A predictive spatio-temporal query retrieves the set of moving objects that will intersect a query window during a future time interval. Currently, the only access method for processing such queries in practice is the TPR-tree. In this paper we first perform an analysis to determine the factors that affect the performance of predictive queries and show that(More)
Modern applications such as Internet traffic, telecommunication records, and large-scale social networks generate massive amounts of data with multiple aspects and high dimensionalities. Tensors (i.e., multi-way arrays) provide a natural representation for such data. Consequently, tensor decompositions such as Tucker become important tools for summarization(More)
In large social networks, nodes (users, entities) are influenced by others for various reasons. For example, the colleagues have strong influence on one's work, while the friends have strong influence on one's daily life. How to differentiate the social influences from different angles(topics)? How to quantify the strength of those social influences? How to(More)
How can we find communities in dynamic networks of socialinteractions, such as who calls whom, who emails whom, or who sells to whom? How can we spot discontinuity time-points in such streams of graphs, in an on-line, any-time fashion? We propose GraphScope, that addresses both problems, using information theoretic principles. Contrary to the majority of(More)
In this paper, we introduce SPIRIT (Streaming Pattern dIscoveRy in multIple Timeseries). Given n numerical data streams, all of whose values we observe at each time tick t, SPIRIT can incrementally find correlations and hidden variables, which summarise the key trends in the entire stream collection. It can do this quickly, with no buffering of stream(More)
How do we find patterns in author-keyword associations, evolving over time? Or in Data Cubes, with product-branch-customer sales information? Matrix decompositions, like principal component analysis (PCA) and variants, are invaluable tools for mining, dimensionality reduction, feature selection, rule identification in numerous settings like streaming data,(More)
This paper aims at discovering community structure in rich media social networks, through analysis of time-varying, multi-relational data. Community structure represents the <i>latent</i> social context of user actions. It has important applications in information tasks such as search and recommendation. Social media has several unique challenges. (a) In(More)
Many real applications can be modeled using bipartite graphs, such as users vs. files in a P2P system, traders vs. stocks in a financial trading system, conferences vs. authors in a scientific publication network, and so on. We introduce two operations on bipartite graphs: 1) identifying similar nodes (Neighborhood formation), and 2) finding abnormal nodes(More)
Accurately capturing user preferences over time is a great practical challenge in recommender systems. Simple correlation over time is typically not meaningful, since users change their preferences due to different external events. User behavior can often be determined by individual's long-term and short-term preferences. How to represent users' long-term(More)
Graphs appear in numerous applications including cyber-security, the Internet, social networks, protein networks, recommendation systems, and many more. Graphs with millions or even billions of nodes and edges are common-place. How to store such large graphs efficiently? What are the core operations/queries on those graph? How to answer the graph queries(More)
