基於大量政府官員異動資料的可取得性及政治權力社會網路建構與分析的現有基礎，本計畫將朝向細緻化、局部化的模型建構及節點指標/結構分析工具的深度檢驗與開創，具體的計畫目標為：(1)發掘及分析關係緊密之政治權力集團結構及其變化；(2)以對偶或雙邊網路(dyadic network)，探討兩位官員間之權力互動關係；(3)以三元結構網路(triadic network)，探討政府體系中之三角權力互動狀態。本計畫將築基於先前在ego-centric network與complete network層次上的初階研究成果與經驗，探討局部網路(local network)的結構與行為，包括dyads、tryads、cliques等不同大小的局部結構層次，進行更精密的分析與觀察，並對社會網路分析的各種量測與分割工具提出改善方式。這項研究對於資料領域的應用而言，更將為國內政治權力結構的深度解讀，帶來意義重大的客觀實證資訊來源。此研究工作的價值，不僅是在於首次就國內政治權力領域，提供系統性、構面性、客觀性的剖析結果，更對社會網路分析的方法與工具，提供了一個實證、改良與創新的研究分析場域。同時，這項研究也代表著資訊科學領域對人文社會學科議題探討的開展與對話，進而開創出實質而深度的跨領域成果，並發展出政治資訊學的新領域。 Based on accessibility to government personnel data and preliminary results of political power network analysis, the proposed project aims to construct localized and fine-grained network modeling, as well as to develop and verify instruments of node measurement and structure analysis. The specific goals are: (1) discover and analyze cliques of political power, reveal their structures and observe their changes over time; (2) investigate power interactions between two significant officials with dyadic network; (3) study triangular power interactions among government officials with triadic network. The proposed project will build upon previous research experience and results in both ego-centric network and complete network, and focus on local network structure and behavior, such as dyads, triads, and cliques. This empirical investigation will also lead to modification and improvement on various measurements and instruments of social network analysis. Another implication for the application domain is the realization of an objective and verifiable data sources for the interpretation and understanding of domestic political power structure. The research value of the proposed project is two folds: (1) provide analytic results that are systematic, objective, and dimensional for domestic political power domain; (2) construct a new investigation domain for the verification, improvement, and innovation of social network analysis methods. In addition, the proposed project signifies a constructive dialog of research issues between computer science and social sciences. The interdisciplinary research results may help create a new field of political informatics.
