  • Publication number: 20160218931
    Abstract: In the inter-element influence determination apparatus, a receiver receives request information from a user terminal. A system information storage device stores system information containing attribute information indicating attributes of each element in a system. A relationship information storage device stores relationship information indicating relationships in which direct interaction is provided between elements. On the basis of the attribute information and the relationship information, an influence determiner virtually connects each element included in the system, thereby creating a system network model which models the system, and on the basis of the system network model, determines whether a second element is influenced when a change is made to a first element. A transmitter transmits to the user terminal determination result information indicating the result of the determination by the influence determiner.

  • Patent number: 9241037
    Abstract: A behavior information acquirer (11) acquires behavior information representing the behavior of a user detected by a behavior detector (21), and stores the behavior information in a behavior information memory (12). How the influence of the behavior of the user indicated by the behavior information acquired by the behavior information acquirer (11) will spread over a network of mutual information is calculated from mutual information, user information, and a behavior list respectively stored in a mutual information memory (13), a user information memory (14), and a behavior information memory (12). A presentation information generator (16) generates presentation information depicting the way in which the influence of the behavior of the user indicated by the behavior information acquired by the behavior information acquirer (11) propagates to other users, and transmits the presentation information to a terminal device (2B).
