Furkan Gursoy

I am a PhD Candidate at Bogazici University, Istanbul. My research interests can roughly be categorized under the keywords network science, complex systems, and data science. You can find links to my publications on this page. My colleagues and I also have number of submitted and ongoing research which range from agent-based modeling to system dynamics, scientometrics to online user behavior, and computer vision to ML applications in business. I am currently focusing on the intersection of machine learning and networks, and applications of machine learning on graph databases.

 

Datasets by Furkan Gürsoy contains original network datasets you can use in your own research.

 

News

In June 2020, I became an elected member of the Advisory Board of Young Researchers of the Complex Systems Society (yrCSS). Make sure to visit yrCSS website to learn more about it and its programs.

On 23 Nov 2019, I gave an introductory tutorial on Social Network Analysis with R at the R-Ladies Istanbul Meetup. The tutorial is available in Turkish on this page.

On 9 Nov 2019, we presented our work titled "Solving Combinatorial Optimization Problems with RL" as part of inzva AI Projects #3. The slides and code are available at this repository.

On 11 May 2019, we presented our work titled "Image Restoration/Learning to See in the Dark" as part of inzva AI Projects #2. The slides and code are available at this repository.
