报告摘要:Social media has become an emerging platform for organizations to broadcast their policies, for companies to advertise their products, and for people to propagate their opinions. In the social media data analytics, one of the most significant problems is the influence maximization problem. Given a social network and a campaign budget, the goal of influence maximization problem is to identify a set of influential users that are most likely to influence the maximum number of users in the social network. Meanwhile, the selected user set size is limited to the specified campaign budget. Thus, the small set of selected users can help campaign organizers to improve their marketing, branding, and product adoption in a profitable way.
At this seminar, Jianxin will first introduce some background knowledge about social influence and the traditional influence maximization problem, and then briefly overview his recent research on the problem from different perspectives – topic-aware, location-aware, community-aware and target-aware, published in TKDE’16, WWW’17, TKDE’17, ICDE’17, and ICDE’18 and PAKDD’18. After that, he will mainly present his latest research – target-aware holistic influence maximization work that was published in ICDE’18. At this part, Jianxin will explain the motivation of the novel problem, its new insights, the procedure of defining the problem in an easy way, the optimization techniques in solving the problem, and the experimental evaluations.

The main goal in presenting this seminar is to help audiences to know and understand the different applications of social influence in need, how the influence models are devised, the existing research challenges and one state-of-the-art work in this topic. This presentation is suitable to a broad audience who have interest in data science.
