Extracting Actionable Knowledge from Social Networks using Structural Features

Nasrin Kalanat, Eynollah Khanjari, Alireza Khanshan
2020 IEEE Access  
INDEX TERMS Social networks mining, action mining, actionable knowledge discovery, structural features, change propagation, change-awareness.  ...  Actionable knowledge discovery is a field of study specifically developed for this matter. Existing methods rarely tackled the problem of extracting actionable knowledge from social networks.  ...  They benefit from a causal structure obtained from data and use causal inference to extract actions based on causality.  ...

Levels of the social [chapter]

Daniel Little
2007 Philosophy of Anthropology and Sociology  
Can we assert causal connections from one level to another? Do high-level social structures have causal powers? Do they have effects on local behavior and local institutions?  ...  How do familiar objects of social science investigation like systems of norms, social networks, local social units, families, labor organizations, practices, organizations, institutions, and political  ...  Structuralism asserts that social structures have causal powers that are independent from the actions and states of mind of individuals; social causation is in some sense autonomous from the states and  ...

Theorisation In Critical Realist Is Research And Its Implications On Structure And Agency Interplay: A Morphogenetic Approach

Chidi G. Ononiwu, Irwin Brown
2013 European Conference on Information Systems  
Drawing on Archer's morphogenetic approach, derived from the critical realism (CR) philosophy, we discuss the relevance of understanding theory/theorisation from a critical realist perspective and its  ...  We then propose the morphogenetic model of emergent IT usage behaviour which questions the assumption of the duality of structure and agency, instead of conceptualising them separately.  ...  and technological contexts to constitute a network-in-use for everyday life banking activities of users, none of whom have complete knowledge of the entire network, and all of whom are conditioned by the  ...
