Analyzing online political discussion using three models of democratic communication

Deen G. Freelon
2010 New Media & Society  
For each model, a set of definitional variables drawn from the broader online forum literature is documented and discussed.  ...  Research examining online political forums has until now been overwhelmingly guided by two broad perspectives: (1) a deliberative conception of democratic communication and (2) a diverse collection of  ...  Further, to the extent that a forum's idiosyncratic 'culture' can be considered a level of analysis (Dahlgren, 2005) , the deductive nature of the three-model approach precludes the serendipitous discovery  ...

Topic Modeling with Wasserstein Autoencoders [article]

Feng Nan, Ran Ding, Ramesh Nallapati, Bing Xiang
2019 arXiv   pre-print
To measure the diversity of the produced topics, we propose a simple topic uniqueness metric.  ...  We propose a novel neural topic model in the Wasserstein autoencoders (WAE) framework.  ...  The range of the TU value is between 1/K and 1. A higher TU value means the produced topics are more diverse.  ...

Choice Modelling in Social Networks Using Stochastic Actor-Oriented Models

Sebastian Pink, David Kretschmer, Lars Leszczensky
2020 Journal of Choice Modeling
