On the Extraction and Analysis of a Social Network With Partial Organizational Observation
The behavior of an organization may be inferred based on the behavior of its members, their contacts, and their connectivity. One approach to organizational analysis is the construction and interpretation of a social network graph, where entities of an organization (persons, vehicles, locations, events, etc.) are nodes, and edges represent varying kinds of connectivity between entities. This paper describes a transformation based approach to the extraction of a social network graph, where the original data comprising (partial) observation of the organization are embedded on a graph with a different ontology, and with many entities and edges that are unrelated to the organization of interest.
