Preji krasny den,

rada bych Vas pozvala na prednasku Petr Matous (Japonsko) na tema
"Communication networks and new technologies in the developing world".

Prednaska se uskutecni v pondeli 30. dubna  v ramci cyklu Jinonicke
informacni pondelky a probehne v prostorach UISK FF UK v Jinonicich
(ul. U Krize 8) od 14.00 v mistnosti c. 2015. Delka trvani 1,5 hod.


In the first part of the talk, Dr.Matous will overview his research on
social network capital and infrastructure development in informal
urban settlements of the third world. Social capital is crucial for
slum dwellers but there is a lack of consensus on how it can be
measured. This presentation will describe how using the network
concept, scales for social capital measurement were developed and
applied in a Philippine slum and how these measures relate to
squatters access to basic needs such as potable water or electricity.

In the next part of the lecture, the introduced social capital
measurement tools will be further extended to a case study of mobile
phone communication and social networks among members of a mountainous
tribe in south India.

Finally, Dr.Matous will describe his current research on diffusion of
technologies in Africa. His colleagues and he have been conducting
annual social network surveys of hundreds of farmers in rural
Ethiopia. They distributed mobile phones to half of the observed
farmers and collected their geo-coded communication data. This
randomized-controlled trial is expected to elucidate causal
relationships between diffusion of new technologies and evolution of
communication networks in the developing world.
