Automating agent-based modeling: Data-driven generation and application of innovation diffusion models

Thorben Jensen, Émile J.L. Chappin
2017 Environmental Modelling & Software  
We present an approach that automates the generation of diffusion models by: (1) preprocessing of empirical data on the diffusion of a specific innovation, taken out by the user; (2) testing variations  ...  of agent-based models for their capability of explaining the data; (3) assessing interventions for their potential to influence the spreading of the innovation.  ...  Agent-based modeling of innovation diffusion This section will provide details on agent-based modeling of innovation diffusion, which is the application domain of the proposed automation procedure.  ...

A Methodology for Integrating Network Theory and Topic Modeling and its Application to Innovation Diffusion

Jana Diesner, Kathleen M. Carley
2010 2010 IEEE Second International Conference on Social Computing  
: we use network analysis to identify groups of individuals who assume the theoretically grounded roles of change agents and preservation agents.  ...  Text data pertaining to socio-technical networks often are analyzed separately from relational data, or are reduced to the fact and strength of the flow of information between nodes.  ...  This decisionmaking process is not fully automated, but requires data-driven and case-wise decisions. Thus, the presented methodology requires a basic understanding of network analysis.  ...
