Behavioral Link Analytics on Heterogeneous Human Interaction Networks

Martin Atzmueller
2020 International Journal of Transdisciplinary Artificial Intelligence  
The analysis is performed on a real-world dataset capturing networks of proximity interactions coupled with self-report questionnaires about preferences and perception of those interactions.  ...  This paper investigates face-to-face as well as socio-spatial interaction networks for modeling user interactions from three perspectives: We analyze preferences and perceptions of human social interactions  ...  As in [17] , we record a proximity contact when the length of a contact is at least 20 seconds. A contact ends when the proximity tags do not detect each other for more than 20 seconds.  ...

Human mobility, social ties, and link prediction

Dashun Wang, Dino Pedreschi, Chaoming Song, Fosca Giannotti, Albert-Laszlo Barabasi
2011 Proceedings of the 17th ACM SIGKDD international conference on Knowledge discovery and data mining - KDD '11  
We further investigate how the predictive power hidden in such correlations can be exploited to address a challenging problem: which new links will develop in a social network.  ...  Our understanding of how individual mobility patterns shape and impact the social network is limited, but is essential for a deeper understanding of network dynamics and evolution.  ...  These shared social foci and face-to-face interactions, represented as overlap in individuals' trajectories, are expected to have significant impact on the structure of social networks, from the maintenance  ...
