Виртуальные расширения человека: новые основы культуры и бизнеса
A hybrid of two novel methods - additive fuzzy spectral clustering and lifting method over a taxonomy - is applied to analyse the research activities of a department. To be specific, we concentrate on the Computer Sciences area represented by the ACM Computing Classification System (ACM-CCS), but the approach is applicable also to other taxonomies. Clusters of the taxonomy subjects are extracted using an original additive spectral clustering method involving a number of model-based stopping conditions. The clusters are parsimoniously lifted then to higher ranks of the taxonomy by minimizing the count of “head subjects” along with their “gaps” and “offshoots”. An example is given illustrating the method applied to real-world data.
The present article contains amendments to the defi nitions of such notions as e-company, traditional company, virtual company and network company. A classifi cation of modern business models based on two criteria is proposed. A classifi cation of companies (based on the criterion of combination of traditional and electronic business tools) is outlined.
