Congratulations to Dr. Xu Yuan for receiving the prestigious NSF CAREER Award. As part of this award, Dr. Yuan received $500K to support his research on social networks. Social networks’ reach makes them a tempting target for malicious users to post spam messages intended to pollute social environments, deceive normal users, or sway political opinions. The increasing amount of malicious content has resulted in growing economic loss and adverse social impacts. This project aims to mitigate malicious online behavior by modeling it through a dynamic malicious knowledge graph. Inspired by human learning processes, the graph will gradually accumulate knowledge, becoming over time a powerful tool for analyzing and mitigating online misbehavior.
