  • One last thing from Deindividuation Effects on Group Polarization in Computer-Mediated Communication: The Role of Group Identification, Public-Self-Awareness, and Perceived Argument Quality. This is from the opening paragraph:
    • Group polarization refers to the well-established finding that following group discussion, individuals tend to endorse a more extreme position in the direction already favored by the group (Hogg, Turner, & Davidson, 1990; Isenberg, 1986; Moscovici & Zavalloni, 1969).
      • So this may require some expounding on, but it isn’t something that’s in dispute. Merging GPT with information network analytics in a way to simultaneously determine group membership while nudging for a view of a larger information horizon will require more scaffolding. But this plank is pretty solid.
      • And I like that my bibliography spans over 40 years and multiple disciplines.
  • I think I was able to put in a slot for the development of the slider functionality as it relates to a particular corpus. On a related note vector space classification is becoming a thing in NLP. In Deep or Shallow, NLP is Breaking Out in CACM, both Word2vec and GloVe are discussed. This ties back to The Hybrid Representation Model for Web Document Classification that I read back in January, where documents can be represented as clusters of vectors in an n-dimensional space. But now it looks like there are libraries. Woohoo! I do wonder if there’s a vector space analogy to chunking in this that could be useful. Maybe? Probably?
  • Starting The ‘like me’ framework for recognizing and becoming an intentional agent
    • Page 1: Autism has been described as a kind of ‘mind-blindness’ (Baron-Cohen, 1995) because children with autism do not conceptualize other people as psychological agents with a rich palette of mental states.
      • . What’s the influence on System Trust and Social Trust? Do groups of Autistic people polarize? Differently?

  • Ok, after much flailing, I got the creation of queries correct for arbitrary PersonOfInterest. The problem is that beyond name and State, I really don’t know wht’s going to be used for a source file. So PoiObject has been generalized to handle name and state by default but everything else is optional. What was causing me all the trouble was having license_no as a ‘native’ value with a default of zero. When I made rules based on the presence or absence of this field, they couldn’t work. So much cleanup ensued…
  • Need to test the new data
    • Internal Exception: com.mysql.jdbc.MysqlDataTruncation: Data truncation: Data too long for column ‘source_url’ at row 1 – Fixed
      • Drop ‘queries’ out of provider menu dialog – Fixed
  • Need to change the queries in PoiObject that depended on licence_no. Commented out for now. Fixed.
  • Discussed geolocation with Aaron and sent out a note to the curation team for comments.
