Complex Adaptive Systems and Consumer Research

Complex Adaptive Systems & Consumer Research. Complex adaptive systems in management excited many academics and professionals in the 1990s. However researchers failed to see the potential for analysing the behaviour of consumer groups. This monograph reports on an empirical study to answer the question Can concepts from complex adaptive systems and conversation analysis be used to research consumer behaviour . A research methodology to test the relevance and appropriateness of two very different theories was the major undertaking of this study. The problem of combining an essentially scientific perspective (CAS) with an essentially qualitative one (conversation analysis) was resolved as part of the research process. A field investigation of small consumers groups, analysed as a CAS, and using conversation analysis, demonstrated that CAS can be researched in the field. From today s perspective, this was a pioneering study using a mixed methods methodology. The study of discourse is a major academic discipline and the behaviour of potential consumer groups, such as those generated by Facebook and Twitter, offer a challenge for research using CAS theory

Studies in Europragmatics
27,74 € *

While European languages have been quite frequently studied with respect to cultural-historical, sociopolitical and word-form-oriented issues, the study by Joachim Grzega is the first monograph that deals intensively with the search for commonalities of European languages with respect to the use of word-forms, i.e. pragmalinguistic aspects. The book addresses basic general definitory questions (e.g. what is “European”, what is “Eurolinguistic”?), it discusses and creates methodological approaches of qualitative and quantitative research, it compares working with naturally gathered (spoken and written) language data (e.g. Wikipedia, EU minutes, Facebook) and working with language data artificially elicited by questionnaires, and it makes suggestions on how the results of analyses on speech-acts, address terms, word-connotations and other communicative patterns could be interpreted. Grzega’s volume includes numerous case studies related to synchronic, historical and applied europragmatics, transferring results into numerous figures (among them the map of the flight of the Europragmatic bumblebee, showing the distribution of 36 Europragmatic features).400

The goal of this corpus based research monograph is twofold. On the one hand, the volume delivers a practice relevant theoretical framework which will enable linguists and internationally operating businesses to evaluate product and service comments of foreign customers written in their mother tongue and intended for their fellow nationals. The theoretical framework should be applicable to any language combination. On the other hand, a large-scale empiric study has been carried out building on our theoretical premises with the aim of determining the text linguistic structure and language use in Spanish, Dutch, French and German customer comments on hotel accommodation in two relevant applications of the Social Web (social network services like Facebook and comments on the webs of hotel reservations agencies). Our findings will enable Spanish and German companies to interpret the linguistic behavior of their German/Spanish clients sharing their accommodation experiences on the Social Web.

Python for Graph and Network Analysis
117,66 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This research monograph provides the means to learn the theory and practice of graph and network analysis using the Python programming language. The social network analysis techniques, included, will help readers to efficiently analyze social data from Twitter, Facebook, LiveJournal, GitHub and many others at three levels of depth: ego, group, and community. They will be able to analyse militant and revolutionary networks and candidate networks during elections. For instance, they will learn how the Ebola virus spread through communities.Practically, the book is suitable for courses on social network analysis in all disciplines that use social methodology. In the study of social networks, social network analysis makes an interesting interdisciplinary research area, where computer scientists and sociologists bring their competence to a level that will enable them to meet the challenges of this fast-developing field. Computer scientists have the knowledge to parse and process data while sociologists have the experience that is required for efficient data editing and interpretation. Social network analysis has successfully been applied in different fields such as health, cyber security, business, animal social networks, information retrieval, and communications.

Crowdsourced Data Management
208,00 CHF *

Crowdsourcing and human computation enable organizations to accomplish tasks that are currently not possible for fully automated techniques to complete, or require more flexibility and scalability than traditional employment relationships can facilitate. In the area of data processing, companies have benefited from crowd workers on platforms such as Amazon's Mechanical Turk or Upwork to complete tasks as varied as content moderation, web content extraction, entity resolution, and video/audio/image processing. Several academic researchers from diverse areas, ranging from the social sciences to computer science, have embraced crowdsourcing as a research area, resulting in algorithms and systems that improve crowd work quality, latency, and cost. Despite the relative nascence of the field, the academic and the practitioner communities have largely operated independently of each other for the past decade, rarely exchanging techniques and experiences. Crowdsourced Data Management: Industry and Academic Perspectives aims to narrow the gap between academics and practitioners. On the academic side, it summarizes the state of the art in crowd-powered algorithms and system design tailored to large-scale data processing. On the industry side, it surveys 13 industry users - such as Google, Facebook, and Microsoft - and four marketplace providers of crowd work - such as CrowdFlower and Upwork - to identify how hundreds of engineers and tens of million dollars are invested in various crowdsourcing solutions. Crowdsourced Data Management: Industry and Academic Perspectives simultaneously introduces academics to real problems that practitioners encounter every day, and provides a survey of the state of the art for practitioners to incorporate into their designs. Through the surveys, it also highlights the fact that crowdpowered data processing is a large and growing field. Over the next decade, most technical organizations are likely to benefit in some way from crowd work, and this monograph can help guide the effective adoption of crowdsourcing across these organizations.
