CS Seminar |Trust Computing in Online Social Networks

Start Date: November 30, 2015
End Date: November 30, 2015

By Professor Guanfeng Liu (School of Computer Science and Technology in Soochow University )

Online Social Networks (OSNs) have already gained popularity and attracted lots of participants. In recent years, social networking sites have been used as a means for a rich variety of activities, such as movie recommendations and product recommendations. In these activities, trust is one of the most important factors for participants' decision-making. Therefore, it is necessary and significant to evaluate the trust between two participants who have no direct interaction. My work aims to provide effective and efficient trust evaluation methods to compute more reasonable trust evaluation results.
