PhD: Social Network Data Management

In: Publication

20 Dec 2011

Even long journeys eventually come to an end. After 4 years of intensive research I successfully defended my doctoral dissertation at the University of Maryland. The thesis ties together my work on indexing and querying huge social networks and machine learning on multi-relational data under the common theme of social network data management. A lot of this work is introduced in individual blog posts on this site.

Title: Social Network Data Management.

With the increasing usage of online social networks and the semantic web’s graph structured RDF framework, and the rising adoption of networks in various fields from biology to social science, there is a rapidly growing need for indexing, querying, and analyzing massive graph structured data. Facebook has amassed over 500 million users creating huge volumes of highly connected data. Governments have made RDF datasets containing billions of triples available to the public. In the life sciences, researches have started to connect disparate data sets of research results into one giant network of valuable information. Clearly, networks are becoming increasingly popular and growing rapidly in size, requiring scalable solutions for network data management.

This thesis focuses on the following aspects of network data management. We present a hierarchical index structure for external memory storage of network data that aims to maximize data locality. We propose efficient algorithms to answer subgraph matching queries against network databases and discuss effective pruning strategies to improve performance. We show how adaptive cost models can speed up subgraph matching query answering by assigning budgets to index retrieval operations and adjusting the query plan while executing.

We develop a cloud oriented social network database, COSI, which handles massive network datasets too large for a single computer by partitioning the data across multiple machines and achieving high performance query answering through asynchronous parallelization and cluster-aware heuristics.

Tracking multiple standing queries against a social network database is much faster with our novel multi-view maintenance algorithm, which exploits common substructures between queries.

To capture uncertainty inherent in social network querying, we define probabilistic subgraph matching queries over deterministic graph data and propose algorithms to answer them efficiently.

Finally, we introduce a general relational machine learning framework and rule-based language, Probabilistic Soft Logic, to learn from and probabilistically reason about social network data and describe applications to information integration and information fusion.

Partecipare alla macchia, come si nota. Bagnate un tovagliolo di carta bianco o una spugna e tamponare delicatamente la macchia per rimuovere il primo strato di inchiostro. Fare attenzione a non strofinare la macchia, come sar? striscio e probabilmente diventare pi? grande. Si pu? anche mettere una goccia di sapone per piatti sul tovagliolo di carta e asciugare delicatamente la macchia. Per ancor spruzzo, stare a circa two centimetri di distanza dal vello. Attendere ten secondi per il liquido di penetrare l’inchiostro. Tamponare l’inchiostro con un tovagliolo di carta bianco secco e poi strofinare delicatamente con un movimento circolare. Spostare il tovagliolo di carta, spesso in modo che una zona pulita continua a toccare il punto. Quando la maggior parte degli impianti di risalita di inchiostro, saturare l’area di nuovo con lacca e mantenere tamponando e strofinando delicatamente fino a quando il vello ? completamente pulita. Dopo che si asciuga in pile, lavare come al solito in acqua calda.

After a slow start, down by as much as 10 points in the fi rst quarter, Seton鈥檚 girls basketball team pulled within one point twice but failed to overcome turnovers and missed free throws ultimately losing 49-52 to the No. 12 seed, Maricopa, in the finals March 2 at Gila River Arena. Seton鈥檚 young team鈥攏o one starts who is not a freshman or sophomore鈥?no doubt gained experience that will serve them well next year. However, it had to be a bitter pill to swallow as the No. 2 seed failed to secure coach Karen Self a record-tying 8th girls state title. Twin towers Jenn and LeeAnne Wirth, at 6-foot-3 and 6-foot-2, usually dominate the paint, but Maricopa鈥檚 speed and athleticism forced Seton to turn the ball over 11 times, leading to 16 fastbreak points for Maricopa by early in the third quarter. Sarah Barcello, Corona鈥檚 Alex Barcello鈥檚 freshman sister, struggled early on but still managed to score 15 points in the loss. Other players in the starting lineup for the Sentinels were sophomore Liz Holter and freshman Kendall Krick. burberry outlet online EAGLE SCOUT BADGE
