Binding Social and Cultural Networks: A Model

  title={Binding Social and Cultural Networks: A Model},
  author={Camille Roth and Paul Emile Bourgine},
  journal={arXiv: Adaptation and Self-Organizing Systems},
Until now, most studies carried onto social or semantic networks have considered each of these networks independently. Our goal here is to bring a formal frame for studying both networks empirically as well as to point out stylized facts that would explain their reciprocal influence and the emergence of clusters of agents, which may also be regarded as ''cultural cliques''. We show how to apply the Galois lattice theory to the modeling of the coevolution of social and conceptual networks, and…

Co-evolution in Epistemic Networks: Reconstructing Social Complex Systems - A Summary Presentation
It is argued that several significant aspects of the structure of a knowledge community are primarily produced by the co-evolution between agents and concepts, and a morphogenesis model rebuilding relevant high-level stylized facts is proposed, eventually supporting the choice of a co-Evolutionary framework.
Generalized Preferential Attachment : Towards Realistic Socio-Semantic Network Models
The mechanism of preferential attachment underpins most recent social network formation models. Yet few authors attempt to check or quantify assumptions on this mechanism. We call generalized
Measuring Generalized Preferential Attachment in Dynamic Social Networks
Tools for measuring empirically and characterizing comprehensively such phenomena, and applying these tools to a socio-semantic network of scientific collaborations, open the way to a whole class of realistic and credible social network morphogenesis models.
Co-evolution in Epistemic Networks- Reconstructing Social Complex Systems. (Co-évolution dans les Réseaux Epistémiques- Un exemple de reconstruction en sciences sociales)
It is argued that several significant aspects of the structure of a knowledge community are primarily produced by the co-evolution between agents and concepts, i.e. the evolution of an epistemic network.
Belief Systems , Discourse Networks and Institutional Communication in Policy Making : A Second Look on Chemicals Regulation in Germany in the 1980 s
The paper re-analyzes a data set on German chemicals control policy collected in the 1980s. While the original policy network analysis emphasized interest conflict, power resources and
Epistemic Communities: Description and Hierarchic Categorization
A formal framework based on Galois lattices categorizes epistemic communities in an automated and hierarchically structured way and is applied to empirical data to exhibit these alleged structural properties, successfully compared with categories given by domain experts.
Information Granulation-Based Community Detection for Social Networks
An algorithm that can detect communities in the OSNs using the concepts of granular computing in rough sets is proposed, and the cumulative performance of the GBCD algorithm is found to be 3.99, which outperforms other state-of-the-art community detection algorithms.

ISWC 2005 could not take place without the generous support of the following sponsors Super Emerald Sponsors
A case study on the properties of metadata provided by a folksonomy is delivered and a method for selecting subsets of meta-data that adhere to the principle of interest-based locality is developed.


Birds of a Feather: Homophily in Social Networks
Similarity breeds connection. This principle—the homophily principle—structures network ties of every type, including marriage, friendship, work, advice, support, information transfer, exchange,
behavioral, and intrapersonal characteristics. Homophily limits people's social worlds in a way that has powerful implications for the infor- mation they receive, the attitudes they form, and the

It is demonstrated that group structure in networks can also account for degree correlations and that the predicted level of assortative mixing compares well with that observed in real-world networks.

A recursive analysis of network and institutional evolution is offered to account for the decentralized structure of the commercial field of the life sciences. Four alternative logics of

Collective dynamics of ‘small-world’ networks
Simple models of networks that can be tuned through this middle ground: regular networks ‘rewired’ to introduce increasing amounts of disorder are explored, finding that these systems can be highly clustered, like regular lattices, yet have small characteristic path lengths, like random graphs.
The Joint Dynamics of Networks and Knowledge
Evidence is found that the substitution patterns between different types of knowledge and the details of the way partners pool their knowledge is of great importance in determining first the emergence of expertise of a certain type in the economy, and second the stability of a number of network structures.
Statistical mechanics of complex networks
A simple model based on these two principles was able to reproduce the power-law degree distribution of real networks, indicating a heterogeneous topology in which the majority of the nodes have a small degree, but there is a significant fraction of highly connected nodes that play an important role in the connectivity of the network.
Random graphs with arbitrary degree distributions and their applications.
It is demonstrated that in some cases random graphs with appropriate distributions of vertex degree predict with surprising accuracy the behavior of the real world, while in others there is a measurable discrepancy between theory and reality, perhaps indicating the presence of additional social structure in the network that is not captured by the random graph.
