Ziv Epstein, Matthew Groh, Abhimanyu Dubey, Alex "Sandy" Pentland
2021 arXiv   pre-print
However, we also find that social influence can lead to the emergence of local cultural trends that diverge from the status quo and are ultimately more diverse.  ...  We successfully replicate the Music Lab's findings in the context of images, whereby social influence leads to an unpredictable winner-take-all market.  ...  While social influence can lead to a "winner take all" market where smaller actors suffer, it can also lead to the rapid evolution of unexplored, diverse trends.  ...

Finding a Wise Group of Experts in Social Networks [chapter]

Hongzhi Yin, Bin Cui, Yuxin Huang
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
To quantify the diversity of a group of experts, we propose one metric based on the social influence incurred by the subgraph in G that only involves χ .  ...  To the best of our knowledge, this is the first work to study diversity in the social graph and facilitate its effect in the Expert Group Formation problem.  ...  The above discussion leads to the following desiderata for computing social influence. 1.  ...

Homophily, Cultural Drift, and the Co-Evolution of Cultural Groups

Damon Centola, Juan Carlos González-Avella, Víctor M. Eguíluz, Maxi San Miguel
2007 Journal of Conflict Resolution  
Our results show that in certain regions of the parameter space these co-evolutionary dynamics can lead to patterns of cultural diversity that are stable in the presence of cultural drift.  ...  While these mechanisms normally lead to cultural convergence, increased levels of heterogeneity can allow them to produce global diversity.  ...  The over-abundance of cultural options actually prevents the formation of cultural groups, and thus eliminates the forms of social diversity that heterogeneity was thought to help create.  ...

Global convergence of consumer spending: Conceptualization and propositions

Ayse Ozturk, S. Tamer Cavusgil
2019 International Business Review  
The proposed conceptual framework is comprehensive, offers refinements to the convergence phenomenon, and leads the way for further development of new theories in the international marketing domain.  ...  It is, therefore, incumbent upon international business scholars to reexamine the convergence versus divergence debate in the contemporary world economy.  ...  The differences in the acceptance and application of such laws in a highly diverse country lead to inconsistent effect of the public policies on convergence.  ...

Human opinion dynamics: An inspiration to solve complex optimization problems

Rishemjit Kaur, Ritesh Kumar, Amol P. Bhondekar, Pawan Kapur
2013 Scientific Reports  
Human interactions give rise to the formation of different kinds of opinions in a society. The study of formations and dynamics of opinions has been one of the most important areas in social physics.  ...  The opinion dynamics and associated social structure leads to decision making or so called opinion consensus.  ...  However, for the simplicity of modelling, only local dynamics representing the social influence has been considered in this work.  ...

A Psychologically-Motivated Model of Opinion Change with Applications to American Politics

Peter Duggins
2017 Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation  
This study expands agents' psychological realism using empirically-motivated rules governing interpersonal influence, commitment to previous beliefs, and conformity in social contexts.  ...  Computational experiments establish that these extensions produce three novel results: (a) sustained strong diversity of opinions within the population, (b) opinion subcultures, and (c) pluralistic ignorance  ...  Expanding agents' social networks dilutes the influence of extremist agents over larger network, while globalized influence prevents the formation of opinion subcultures and eventually destroys strong  ...
