Query Incentive Networks [chapter]

Prabhakar Raghavan
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Here we formulate a model for query incentive networks, motivated by such systems: users seeking information or services can pose queries, together with incentives for answering them, that are propagated  ...  We study the size of query incentives as a function both of the rarity of the answer and the structure of the underlying network.  ...  findable paths joining queriers and answerers -the considerations above highlight the fundamental incentive issues at work in the operation of such networks.  ...

Social networks, incentives, and search

Jon Kleinberg
2006 Proceedings of the 29th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '06  
This body of work has focused primarily on the network that is most clearly visible on the Web: the network of hyperlinks connecting documents to documents.  ...  on some recent efforts to formalize the problem of searching a social network.  ...  In a simple model for decentralized search in the presence of incentives, we find that performance depends crucially on both the rarity of the information and the richness of the network topology [12]  ...

Network Externalities and Interconnection Incentives

Margit A. Vanberg
2005 Social Science Research Network  
What does this imply for interconnection incentives between competing network operators in a market characterized by network externalities?  ...  The paper comes to the conclusion that only when a network operator previously has network specific market power due to the ownership of a monopolistic bottleneck network area, can network externalities  ...  It is possible, however, that the social incentives for compatibility are not congruent to the firm incentives for compatibility.  ...

Network Software Security and User Incentives

Terrence August, Tunay I. Tunca
2006 Management science  
W e study the effect of user incentives on software security in a network of individual users under costly patching and negative network security externalities.  ...  For proprietary software or freeware, we compare four alternative policies to manage network security: (i) consumer self-patching (where no external incentives are provided for patching or purchasing);  ...  incentive mechanisms that may be helpful in increasing the value generated by network software in the face of security vulnerabilities.  ...

case of just one cooperator in the network.  ...  We propose a simple mechanism based on taxes and subsidies to enhance high cooperation in evolutionary networks.  ...  Since the parameter b represents the incentive to defect in the PD game, we consider the subsidy β as an incentive to cooperate in the network formation.  ...

An incentive mechanism for P2P networks

R.T.B. Ma, S.C.M. Lee, J.C.S. Lui, D.K.Y. Yau
2004 24th International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems, 2004. Proceedings.  
The current peer-to-peer (P2P) information sharing paradigm does not provide incentive and service differentiation for users.  ...  In this paper, we address how one can incorporate incentive into the P2P information sharing paradigm so as to encourage users to share information and resources.  ...  The design of an incentive protocol for P2P networks is imperative.  ...

Network Incentives in Managed Health Care

Ching-To Albert Ma, Thomas G. Mcguire
2002 Journal of Economics and Management Strategy  
This paper introduces a theory of network incentives in managed health care.  ...  We identify a network effect in our empirical work. The results indicate that in this case, network incentives account for most of the quantity reduction due to managed care.  ...  In this paper, we model providers' incentives under a network, and set out a theory of how a network functions.  ...

Network Neutrality and Provider Investment Incentives

John Musacchio, Jean Walrand, Galina Schwartz
2007 Asilomar Conference on Signals, Systems and Computers. Conference Record  
This paper develops and analyzes a game theoretic model to study how the network regime (neutral or non-neutral) affects provider investment incentives, network quality and user prices.  ...  We formulate the conditions under which a non-neutral network is more favorable for providers and users.  ...  CONCLUSIONS We study how the network regime affects investment incentives of transit and content providers.  ...

Membership and incentives in network alliances

A.S. Dexter, B.R. Nault
2006 IEEE transactions on engineering management

Incentive mechanisms for user-provided networks

George Iosifidis, Lin Gao, Jianwei Huang, Leandros Tassiulas
2014 IEEE Communications Magazine  
In this paper, we analyze the design challenges of incentive mechanisms for encouraging user engagement in user-provided networks.  ...  Similarly, an operator's incentive of supporting UPNs would be high if he can directly gain from such services.  ...  Similar incentive issues exist for peer-to-peer and ad hoc networks.  ...
