Information Dynamics in the Networked World
Bernardo Huberman, Hewlett Packard Laboratories
The dynamics of information within social organizations is relevant to innovation, productivity, and the sorting out of useful ideas from the general chatter of a community. How information spreads and is aggregated determines the speed with which individuals and organizations can act and plan their future activities.
This talk will describe new mechanisms for automatically identifying communities of practice within organizations and for elucidating the spread of information within those communities. In addition, I'll present new results that show the efficacy of a new mechanism involving groups of people at making predictions in the real world.
