Science on Screen: The Social Network
9 February, 2016 @ 8:40 pm - 11:00 pm£9.50
Network pioneer Michelle Girvan asks how her field of research reflects and is reflected in our social lives. Girvan discusses how social media websites like Facebook, which have dramatically transformed the nature of human interactions, are invaluable to scientists because they generate and store massive amounts of Big Data which can be used to gain new insights into human behavior.
The true story of the man who invented Facebook, Harvard computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg (Jesse Eisenberg), and the legal battles, destroyed relationships and personal anguish it took him to win 500 million online friends and become the youngest billionaire in the world.
Directed by David Fincher (Fight Club), we expect a dark and intelligent drama on the social phenomenon of our time. Also starring Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake.
