We are conducting an exciting project on building tools for managing personal social networks. You have a lot of friends, communicating with you in a few online social networks, such as Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter, as well as some traditional channels, such as emails, phone calls, and online messages. How to manage your contacts in a social network way?
This personal social network management project will construct tools to collect and organize communication details, analyze and recommend actions, and protect privacy. While the details of the specific Globalink project will be further determined by the supervisor and the student, we expect that the student can finish a small but concrete component during the internship. Some topics for example include entity ambiguity detection and removal, integration and aggregation of communication, visualization of communication and social networks.
The student will work under the supervision of Dr. Jian Pei and a Ph.D. student (as the mentor) to understand the global picture of the project, and contribute a concrete component to the tool set under development. The student is expected to develop the algorithmic framework, very likely involving data mining and machine learning research, and implement a prototype.
