Homogeneity-Based Transmissive Process to Model True and False News in Social Networks

Jooyeon Kim, Dongkwan Kim, Alice Oh
2019 Proceedings of the Twelfth ACM International Conference on Web Search and Data Mining - WSDM '19  
An overwhelming number of true and false news stories are posted and shared in social networks, and users diffuse the stories based on multiple factors.  ...  Our model extends hierarchical Dirichlet process to model the topics of the news stories and incorporates Bayesian Gaussian process latent variable model to discover the homogeneity values.  ...  There are feature-based methods that leverage text, social network, temporal traces and propagation models to classify true and false news in supervised fashion [39, 50, 20, 29, 72, 70, 31, 32] .  ...

Combating fake news by empowering fact-checked news spread via topology-based interventions [article]

Ke Wang, Waheeb Yaqub, Abdallah Lakhdari, Basem Suleiman
2021 arXiv   pre-print
The obtained results demonstrate that empowering the diffusion of fact-checked news combats the spread of false news further and deeper in social networks.  ...  Our methodology mainly relies on defining the potential super-spreaders in a social network based on their centrality metrics.  ...  The contribution of this paper is a novel centrality-based information diffusion model for true news to combat conflicting false news in large social networks.  ...

Cultural diffusion dynamics depend on behavioural production rules [article]

Michael Chimento, Brendan J. Barrett, Anne Kandler, Lucy M. Aplin
2021 bioRxiv   pre-print
Transmission and production are often discussed interchangeably or modeled separately, yet to date, no study has accounted for both processes and explored their interaction.  ...  We then investigate how such dependencies might affect the performance of two commonly used inferential models for social learning; Network-based Diffusion Analysis (NBDA), and Experienced Weighted Attraction  ...  To accomplish this, we construct a generative agent-based model of cultural diffusion that synthesizes both processes in networked populations.  ...
