Topic ：On Application-Aware Information Extraction for Big Data in Social Networks
Due to the paradigm shift to the Cloud computing, data has been accumulated at fast pace in various applications. Among others, the number of social network activities is increasing drastically. It has become very desirable to conduct various analyses for applications on social networks. However, as the scale of a social network has become prohibitively large, it is infeasible to scrutinize the data and extract the key essence from the entire social network. This issue becomes further complicated due to the heterogeneous nature of the data. As a result, a significant amount of research effort has been elaborated upon extracting the essential application-dependent information from a social network. In this talk, we shall examine some recent studies on data processing and information extraction for social networks. Explicitly, we shall explore the methods for three levels of information extraction in a social network, namely, parameter extraction, information extraction, and structure extraction, and interpret them from their respective objectives. We then comment on how to conduct application-aware information extraction for big data in social networks.
