Does Quantum Interference exist in Twitter?

  author={Xin Shuai and Ying Ding and Jerome R. Busemeyer and Yuyin Sun and Shanshan Chen and Jie Tang},
It becomes more difficult to explain the social information transfer phenomena using the classic models based merely on Shannon Information Theory (SIT) and Classic Probability Theory (CPT), because the transfer process in the social world is rich of semantic and highly contextualized. This paper aims to use twitter data to explore whether the traditional models can interpret information transfer in social networks, and whether quantum-like phenomena can be spotted in social networks.

Learning Graph Convolutional Networks based on Quantum Vertex Information Propagation (Extended Abstract)

It is shown that the proposed QSGCNN model can significantly reduce either the information loss or the notorious tottering problem arising in existing spatially-based Graph Convolutional Network models.

Лефлуномид при ревматоидном артрите: актуальные вопросы практического применения

The currently gained clinical experience with leflunomide enables the latter to be recommended for wide application in any types of RA both as basic monotherapy and in combination with other EAIDs and biologicals.



A measurement-driven analysis of information propagation in the flickr social network

Analysis of large-scale traces of information dissemination in the Flickr social network finds that even popular photos do not spread widely throughout the network, and the role of word-of-mouth exchanges between friends in the overall propagation of information in the network is questioned.

Outtweeting the Twitterers - Predicting Information Cascades in Microblogs

A propagation model is proposed that predicts which users are likely to mention which URLs in the social network of Twitter, a popular microblogging site, and correctly accounts for more than half of the URL mentions in the data set.

Correcting for missing data in information cascades

The k-tree model is formulated, a numerical method is proposed that can accurately estimate properties of the complete cascade C even when 90% of the data is missing, and the method is evaluated using information propagation cascades in the Twitter network as well as information cascades arising in the blogosphere.

Maximizing the spread of influence through a social network

An analysis framework based on submodular functions shows that a natural greedy strategy obtains a solution that is provably within 63% of optimal for several classes of models, and suggests a general approach for reasoning about the performance guarantees of algorithms for these types of influence problems in social networks.

What can quantum theory bring to information retrieval

The evaluation shows that the framework can lead to acceptable performance in an ad-hoc retrieval task, and the potential of the framework for three active challenges in information retrieval, namely, interaction, novelty and diversity is discussed.

Characterizing Pure High-Order Entanglements in Lexical Semantic Spaces via Information Geometry

This paper proposes to consider pure high-order entanglements that cannot be reduced to the compositional effect of lower-order ones, as an indicator of high-level semantic entities, and develops a set of methods in the framework of Information Geometry to characterize the intrinsic order of entanglement.

Automata Modeling for Cognitive Interference in Users' Relevance Judgment

Quantum theory has recently been employed to further ad- vance the theory of information retrieval (IR). A challenging research topic is to investigate the so called quantum-like interference in

Quantum Theory and the Nature of Search

Differences in operational semantics of quantum theory and search restrict the utility of the conceptual model and mathematical formalism used in this work, but an approach is suggested for resolving these semantic differences.

A Formalization of Logical Imaging for Information Retrieval Using Quantum Theory

This paper introduces a formalization of Logical Imaging applied to IR in terms of Quantum Theory through the use of an analogy between states of a quantum system and terms in text documents based on the Schrodinger Picture.

Is There Something Quantum-Like about the Human Mental Lexicon?

Following an early claim by Nelson & McEvoy (35) suggesting that word associations can display 'spooky action at a distance behaviour', a serious investigation of the potentially quantum nature of
