Elevating Creative Performances in Self-organizing Social Networks
We designed empirical experiments to investigate the socio-cognitive-psychological-network mechanisms behind people’s creative idea-generation performances in self-organizing social networks
We captured the empirical insights in agent-based simulation models, game-theoretic models, and statistical models
We developed intelligent peer recommendation systems that seek to enhance people’s creative idea-generation performances
