Finding Experts in Social Media Data using a Hybrid Approach

  title={Finding Experts in Social Media Data using a Hybrid Approach},
  author={Simon James Brady},
Several approaches to the problem of expert finding have emerged in computer science research. In this work, three of these approaches content analysis, social graph analysis and the use of Semantic Web technologies are examined. An integrated set of system requirements is then developed that uses all three approaches in one hybrid approach. To show the practicality of this hybrid approach, a usable prototype expert finding system called ExpertQuest is developed using a modern functional…

Expert finding on social network with link analysis approach

In this research a novel model based on social network analysis is proposed to find the experts who are the members of social networks by means of business intelligence approach and the obtained results are compared to the experts' opinions utilizing spearman's correlation function.

Formal models for expert finding in enterprise corpora

This work presents two general strategies to expert searching given a document collection which are formalized using generative probabilistic models, and shows that the second strategy consistently outperforms the first.

A Survey of Algorithms and Systems for Expert Location in Social Networks

This chapter describes algorithms that identify effective expert teams within a network of experts that compute the expertise level of individuals by taking into account their position in such a network.

Observational learning of tool-use by young chimpanzees

These findings complement naturalistic observations in suggesting that chimpanzee tool-use is in some sense «culturally transmitted» — though perhaps not in the same sense as social-conventional behaviors for which precise copying of conspecifics is crucial.

Factors involved in the acquisition and the benefit of tool use are discussed along with factors affecting the frequency and complexity of tool making in chimpanzees.

Animal tool use: current definitions and an updated comprehensive catalog

An updated, comprehensive catalog of documented animal tool use is presented that indicates whether the behaviours observed included any 'true' tool use, whether the observations were limited to captive animals, whether tool manufacture has been observed, and whether the observed tool use was limited to only one individual and, thus, 'anecdotal' (i.e., N = 1).

An initial attempt at a systematic method for describing the complexity and diversity of these early technologies is presented and results suggest that rates of Palaeolithic culture change may have been underestimated and that there is a direct relationship between increasing technological complexity and Diversity.

Awareness of Organizational Expertise

The architecture and use of collaboration and expert finder systems to enhance organizational awareness, provides some principles of expertise, and concludes with an outline of future research directions.
