Book Objectives

Social networks provide a powerful abstraction of the structure and
dynamics of diverse kinds of people or people-to-technology
interaction. Web 2.0 has enabled a new generation of Web-based
communities, social networks, and folksonomies to facilitate
collaboration among different communities. Social network analysis is
a rapidly growing field within the Web intelligence domain. The recent
developments in Web 2.0 have provided more opportunities to
investigate the dynamics and structure of Web-based social networks.
Recent trends also indicate the usage of social networks as a key
feature for next generation usage and exploitation of the Web.   This
book  provides an opportunity to compare and contrast the ethological
approach to social behavior in animals (including the study of animal
tracks and learning by members of the same species) with web-based
evidence of social interaction, perceptual learning, information
granulation, the behavior of humans and affinities between web-based
social networks.  The main topics cover the design and use of various
computational intelligence tools and software, simulations of social
networks, representation and analysis of social networks, use of
semantic networks in the design and community-based research issues
such as knowledge discovery, privacy and protection, and
visualization. In this book, we aim at gathering the latest advances
of various topics in intelligence social networks and reporting how
organizations can gain competitive advantages by applying the
different emergent techniques in the real-world scenarios. Chapters
and studies which couple the intelligence techniques and theories with
specific networks technology problems are cordially invited. Survey
articles that emphasize the research and application of intelligence
social networks in a particular domain are greatly welcome.The primary
target audience for the book includes researchers, scholars,
postgraduate students and developers who are interested in
intelligence social networks research and related issues. The book
will provide reviews of the cutting–edge technologies and insights for
SN-based systems. In particular, the book will be valuable companion
and comprehensive reference for both postgraduate and senior
undergraduate students who are taking a course in Social Intelligence.
The book will be organized in self-contained chapters to provide
greatest reading flexibility.
