  • BIA References

  • Behavior is an important analysis object in
  • Business intelligence
  • Customer relationship management
  • Social computing
  • Intrusion detection
  • Fraud detection
  • Event analysis
  • Market strategy design
  • Group decision-making, etc.

  • Examples
  • Customer behavior analysis
  • Consumer behavior and market strategy
  • Web usage and user preference analysis
  • Exceptional behavior analysis of terrorist and
  • Trading pattern analysis of investors in capital

  • Traditional analysis on behavior
  • Behavior-oriented analysis was usually conducted
    on customer demographic and transactional data
  • Telecom churn analysis, customer demographic data
    and service usage data are analyzed to classify
    customers into loyal and non-loyal groups based
    on the dynamics of usage change
  • outlier mining of trading behavior, price
    movement is usually focused to detect abnormal

so-called behavior-oriented analysis is actually
not on customer behavior-oriented elements,
rather on straightforward customer demographic
data and business usage related appearance data
  • Market price trend/movement estimation

  • Problems with traditional behavior analysis
  • customer demographic and transactional data is
    not organized in terms of behavior but entity
  • human behavior is implicit in normal
    transactional data behavior implication
  • cannot support in-depth analysis on behavior
    interior behavior exterior
  • Cannot scrutinize behavioral intention and impact
    on business appearance and problems

Such behavior implication indicates the
limitation or even ineffectiveness of supporting
behavior-oriented analysis on transactional data
  • behavior can make difference
  • behavior plays the role as internal driving
    forces or causes for business appearance and
  • complement traditional pattern analysis solely
    relying on demographic and transactional data
  • Disclose extra information and relationship
    between behavior and target business

A multiple-dimensional viewpoint and solution may
exist that can uncover problem-solving evidence
from not only demographic and transactional but
behavioral (including intentional, social and
impact aspects) perspectives
  • support genuine behavior analysis
  • make behavior explicit by squeezing out
    behavior elements hidden in transactional data
  • a conversion from transactional space to behavior
    feature space is necessary
  • behavior data
  • behavior modeling and mapping
  • organized in terms of behavior, behavior
    relationship and impact

Explicitly and more effectively analyze behavior
patterns and behavior impacts than on
transactional data
  • main goals and tasks of behavior informatics and
    analytics (BIA)
  • behavioral data construction
  • behavior modeling and representation,
  • behavior impact modeling,
  • Behavior pattern analysis, and
  • behavior presentation

BIA is mainly from the perspectives of
information technology and data analysis rather
than from social behavior aspect
  • BIA makes difference
  • Case study churn analysis of mobile customers
  • analysis on demographic and service usage data
  • behavior sequences of a customer
  • activities happened from his/her registration and
    activation of a new account into a network
  • Characteristics of making payments to the date
    leaving the network
  • Know deep knowledge about mobile service
    retainers intention, activity change, usage
    dynamics, and payment profile
  • disclosing reasons and drivers of churners and
    their loyalty change

So, what is behavior
  • Under the scope of Behavior Informatics and
    Analytics, behavior refers to those activities
    that present as actions, operations or events,
    and activity sequences conducted by human beings
    under certain context and environment, as well as
    behavior surroundings.
  • the informatics and analytics for symbolic
    behavior and the analytics of mapped behavior.
  • symbolic behavior
  • Those social activities recorded into computer
    systems, which present as symbols representing
    human interaction and operation with a particular
    object or object system
  • place an order
  • game user behavior
  • intelligent agent behavior

  • mapped behavior
  • direct or indirect mapping of physical behavior
    in a virtual world.
  • Those physical activities recorded by sensors
    into computer systems,
  • human activities captured by video surveillance
  • robots behavior
  • organisms behavior in game systems

  • An Abstract Behavioral Model
  • Behavior attributes and properties
  • Subject (s) The entity (or entities) that issues
    the activity or activity sequence
  • Object (o) The entity (or entities) on which a
    behavior is imposed on
  • Context (e) The environment
  • Goal (g) Goal represents the objectives
  • Belief (b) Belief represents the informational
    state and knowledge
  • Action (a) Action represents what the behavior
    subject has chosen to do or operate
  • Plan (l) Plans are sequences of actions
  • Impact (f) The results led by the execution of a
    behavior on its object or context
  • Constraint (c) Constraint represents what
    conditions are taken on the behavior constraints
    are instantiated into specific factors in a
  • Time (t) When the behavior occurs
  • Place (w) Where the behavior happens
  • Status (u) The stage where a behavior is
    currently located
  • Associate (m) Other behavior instances or
    sequences of actions that are associated with the
    target one

  • An abstract behavior model
  • Demographics of behavioral subjects and objects
  • Associates of a behavior may form into certain
    behavior sequences or network
  • Social behavioral network consists of sequences
    of behaviors that are organized in terms of
    certain social relationships or norms.

  • behavior instance behavior vector
  • basic properties
  • social and organizational factors
  • vector-based behavior sequences,
  • vector-oriented patterns.

  • vector-oriented behavior pattern analysis is much
    more comprehensive
  • Behavior performer
  • Subject (s), action (a), time (t), place (w)
  • Social information
  • Object (o), context (e), constraints (c),
    associations (m)
  • Intentional information
  • Subjects goal (g), belief (b), plan (l)
  • Behavior performance
  • Impact (f), status (u)
  • New methods for vector-based behavior pattern

The concept of BIA
  • BIA aims to develop methodologies, techniques and
    practical tools for
  • representing, modeling, analyzing, understanding
  • utilizing symbolic and/or mapped behavior,
  • behavioral interaction and network, behavioral
  • behavioral impacts,
  • the formation of behavior-oriented groups and
    collective intelligence, and
  • behavioral intelligence emergence.
