Grassroots participation vs. dictated partnership: Anatomy of the Turkish risk management reality



Local decision making and decision fusion in hierarchical levels
BELDEK, ULAŞ; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2009-07-01)
Hierarchical problem solving is preferred when the problem is overwhelmingly complicated. In such a case, the problem should better be analyzed in hierarchical levels. At each level, some temporary solutions are obtained; then a suitable decision fusion technique is used to merge the temporary solutions for the next level. The hierarchical framework proposed in this study depends on reutilization or elimination of previous level local agents that together perform the decisions due to a decision-fusion techn...
Crowd participation in web-based collective design platforms: a study on quirky’s in-house industrial designers
Hajiamiri, Milad; Korkut, Fatma; Department of Industrial Design (2014)
Web-based collective design platforms are the newly emerging environments which globally support the contribution of vast number of individuals with diverse backgrounds. This study investigates the role of in-house industrial designers working for web-based collective design platforms in connection with the crowd participation in different phases of design process. The first study conducted focuses on the perceived values of web-based collective design platforms and covers semi-structured interviews with no...
Collective efficacy: new motivational construct to improve science teaching efficacy beliefs
Atasoy, Volkan; Çakıroğlu, Jale (null; 2018-06-15)
Problem Durumu: Collective efficacy has been an important motivational factor influencing group work (Bandura, 1997). This construct was formulated by Bandura’s social cognitive theory (1986) which noted that interaction with other people caused the formation of group belief regarding collective action they conducted. Bandura (1997) also argued that there were four sources to enhance collective efficacy in the groups. The sources are mastery experience, vicarious experience, verbal experience, and psych...
Collective action and group attachment: interplay of free-riding behaviour and patriotism
Kışlıoğlu, Reşit; Öner Özkan, Bengi; Department of Psychology (2010)
Conflict between self-interest and group-interest constitute a challenge for the individuals and the groups. The conflict should be resolved for a healthy maintenance of collective action; otherwise the free-rider problem is a likely result. This thesis is about the individual motivation loss -psychological aspect of free-rider problem- and its relation to group attachment –patriotism-. Free-riding is proposed to be related to patriotism; and guilt, shame and pride emotions. Experimental manipulations inclu...

Crowd analysis related tasks have a wide range of real-life applications such as mass surveillance, safety monitoring, disaster management, traffic control and public area design. There are different novel works on crowd counting, localization and abnormal event detection tasks in the computer vision literature. In this study, we propose a ConvLSTM based Convolutional Neural Network to solve these three problems together in a single network. Our proposed model is a combination of P2P-Net architecture, whic...
