CIS Colloquium, Apr 16, 2013, 11:00AM - 12:00PM, Wachman 1015D
Machine Learning with Big Linked Data
Jun (Luke) Huan, University of Kansas
Graphs are widely used modeling tools that capture objects and their relation (links). Graph modeled data are found in diverse application areas including bioinformatics, cheminformatics, social networks, wireless sensor networks among many others. In this talk we will present our recent work on graph kernel functions and graph similarity search in the context of big data, focusing on scalable algorithmic approaches for graph data. Applications of graph modeling techniques in drug discovery and social network analysis will be touched at the end.
Dr. Jun (Luke) Huan is an associate professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department at the University of Kansas.
