  • Research on the Million Follower Fallacy Receives ..

    Professor Meeyoung Cha’s research investigating the correlation between the number of followers on social media and its influence was re-highlighted after 10 years of publication of the paper. Saying that her research is still as relevant today as the day it was published 10 years ago, the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) presented Professor Cha from the School of Computing with the Test of Time Award during the 14th International Conference on Web and Social Media (ICWSM) held online June 8 through 11. In her 2010 paper titled ‘Measuring User Influence in Twitter: The Million Follower Fallacy,’ Professor Cha proved that number of followers does not match the influential power. She investigated the data including 54,981,152 user accounts, 1,963,263,821 social links, and 1,755,925,520 Tweets, collected with 50 servers. The research compares and illustrates the limitations of various methods used to measure the influence a user has on a social networking platform. These results provided new insights and interpretations of the influencer selection algorithm used to maximize the advertising impact on big social networking platforms. The research also looked at how long an influential user was active for, and whether the user could freely cross the borders between fields and be influential on different topics as well. By analyzing cases of who becomes an influencer when new events occur, it was shown that a person could quickly become an influencer using several key tactics, unlike what was previously claimed by the ‘accidental influential theory’. Professor Cha explained, “At the time, data from social networking platforms did not receive much attention in computer science, but I remember those all-nighters I pulled to work on this project, fascinated by the fact that internet data could be used to solve difficult social science problems. I feel so grateful that my research has been endeared for such a long time.” Professor Cha received both her undergraduate and graduate degrees from KAIST, and conducted this research during her postdoctoral course at the Max Planck Institute in Germany. She now also serves as a chief investigator of a data science group at the Institute for Basic Science (IBS). (END)

  • Prof. Sooel Son's research team published a paper ..

    A research team led by Prof. Sooel Son published a paper, titled FUSE: Finding File Upload Bugs via Penetration Testing in Network and Distributed System Security (NDSS), one of the top security conferences in San Diego, USA from Feb. 24 to 27, 2020. File uploading feature in modern web applications is important in terms of sharing user-generated contents. However, there is a potential security threat in that the file upload function may upload arbitrary files created by attackers to the target server and used to take over the target system. In this study, the team of Web Security & Privacy Lab created a simulation testing tool called FUSE, found 30 new vulnerabilities in file uploading features from 33 popular web applications such as WordPress and Joomla, and received 15 CVEs. In addition, the research team released a mock attack testing tool FUSE on GitHub as well. Paper site: https://wsp-lab.github.io/papers/lee-fuse-ndss20.pdf Code site: https://github.com/WSP-LAB/FUSE

    Yeonsu Kim, an undergraduate student of our school, won the best research award of the undergraduate research program (URP) on August 28, 2019 (advisor: Prof. Sung-Ju Lee and research assistant: Taesik Gong). This research is a collaborative work with Prof. Jinwoo Shin at the School of Electrical Engineering and is accepted to an international conference, ACM SenSys: Taesik Gong, Yeonsu Kim, Jinwoo Shin, and Sung-Ju Lee, "MetaSense: Few-Shot Adaptation to Untrained Conditions in Deep Mobile Sensing", In Proceedings of ACM SenSys 2019. They propose a novel method that allows machine learning applications using mobile sensors under ill-posed conditions. Recently, deep learning evolution allows researchers to focus on running various applications on personal mobile devices, for example, diagnosing heart attack using a mobile sensor. However, these deep-learning-based applications have presented suboptimal performance when using untrained personal data or devices. This work encourages more practical mobile sensing applications to be developed.
