Belief bifurcation in an increasingly interconnected world?
The recent history of globalization suggests that an increasing interconnection between countries brought about by technological progress, though produced tremendous benefits to the world economy on average, engenders vastly different views and attitudes among different population groups. This divergence of opinions can significantly affect not only domestic politics, but also international cooperations.
In a world where individual verification of the true state of nature is prohibitively costly, a naturally rational belief-updating-rule would be that the individual uses the weighted average of his/her own signal and those of his/her neighbour’s to form the belief. So this social learning rule would include the average of the neighbour’s opinions. In a highly and quite evenly interconnected population with such social learning rule, posterior beliefs in the population tend to converge, contrary to what have been observed. By retaining the assumption that belief updating is the rule above, this paper puts forward a hypothesis that sufficient degree of homophile in choosing interconnection could in principle generate bifurcation in posterior beliefs as homophile disproportionally favours in-group connectivity. As these posterior beliefs may not reflect the true state of nature, actions taken based on these beliefs may result in inferior welfare.

Research Paradigm Based on Big Data: Taking Marketing and Management Information Research as an Example
Big Data analysis is key to the specific operations of data science and artificial intelligence. It covers a wide range of fields, including probability statistics, optimization and operations research, machine learning, deep learning, etc. It is one of the necessary technologies for future academic research and collaboration between industry and academia. Data analysis technology is a means and method for analyzing and processing Big Data. As an important information carrier, Big Data now plays an important role in the information society. By studying the core fundamentals of information retrieval, information transmission, information processing, and information control, you will master the mathematical theories and methods to efficiently solve scientific and engineering problems using modern computer tools. Drawing on the latest research in management systems and marketing, I will introduce and discuss the value and paradigm of Big Data in medical research and the problems of manuscript review.
