Peter Gloor - Crystallball - Towards Understanding the Emergence of New Ideas

This talk describes a series of ongoing projects with the goal of analyzing the new idea creation process through tracking human interaction patterns on three levels:

On the global level, macro- and microeconomic indicators such as the valuation of companies and consumer indices are predicted based on social media analysis on Twitter, Blogs, and Wikipedia. On the organizational level, productivity and creativity of companies and teams is measured through extracting “honest signals” from communication archives such as company e-mail.

On the individual level, individual and team creativity is analyzed through face-to-face interaction with sociometric badges and personal e-mail logs.After introducing the framework, the talk will present ongoing projects on all three levels as well as Crystalball, a total rewrite of Condor, a tool  for dynamic semantic social network analysis co-developed by the presenter over the last ten years.
