ACE Seminar: Toward Controlling Malicious Users in Online Social Platform

Speaker: Anna Squiccarini

Date/Time: 27-Apr-2017, 13:00 UTC

Venue: Roberts 309



This talk will discuss social science and computational methodologies to build a socio-computational framework that takes an intelligence-driven approach to the problem of users’  online misbehavior. We discuss   models aiming at  modeling influence and dynamics of   both  normal and deviant users   in online  networks – including crowdsourcing sites. We   present results  from our studies,   with  focus on  our online deviance (e.g. cyberbullying)  as well as our work in the domain of malicious behavior in crowdsourcing sites.   We conclude with an outlook at our unsolved research challenges in the space of detection of deviant behavior and oversharing.
