2014 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
Based on the biological school of phylogenetic classification, we develop a cladogram that captures the evolution process and classifies the industry's business models.  ...  In this paper we attempt a historical analysis of the video game industry business model evolution and examine the process through the prism of two-sided market economics.  ...  Acknowledgments We acknowledge the financial support from the EPSRC and ESRC Digital Economy Programme: NEMOG -New Economic Models and Opportunities for Digital Games, grant number EP/K039857.  ...

A maximum of 92.90% classification accuracy is obtained using the features of IMF-4 with 10-fold cross-validation. The results conclude that the proposed method can detect AD patients efficiently.  ...  The selected features from EEG recordings of 23 subjects (AD-12 and NC-11) are used to train and test the Leastsquare support vector machine (LS-SVM) classifier with three different kernel functions.  ...  I grew up playing video games and has seen this industry grow and change with time.  ...
