  • Yum-Me: A Personalized Nutrient-Based Meal Recommender System
    • Abstract: Longqi Yang, Cheng-Kang Hsieh, Hongjian Yang, John P. Pollak, Nicola Dell, Serge Belongie, Curtis Cole, Deborah Estrin

      Nutrient-based meal recommendations have the potential to help individuals prevent or manage conditions such as diabetes and obesity. However, learning people’s food preferences and making recommendations that simultaneously appeal to their palate and satisfy nutritional expectations are challenging. Existing approaches either only learn high-level preferences or require a prolonged learning period. We propose Yum-me, a personalized nutrient-based meal recommender system designed to meet individuals’ nutritional expectations, dietary restrictions, and fine-grained food preferences. Yum-me enables a simple and accurate food preference profiling procedure via a visual quiz-based user interface and projects the learned profile into the domain of nutritionally appropriate food options to find ones that will appeal to the user.

  • Search Result Diversification in Short Text Streams
    • Abstract: Shangsong Liang, Emine Yilmaz, Hong Shen, Maarten De Rijke, W. Bruce Croft

      We consider the problem of search result diversification for streams of short texts. Diversifying search results in short text streams is more challenging than in the case of long documents, as it is difficult to capture the latent topics of short documents. To capture the changes of topics and the probabilities of documents for a given query at a specific time in a short text stream, we propose a dynamic Dirichlet multinomial mixture topic model, called D2M3, as well as a Gibbs sampling algorithm for the inference. We also propose a streaming diversification algorithm, SDA, that integrates the information captured by D2M3 with our proposed modified version of the PM-2 (Proportionality-based diversification Method -- second version) diversification algorithm.

  • Learning to Align Comments to News Topics
    • Abstract: Lei Hou, Juanzi Li, Xiao-Li Li, Jie Tang, Xiaofei Guo

      With the rapid proliferation of social media, increasingly more people express their opinions and reviews (user-generated content (UGC)) on recent news articles through various online services, such as news portals, forums, discussion groups, and microblogs. Clearly, identifying hot topics that users greatly care about can improve readers’ news browsing experience and facilitate research into interaction analysis between news and UGC. Furthermore, it is of great benefit to public opinion monitoring and management for both industry and government agencies. However, it is extremely time consuming, if not impossible, to manually examine the large amount of available social content. In this article, we formally define the news comment alignment problem and propose a novel framework that: (1) automatically extracts topics from a given news article and its associated comments, (2) identifies and extends positive examples with different degrees of confidence using three methods (i.e., hypersphere, density, and cluster chain), and (3) completes ...

  • Inferring Dynamic User Interests in Streams of Short Texts for User
    • Abstract: Shangsong Liang, Zhaochun Ren, Yukun Zhao, Jun Ma, Emine Yilmaz, Maarten De Rijke

      User clustering has been studied from different angles. In order to identify shared interests, behavior-based methods consider similar browsing or search patterns of users, whereas content-based methods use information from the contents of the documents visited by the users. So far, content-based user clustering has mostly focused on static sets of relatively long documents. Given the dynamic nature of social media, there is a need to dynamically cluster users in the context of streams of short texts. User clustering in this setting is more challenging than in the case of long documents, as it is difficult to capture the users’ dynamic topic distributions in sparse data settings.

  • User Modeling on Demographic Attributes in Big Mobile Social Networks
    • Abstract: Yuxiao Dong, Nitesh V. Chawla, Jie Tang, Yang Yang, Yang Yang

      Users with demographic profiles in social networks offer the potential to understand the social principles that underpin our highly connected world, from individuals, to groups, to societies. In this article, we harness the power of network and data sciences to model the interplay between user demographics and social behavior and further study to what extent users’ demographic profiles can be inferred from their mobile communication patterns. By modeling over 7 million users and 1 billion mobile communication records, we find that during the active dating period (i.e., 18--35 years old), users are active in broadening social connections with males and females alike, while after reaching 35 years of age people tend to keep small, closed, and same-gender social circles.

  • Cross-Platform App Recommendation by Jointly Modeling Ratings and Texts
    • Abstract: Da Cao, Xiangnan He, Liqiang Nie, Xiaochi Wei, Xia Hu, Shunxiang Wu, Tat-Seng Chua

      Over the last decade, the renaissance of Web technologies has transformed the online world into an application (App) driven society. While the abundant Apps have provided great convenience, their sheer number also leads to severe information overload, making it difficult for users to identify desired Apps. To alleviate the information overloading issue, recommender systems have been proposed and deployed for the App domain. However, existing work on App recommendation has largely focused on one single platform (e.g., smartphones), while it ignores the rich data of other relevant platforms (e.g., tablets and computers). In this article, we tackle the problem of cross-platform App recommendation, aiming at leveraging users’ and Apps’ data on multiple platforms to enhance the recommendation accuracy.

  • Deriving User Preferences of Mobile Apps from Their Management Activities
    • Abstract: Xuanzhe Liu, Wei Ai, Huoran Li, Jian Tang, Gang Huang, Feng Feng, Qiaozhu Mei

      App marketplaces host millions of mobile apps that are downloaded billions of times. Investigating how people manage mobile apps in their everyday lives creates a unique opportunity to understand the behavior and preferences of mobile device users, infer the quality of apps, and improve user experience. Existing literature provides very limited knowledge about app management activities, due to the lack of app usage data at scale. This article takes the initiative to analyze a very large app management log collected through a leading Android app marketplace. The dataset covers 5 months of detailed downloading, updating, and uninstallation activities, which involve 17 million anonymized users and 1 million apps.

  • Computing Urban Traffic Congestions by Incorporating Sparse GPS Probe Data
           and Social Media Data
    • Abstract: Senzhang Wang, Xiaoming Zhang, Jianping Cao, Lifang He, Leon Stenneth, Philip S. Yu, Zhoujun Li, Zhiqiu Huang

      Estimating urban traffic conditions of an arterial network with GPS probe data is a practically important while substantially challenging problem, and has attracted increasing research interests recently. Although GPS probe data is becoming a ubiquitous data source for various traffic related applications currently, they are usually insufficient for fully estimating traffic conditions of a large arterial network due to the low sampling frequency. To explore other data sources for more effectively computing urban traffic conditions, we propose to collect various traffic events such as traffic accident and jam from social media as complementary information. In addition, to further explore other factors that might affect traffic conditions, we also extract rich auxiliary information including social events, road features, Point of Interest (POI), and weather.

  • Understanding the Purpose of Permission Use in Mobile Apps
    • Abstract: Haoyu Wang, Yuanchun Li, Yao Guo, Yuvraj Agarwal, Jason I. Hong

      Mobile apps frequently request access to sensitive data, such as location and contacts. Understanding the purpose of why sensitive data is accessed could help improve privacy as well as enable new kinds of access control. In this article, we propose a text mining based method to infer the purpose of sensitive data access by Android apps. The key idea we propose is to extract multiple features from app code and then use those features to train a machine learning classifier for purpose inference. We present the design, implementation, and evaluation of two complementary approaches to infer the purpose of permission use, first using purely static analysis, and then using primarily dynamic analysis.

  • A Time-Aware Personalized Point-of-Interest Recommendation via High-Order
           Tensor Factorization
    • Abstract: Xin Li, Mingming Jiang, Huiting Hong, Lejian Liao

      Recently, location-based services (LBSs) have been increasingly popular for people to experience new possibilities, for example, personalized point-of-interest (POI) recommendations that leverage on the overlapping of user trajectories to recommend POI collaboratively. POI recommendation is yet challenging as it suffers from the problems known for the conventional recommendation tasks such as data sparsity and cold start, and to a much greater extent. In the literature, most of the related works apply collaborate filtering to POI recommendation while overlooking the personalized time-variant human behavioral tendency. In this article, we put forward a fourth-order tensor factorization-based ranking methodology to recommend users their interested locations by considering their time-varying behavioral trends while capturing their long-term preferences and short-term preferences simultaneously.

  • Search by Screenshots for Universal Article Clipping in Mobile Apps
    • Abstract: Kazutoshi Umemoto, Ruihua Song, Jian-Yun Nie, Xing Xie, Katsumi Tanaka, Yong Rui

      To address the difficulty in clipping articles from various mobile applications (apps), we propose a novel framework called UniClip, which allows a user to snap a screen of an article to save the whole article in one place. The key task of the framework is search by screenshots, which has three challenges: (1) how to represent a screenshot; (2) how to formulate queries for effective article retrieval; and (3) how to identify the article from search results. We solve these by (1) segmenting a screenshot into structural units called blocks, (2) formulating effective search queries by considering the role of each block, and (3) aggregating the search result lists of multiple queries.

  • Version-Aware Rating Prediction for Mobile App Recommendation
    • Abstract: Yuan Yao, Wayne Xin Zhao, Yaojing Wang, Hanghang Tong, Feng Xu, Jian Lu

      With the great popularity of mobile devices, the amount of mobile apps has grown at a more dramatic rate than ever expected. A technical challenge is how to recommend suitable apps to mobile users. In this work, we identify and focus on a unique characteristic that exists in mobile app recommendation—that is, an app usually corresponds to multiple release versions. Based on this characteristic, we propose a fine-grain version-aware app recommendation problem. Instead of directly learning the users’ preferences over the apps, we aim to infer the ratings of users on a specific version of an app. However, the user-version rating matrix will be sparser than the corresponding user-app rating matrix, making existing recommendation methods less effective.

  • DeepMob: Learning Deep Knowledge of Human Emergency Behavior and Mobility
           from Big and Heterogeneous Data
    • Abstract: Xuan Song, Ryosuke Shibasaki, Nicholos Jing Yuan, Xing Xie, Tao Li, Ryutaro Adachi

      The frequency and intensity of natural disasters has increased significantly in recent decades, and this trend is expected to continue. Hence, understanding and predicting human evacuation behavior and mobility will play a vital role in planning effective humanitarian relief, disaster management, and long-term societal reconstruction. However, existing models are shallow models, and it is difficult to apply them for understanding the “deep knowledge” of human mobility. Therefore, in this study, we collect big and heterogeneous data (e.g., GPS records of 1.6 million users over 3 years, data on earthquakes that have occurred in Japan over 4 years, news report data, and transportation network data), and we build an intelligent system, namely, DeepMob, for understanding and predicting human evacuation behavior and mobility following different types of natural disasters.

  • Comparing the Archival Rate of Arabic, English, Danish, and Korean
           Language Web Pages
    • Abstract: Lulwah M. Alkwai, Michael L. Nelson, Michele C. Weigle

      It has long been suspected that web archives and search engines favor Western and English language webpages. In this article, we quantitatively explore how well indexed and archived Arabic language webpages are as compared to those from other languages. We began by sampling 15,092 unique URIs from three different website directories: DMOZ (multilingual), Raddadi, and Star28 (the last two primarily Arabic language). Using language identification tools, we eliminated pages not in the Arabic language (e.g., English-language versions of Aljazeera pages) and culled the collection to 7,976 Arabic language webpages. We then used these 7,976 pages and crawled the live web and web archives to produce a collection of 300,646 Arabic language pages.

  • GVoS: A General System for Near-Duplicate Video-Related Applications on
    • Abstract: Jiawei Jiang, Yunhai Tong, Hua Lu, Bin Cui, Kai Lei, Lele Yu

      The exponential increase of online videos greatly enriches the life of users but also brings huge numbers of near-duplicate videos (NDVs) that seriously challenge the video websites. The video websites entail NDV-related applications such as detection of copyright violation, video monitoring, video re-ranking, and video recommendation. Since these applications adopt different features and different processing procedures due to diverse scenarios, constructing separate and special-purpose systems for them incurs considerable costs on design, implementation, and maintenance. In this article, we propose a general NDV system on Storm (GVoS)—a popular distributed real-time stream processing platform—to simultaneously support a wide variety of video applications.

  • IDF for Word N-grams
    • Abstract: Masumi Shirakawa, Takahiro Hara, Shojiro Nishio

      Inverse Document Frequency (IDF) is widely accepted term weighting scheme whose robustness is supported by many theoretical justifications. However, applying IDF to word N-grams (or simply N-grams) of any length without relying on heuristics has remained a challenging issue. This article describes a theoretical extension of IDF to handle N-grams. First, we elucidate the theoretical relationship between IDF and information distance, a universal metric defined by the Kolmogorov complexity. Based on our understanding of this relationship, we propose N-gram IDF, a new IDF family that gives fair weights to words and phrases of any length. Based only on the magnitude relation of N-gram IDF weights, dominant N-grams among overlapping N-grams can be determined.

  • Clustered Elias-Fano Indexes
    • Abstract: Giulio Ermanno Pibiri, Rossano Venturini

      State-of-the-art encoders for inverted indexes compress each posting list individually. Encoding clusters of posting lists offers the possibility of reducing the redundancy of the lists while maintaining a noticeable query processing speed. In this article, we propose a new index representation based on clustering the collection of posting lists and, for each created cluster, building an ad hoc reference list with respect to which all lists in the cluster are encoded with Elias-Fano. We describe a posting lists clustering algorithm tailored for our encoder and two methods for building the reference list for a cluster. Both approaches are heuristic and differ in the way postings are added to the reference list: according to their frequency in the cluster or according to the number of bits necessary for their representation.

  • Unifying Virtual and Physical Worlds: Learning Toward Local and Global
    • Abstract: Xiang Wang, Liqiang Nie, Xuemeng Song, Dongxiang Zhang, Tat-Seng Chua

      Event-based social networking services, such as Meetup, are capable of linking online virtual interactions to offline physical activities. Compared to mono online social networking services (e.g., Twitter and Google+), such dual networks provide a complete picture of users’ online and offline behaviors that more often than not are compatible and complementary. In the light of this, we argue that joint learning over dual networks offers us a better way to comprehensively understand user behaviors and their underlying organizational principles. Despite its value, few efforts have been dedicated to jointly considering the following factors within a unified model: (1) local user contextualization, (2) global structure coherence, and (3) effectiveness evaluation.
