[01358] Compartment Models for Ideas on Social Media Networks

  • Session Time & Room : 3E (Aug.23, 17:40-19:20) @D505
  • Type : Contributed Talk
  • Abstract : The concept of virality and the structure of social media networks lend themselves to the use of SIR-like compartment models to study the spread of ideas between users on these platforms. This talk introduces the USBA - Unexposed, Sending, Bored, and Acclimated - family of discrete compartment models as a means of simulating how ideas reach and affect users and change the network structure, leading to the formation of echo chambers and polarization in sentiment.
