Online Social Networks: Modeling and Mining

Online Social Networks: Modeling and Mining

This video was recorded at The 6th Workshop on Algorithms and Models for the Web Graph (WAW2009). Online social networks have become major and driving phenomena on the web. In this talk we will address key modeling and algorithmic questions related to large online social networks. From the modeling perspective, we raise the question of whether there is a generative model for network evolution. The availability of time-stamped data makes it possible to study this question at an extremely fine granularity. We exhibit a simple, natural model that leads to synthetic networks with properties similar to the online ones. From an algorithmic viewpoint, we focus on data mining challenges posed by the magnitude of data in these networks. In particular, we examine topics related to influence and... Show More
