Deriving Players & Themes in the Regesta Imperii using SVMs and Neural Networks

This work investigates the Regesta Imperii for important players and themes, applying state-of-the-art text classification methods from computational linguistics and examines the performance of different classification methods in view of the linguistically very heterogeneous RI.

Induction of a Large-Scale Knowledge Graph from the Regesta Imperii

A Knowledge Graph is induced and visualize a Knowledge Graph over the Regesta Imperii, an important large-scale resource for medieval history research, to provide a resource for historians to visualize and query the RI.



Quantitative Analysis of Culture Using Millions of Digitized Books

This work surveys the vast terrain of ‘culturomics,’ focusing on linguistic and cultural phenomena that were reflected in the English language between 1800 and 2000, and shows how this approach can provide insights about fields as diverse as lexicography, the evolution of grammar, collective memory, the adoption of technology and the pursuit of fame.

Between Order and Chaos

One of the earliest form of agents is called a cellular automata (CA), which consists of a lattice of cells, or sites, whose value is commonly expressed as 0 or 1, black or white, on or off, or a color selected from a set of colors.

Talk Before You Type: Coordination in Wikipedia

The results suggest that despite the potential for anarchy, the Wikipedia community places a strong emphasis on group coordination, policy, and process.

The Major Transitions in Evolution

This book discusses the origins of societies, development and evolution, and the development of spatial patterns in simple organisms.

Cooperation and quality in wikipedia

It is shown that Wikipedia articles accrete edits according to a simple stochastic mechanism in which edits beget edits, and Topics of high interest or relevance are thus naturally brought to the forefront of quality.

Power of the Few vs . Wisdom of the Crowd : Wikipedia and the Rise of the Bourgeoisie

Although Wikipedia was driven by the influence of “elite” users early on, more recently there has been a dramatic shift in workload to the “common” user, and this is shown in del.icio.us, a very different type of social collaborative knowledge system.

Natural selection maximizes Fisher information

    Journal of evolutionary biology
  • 2009
This work shows that Fisher information arises as the intrinsic metric of natural selection and evolutionary dynamics, and shows a relation between Fisher information and Shannon information (entropy) that may help to unify the correspondence between information and dynamics.

Measuring Wikipedia

A first overview and outlook on Wikipedia research is given because Wikipedia is particularly interesting to cybermetric research because of the richness of phenomena and because its data is fully accessible.

He says, she says: conflict and coordination in Wikipedia

The growth of non-direct work in Wikipedia is examined and the development of tools to characterize conflict and coordination costs in Wikipedia are described, which may inform the design of new collaborative knowledge systems.
