Large graphs arise in a number of contexts and understanding their structure and extracting information from them is an important research area. Early algorithms on mining communities have focused on the global structure, and often run in time functional to the size of the entire graph. Nowadays, as we often explore networks with billions of vertices and(More)
Recent successes in training large, deep neural networks (DNNs) have prompted active investigation into the underlying representations learned on their intermediate layers. Such research is difficult because it requires making sense of non-linear computations performed by millions of learned parameters. However, despite the difficulty, such research is(More)
Machine learning is increasingly used in high impact applications such as prediction of hospital re-admission, cancer screening or bio-medical research applications. As predictions become increasingly accurate, practitioners may be interested in identifying actionable changes to inputs in order to alter their class membership. For example, a doctor might(More)
In this paper, we investigate the multicast capacity for static ad hoc networks with heterogeneous clusters. We study the effect of heterogeneous cluster traffic (HCT) on the achievable capacity. HCT means cluster clients are more likely to appear near the cluster head instead of being uniformly distributed across the network. Such a property is commonly(More)
Social instant messaging services are emerging as a transformative form with which people connect, communicate with friends in their daily life — they catalyze the formation of social groups, and they bring people stronger sense of community and connection. However , research community still knows little about the formation and evolution of groups in the(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, non-coding RNAs that negatively regulate gene expression. It has been reported that miRNAs are involved in host-virus interaction, but evidence that cellular miRNAs promote virus replication has been limited. Here, we found that miR-23a promoted the replication of human herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) in HeLa cells, as(More)
Based on the definition of local spectral subspace, we propose a novel approach called LOSP for local overlapping community detection. Using the power method for a few steps, LOSP finds an approximate invariant subspace, which depicts the embedding of the local neighborhood structure around the seeds of interest. LOSP then identifies the local community(More)
How can web services that depend on user generated content discern fake social engagement activities by spammers from legitimate ones? In this paper, we focus on the social site of YouTube and the problem of identifying bad actors posting inorganic contents and inflating the count of social engagement metrics. We propose an effective method, Leas (Local(More)
Colloidal particles embedded in the cytoplasm of living mammalian cells have been found to display remarkable heterogeneity in their amplitude of motion. However, consensus on the significance and origin of this phenomenon is still lacking. We conducted experiments on Hmec-1 cells loaded with about 100 particles to reveal the intracellular particle dynamics(More)
