MOBILITY MAY DETRIMENT EPIDEMICS

Here we reveal that, counterintuitively, mobility may prevent diseases from spreading. This effect is observed through the theoretical analysis of a metapopulation model aimed at incorporating real demographic and commuting patterns observed in cities, regions and countries.

HUMAN COOPERATIVE PHENOTYPES

In this study we explore the behavior of humans when facing different types social dilemmas. Surprisingly, when applying  unsupervised clustering algorithms to categorize human decissions we discover 4 types of consistent behaviors: Envious, Optimist, Pessimist, and Trustful.

HOW THINGS BECOME VIRAL?

In this article, we show that explosive transitions can also occur when our acquaintances are highly reluctant to accept new social phenomena. This seemingly paradoxical result is especially relevant to social media such as YouTube, Facebook or Whatsapp, in which acceptance of new ideas depends on both its intrinsic value and perceived value given by our peers.

RICH DON'T RISE EARLY

Here we analyzed the spatio-temporal patterns of human daily commutes in several cities of Colombia. The division into 6 socio-economic classes of the Colombian society helps us to analyze the main differences between the commuting patterns of poor and rich groups. This study helps to elucidate the socio-economic distance between humans living in the same society.
