Agnese Augello, Giuseppe Città, Manuel Gentile, Antonio Lieto
2021 arXiv   pre-print
To the best of our knowledge, this represents the first attempt of building a persuasive agent able to integrate a mix of explicitly grounded cognitive assumptions about dialogue management, storytelling  ...  The portfolio of persuasive techniques tested in such a model ranges from the use of storytelling, to framing techniques and rhetorical-based arguments.  ...  By contrast, conformity theory focuses on normative influence, stating that people who belong to a group usually experience a pressure to conform to the expectations of the other group members.  ...

Polarized Ukraine 2014: opinion and territorial split demonstrated with the bounded confidence XY model, parametrized by Twitter data

Maksym Romenskyy, Viktoria Spaiser, Thomas Ihle, Vladimir Lobaskin
2018 Royal Society Open Science  
We demonstrate that the level of emotional intensity is a major driving force for polarization that can lead to a spontaneous onset of collective behavior at a certain degree of homophily and conformity  ...  In an attempt to understand the mechanisms of these phenomena, we here combine social media analysis with agent-based modeling of opinion dynamics, targeting Ukraine's crisis of 2014.  ...  For instance, persuasive arguments in an environment of biased information can further push an individual to adopt a more extreme attitude than expressed in the group they compare themselves to.  ...
