SPR2EP: A Semi-Supervised Spam Review Detection Framework

2018-08-31
Authenticity and reliability of the information spread over the cyberspace is becoming increasingly important. This is especially important in e-commerce since potential customers check reviews and customer feedbacks online before making a purchasing decision. Although this information is easily accessible through related websites, lack of verification of the authenticity of these reviews raises concerns about their reliability. Besides, fraudulent users disseminate misinformation to deceive people into acting against their interest. So, detection of fake and unreliable reviews is a crucial problem that must be addressed by the security researchers.

Optimization of an online course with web usage mining
Akman, LE; Akkan, B; Baykal, Nazife (2004-02-18)
The huge amount of information existing in the World Wide Web constitutes an ideal environment to implement data mining techniques. Web mining is the mining of web data. There are different applications of web mining: web content mining, web structure mining and web usage mining. In our study we analyzed an online course by web usage mining techniques in order to optimize the navigation paths, the duration of the time spend on each page and the number of visits throughout the semester of the course. Moreove...
Malware Detection Using Transformers-based Model GPT-2
Şahin, Nazenin; Acartürk, Cengiz; Department of Cybersecurity (2021-11-17)
The variety of malicious content, besides its complexity, has significantly impacted end-users of the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). To mitigate the effect of malicious content, automated machine learning techniques have been developed to proactively defend the user systems against malware. Transformers, a category of attention-based deep learning techniques, have recently been shown to be effective in solving various malware problems by mainly employing Natural Language Processing (NLP) ...
Event detection on social media using transaction based stream processing engine
Çınar, Hüseyin Alper; Karagöz, Pınar; Department of Computer Engineering (2019)
The aim of this study is detecting events on social media by improving current solutions in terms of accuracy and time performance. An event is something that occurs in a short duration of time in a certain place. In this thesis, the problem is modelled as a streaming transaction process. Three different event detection method is adapted to our solution. First one is the keyword-based event detection method that looks for bursty keywords in a period. The second one is the clustering-based event detection me...
Multi-modal learning with generalizable nonlinear dimensionality reduction
Kaya, Semih; Vural, Elif; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
Thanks to significant advancements in information technologies, people can acquire various types of data from the universe. This data may include multiple features in different domains. Widespread machine learning methods benefit from distinctive features of data to reach desired outputs. Numerous studies demonstrate that machine learning algorithms that make use of multi-modal representations of data have more potential than methods with single modal structure. This potential comes from the mutual agreemen...
