COMP 45th Anniversary Distinguished Lecture Series

COMP launched the Distinguished Lecture Series in celebration of its 45th anniversary and the second lecture “Big Social Media Data and Its Challenges for Machine Learning” by Prof. Huan Liu, Professor from Arizona State University, was held on 17 April at PolyU with a full house participation.  

Attendees were impressed by Prof. Liu’s analytical insight and pioneering thinking. He examined some critical issues related to big social media data such as how to make `big’ data bigger, how to protect a user’s privacy without the loss of service utility, and how to evaluate machine learned results without ground truth and at scale. 

Throughout 2019, we will invite renowned scholars and researchers to deliver Distinguished Lectures on a wide range of hot IT topics, including AI, Big Data, Social Media, Machine Learning and Cloud Computing.
