Computational Analysis of Collective Behaviors via Agent-Based Modeling [chapter]

Lilian Weng, Filippo Menczer
2013 Handbook of Human Computation  
As a case study, we present an experiment using an agent-based model to study how competition for limited user attention in a social network results in collective patterns of meme popularity.  ...  The combination of social network structure and finite agent attention is sufficient for the emergence of broad diversity in meme popularity and lifetime.  ...  In general, agent-based models can be very useful in identifying minimal hypotheses consistent with collective patterns generated by human computation systems.  ...
