Predicting Active Users' Personality Based on Micro-Blogging Behaviors

Lin Li, Ang Li, Bibo Hao, Zengda Guan, Tingshao Zhu, Chunyu Liu
2014 PLoS ONE  
Their personality traits were measured by the Big Five Inventory, and digital records of micro-blogging behaviors were collected via web crawlers.  ...  The classification accuracy ranged from 84% to 92%. We also built regression models utilizing PaceRegression methods, predicting participants' scores on each dimension of the Big Five Inventory.  ...  Such correlation-based conclusions could not be used directly to predict web users' personality traits, and measures of web use behaviors rely on self-report technique.  ...

2008 Telecommunications Systems  
They clearly indicate that the proposed analytic model can indeed accurately predict the performance of the dynamic pool size behavior of an Apache Web server.  ...  It analyzes its dynamic pool size behavior. For the first time, we propose a queueing model to approximate the performance of the latter.  ...  Here, we focus on the MPM non-threaded Prefork processing module and try to capture the dynamic behavior of the pool size under various workload conditions by an analytic model.  ...

Chaotic dynamics in food web systems [chapter]

Gregor F. Fussmann
2007 Complex Population Dynamics  
I argue that mathematical models which allow for the specific structural properties of natural food webs are more likely to predict realistic patterns of chaos and stability in field and experimental food  ...  Simple mathematical models predict frequent chaotic dynamics for food webs of relatively low complexity suggesting that the long-term dynamics of natural populations could be essentially unpredictable.  ...  Numerical simulation is a method that probes the dynamical behavior predicted by food web models.  ...
