Maximal Information Propagation via Lotteries [article]

Jing Chen, Bo Li
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We show that in the free market, the participants have a strong incentive to maximally propagate the information and all the above properties are satisfied automatically.  ...  In this work, we design a free market with lotteries, where every participant can decide by herself how much of the reward she wants to withhold before propagating to others.  ...  Conclusion and Future Directions In this work, we design a free market with lotteries to incentivize players to maximally propagate information to their friends.  ...

Maximal Information Propagation with Budgets [article]

Haomin Shi and Yao Zhang and Zilin Si and Letong Wang and Dengji Zhao
2020 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we present an information propagation game on a network where the information is originated from a sponsor who is willing to pay a fixed total budget to the players who propagate the information  ...  Our solution can be applied to real world situations such as advertising via social networks with limited budgets.  ...  All the works above share the same motivation of propagating information via social networks.  ...

Linked Document Embedding for Classification

Suhang Wang, Jiliang Tang, Charu Aggarwal, Huan Liu
2016 Proceedings of the 25th ACM International on Conference on Information and Knowledge Management - CIKM '16  
In this paper, we study the problem of linked document embedding for classification and propose a linked document embedding framework LDE, which combines link and label information with content information  ...  Further experiments are conducted to understand the importance of link and label information in the proposed framework LDE.  ...  .; (2) LDE captures label information via modeling document-label information while PTE uses label information via word-label information; (3) in addition to label information, LDE also models link information  ...

Programming Incentives in Information Systems [chapter]

Ognjen Scekic, Hong-Linh Truong, Schahram Dustdar
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we present fundamental elements of a framework for programmable incentive management in information systems.  ...  Information systems are becoming ever more reliant on different forms of social computing, employing individuals, crowds or assembled teams of professionals.  ...  In [6] the aim is to maximize p2p content sharing. In [7] the authors seek to maximize the extension of social network by motivating people to invite others to visit more content.  ...

Economically Viable Randomness [article]

David Yakira, Avi Asayag, Ido Grayevsky, Idit Keidar
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Randomness is generated via a distributed open commit-reveal scheme by game-theoretic agents who strive to maximize their coin holdings.  ...  Applications of EVR include blockchain-based lotteries and gambling.  ...  We set t as to maximize both the economic worth of the randomness P = n − t, and the maximal player balance allowed e i + a i = 2t − n. This leads us to set: t = 2n 3 .  ...

Risk preferences and pesticide use by cotton farmers in China

Elaine M. Liu, JiKun Huang
2013 Journal of Development Economics  
Farmers also reproduce the trademarked Bt cotton seeds via on-farm propagation despite evidence that these self-propagated seeds are of lower quality (Pray et al., 2002) .  ...  One could imagine instead of maximizing over the Y (yield), farmers are maximizing their utility which is a function of the yield.  ...
