What your age really says about your chance of success at work Albert-László Barabási is a physicist and a network scientist, focusing on a variety of natural, technological and social networks. He is the Robert Gray Dodge Professor of Network Science at Northeastern University. He is also a lecturer at Harvard Medical School. What are ultra-processed foods? What should I eat instead? The site was created by Giulia Menichetti and Albert-László Barabási, two scientists at Northeastern University who study ultra-processed foods and developed a database of over 50,000 foods sold in grocery stores. Navigating the grocery aisles with AI Albert-László Barabási, Giulia Menichetti and Babak Ravandi, data scientists at Northeastern University, and Dariush Mozaffarian of the Dorothy R. Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University decided to rely on artificial intelligence. The Art Market Often Works in Secret. Here’s a Look Inside. Dr. Barabasi is a professor of network science at Northeastern University and at Central European University. He leads the BarabasiLab, a collective of scientists and artists. Coronavirus: AI steps up in battle against Covid-19 In the US, a partnership between Northeastern University’s Barabasi Labs, Harvard Medical School, the Network Science Institute and biotech start-up Scipher Medicine is also on the search for drugs that can quickly be repurposed as Covid-19 treatments. Nature News Imagine a world without hunger, then make it happen with systems thinking But using machine learning and artificial intelligence, network scientist Albert László Barabási at Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, and his colleagues propose that human diets consist of at least 26,000 biochemicals — and that the vast majority are not known (Nature Food 1, 33–37; 2020). Inside Science Studying Food’s ‘Dark Matter’ Could Help Illuminate Diet’s Ties to Health “We set out to say, how can we combine info about food and disease causation,” said Albert-László Barabási, a network scientist at Northeastern University in Boston. Scientific American Failure Found to be an “Essential Prerequisite” For Success Wang’s model, tested now in three disparate domains, shows promise as a tool in other arenas, says Albert-László Barabási, director of the Center for Complex Network Research at Northeastern University and author of The Formula: The Universal Laws of Success. Prescription: More Broccoli, Fewer Carbs. How Some Doctors Are Looking To Food To Treat Illness In a different study at Northeastern University, researchers are using big data to better understand how individual nutrients affect the body and brain. Albert-László Barabási, a computer scientist at Northeastern, says that of the 17,000 chemicals identified in food, we only know how about 150 of them affect the body. So he’s combing published research across the […] Albert-László Barabási for Northeastern Global News New network science center aims to revolutionize large-scale manufacturing with discovery of new solid materials New network science center aims to revolutionize large-scale manufacturing with discovery of new solid materials A team of NU researchers will be part of an effort to establish a center to study new ways of harnessing the power of network science. Network Science Institute expansion to London creates new European hub for trailblazing academic field Network Science Institute expansion to London creates new European hub for trailblazing academic field Northeastern brings its hallmark network science program to its UK campus to amplify its global approach to complex contemporary challenges.

Is your food ultra-processed? This algorithm will tell you. Is your food ultra-processed? This algorithm will tell you. Researchers have developed a machine learning algorithm they say accurately predicts the degree of processing in food products. Network scientists identify 40 new drugs to test against COVID-19 Network scientists identify 40 new drugs to test against COVID-19 Researchers mapped the way proteins behave after a cell is hijacked by the virus to find drugs that might be able to fight COVID. It’s not just your genes that are killing you. Everything else is, too. It’s not just your genes that are killing you. Everything else is, too. Environmental factors drive most of our risk for non-communicable diseases, says Albert-László Barbási, Robert Gray Dodge Professor. Unraveling the chemical compounds in food could improve how we manage our health Unraveling the chemical compounds in food could improve how we manage our health The USDA tracks only a fraction of the chemical compounds in our food. Giulia Menichetti, an associate research scientist at Northeastern’s Center for Complex Network Research, is trying to map all of them, to help us live longer, healthier lives. Six Northeastern professors named to list of ‘highly cited researchers’ around the globe Six Northeastern professors named to list of ‘highly cited researchers’ around the globe Treating cancer and other diseases in novel ways. Discovering a new antibiotic. Understanding why people become successful. These groundbreaking research achievements are among the accomplishments of six faculty members who have been recognized for the high rate at which their papers have been cited by other researchers. What can 3D printing tell us about the human brain? What can 3D printing tell us about the human brain? Researchers at the Center for Complex Network Research have developed a new model to study the properties of networks that exist in 3D space. What does it take to succeed? What does it take to succeed? Achievement is one thing. Success is something else entirely. This is the message of Northeastern network scientist Albert-László Barabási, whose research shows that the top performers aren’t always recognized as the best in their fields. Success, Barabási said Thursday at a public discussion with Northeastern President Joseph E. Aoun, is a collective measure that captures how people respond to our performance.
