repositories.
