10) CLIS Prof. Jimmy Lin: I used Social Network Analysis (SNA) to visualize related document networks, i.e., documents connected by content similarity links. We considered graphs on the order of hundreds of nodes, but what about: 17 million nodes! all of MEDLINE... As part of the cloud computing course, a team will be working on these large networks, doing things like computing PageRank, finding communities of related papers, etc. See: http://www.umiacs.umd.edu/~jimmylin/cloud-computing/projects/MEDLINE-network-analysis.pdf
