Hashtags like #covid19 and #coronavirus help us stay up to date on the developments of the new coronavirus pandemic. But beyond breaking news, tweets also offer a glimpse into the emotional side of the COVID-19 crisis.
Recently, we have several papers published on addressing the problems of Attributed Network Embedding, Recommendation Systems, and Graph Alignment. Congratulations to Uchenna, Basmah, Lu, Shichao, Yujun, and Zaiqiao (Ph.D. students and visiting Ph.D. students), as well as others who contributed to all these papers.
Xiangliang Zhang, KAUST associate professor of computer science and principal investigator of the Machine Intelligence & Knowledge Engineering Lab, joined the Computational Bioscience Research Center (CBRC) on July 1, 2018. In CBRC, Xiangliang will work on the problems of modeling biological networks using machine learning models.
A paper entitled "Dynamic Embeddings for User Profiling in Twitter" (Shangsong as the first author) and another paper entitled "Multi-label Learning with Highly Incomplete Data via Collaborative Embedding" (Guolei co-authored) have been accepted by KDD 2018 for long presentation.
