Diffusion of innovation: a model of evolutionary processes


  • Bukin, Kirill

    () (NRU HSE)


The present study is the diffusion of innovation. The purpose of research - to build a model of innovative processes in the space of attributes or characteristics of the products. It analyzes the main problems of the diffusion of innovation, as well as different approaches to the modeling of diffusion processes, including changes in the quality of innovative products and technologies. We propose an original model of diffusion of innovations in the space of properties, allowing to analyze possible changes in the properties of innovative products and identify ways to predict the appearance of products with fundamentally new properties.
