Prediction of Ideas Number During a Brainstorming Session

  title={Prediction of Ideas Number During a Brainstorming Session},
  author={Hassan Ait Haddou and Guy Camilleri and Pascale Zarat{\'e}},
  journal={Group Decision and Negotiation},
In this paper, we present an approach allowing the prediction of ideas number during a brainstorming session. This prediction is based on two dynamic models of brainstorming, the non-cognitive and the cognitive models proposed by Brown and Paulus (Small Group Res 27(1):91–114, 1996). These models describe for each participant, the evolution of ideas number over time, and are formalized by differential equations. Through solution functions of these models, we propose to calculate the number of… Expand
