*Data Seminar *
*Applications of Mining Heterogeneous Information Networks*
*Yizhou Sun, Northeastern University*
*Tuesday**, October 20, 2015 at 11am in MCS 148*

*Abstract:* Most real-world applications that handle big data, including
interconnected social media and social networks, scientific, engineering,
or medical information systems, online e-commerce systems, and most
database systems, can be structured into heterogeneous information
networks. Different from homogeneous information networks, where objects
and links are treated either as of the same type or as of untyped nodes or
links, heterogeneous information networks in our model are semi-structured
and typed, following a network schema. Recent studies have demonstrated the
power of heterogeneous information networks in many real-world
applications. In this talk, I will introduce some of these interesting
studies, which include (1) recommendation and (2) information diffusion.

*Bio: *Yizhou Sun is an assistant professor in the College of Computer and
Information Science of Northeastern University. She received her Ph.D. in
Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in
2012. Her principal research interest is in mining information and social
networks, and more generally in data mining, machine learning, and network
science, with a focus on modeling novel problems and proposing scalable
algorithms for large-scale, real-world applications. Yizhou has over 60
publications in books, journals, and major conferences. Tutorials based on
her thesis work on mining heterogeneous information networks have been
given in several premier conferences, including EDBT 2009, SIGMOD 2010, KDD
2010, ICDE 2012, VLDB 2012, and ASONAM 2012. She received 2012 ACM SIGKDD
Best Student Paper Award, 2013 ACM SIGKDD Doctoral Dissertation Award, 2013
Yahoo ACE (Academic Career Enhancement) Award, and 2015 NSF CAREER Award.
