Abstract

This paper aims to understand some of the mechanisms which dominate the phenomenon of knowledge diffusion in the process that is called ‘interactive learning’. We examine how knowledge spreads in a network in which agents interact by word of mouth. We define a social network structured as a graph consisting of agents (vertices) and connections (edges) and situated on a wrapped grid forming a torus. The target of this simulation is to test whether knowledge diffuses homogeneously or whether it follows some biased path, and its relation with the network architecture. We also investigate the impact of a modelled ICT platform on the knowledge diffusion process.
