Network diffusion captures the underlying mechanism of how events propagate throughout a complex network. Whether the subject is a virus spreading across a computer network or a viral marketing message among a network of people, the questions are the same: How fast will it spread? How will the system as a whole react? What are the hubs in the network that are more connected and therefore more important than others? Icosystem’s sophisticated simulation techniques produce a diffusion profile that answers those questions and insights into what to do about it.
- Indicates appropriate response–right time, right place, and right control mechanism
- Provides ability to test control strategies
Some possible applications
- Testing the diffusion potential of a computer virus
- Predicting the geographic, age and severity diffusion patterns of a healthcare epidemic
