Toward Controlling Malicious Users in Online Social Platforms

Our special guest, Dr. Anna Squicciarini, will give a talk entitled „Toward Controlling Malicious Users in Online Social Platforms“. This talk will discuss social science and computational methodologies to build a socio-computational framework that takes an intelligence-driven approach to the problem of users’ online misbehavior. We discuss models aiming at modeling influence and dynamics of both normal and deviant users in online networks – including crowdsourcing sites. We present results from our studies, with focus on our online deviance (e.g. cyberbullying) as well as our work in the domain of malicious behavior in crowdsourcing sites. We conclude with an outlook at our unsolved research challenges in the space of detection of deviant behavior and oversharing.
