Project Details


This project aims to develop an early prediction system to predict possible outbreaks of malicious information in dynamic social networks. The research will primarily leverage deep representations of time-variant subsequence and substructure patterns in large-scale social networks to signal malicious and malevolent messages before it has a chance to propagate. The proposed project will lay the theoretical foundations of this emerging field to strengthen Australia’s world leadership role in data science. Practically, the novel theories and data analytics technologies developed will help to safeguard Australian business, industry, and society from cyberfraud, online rumour-mongering, and financial loss.
