Hello! My name is Kornraphop Kawintiranon (Ken)
. I am a Ph.D student in Computer Science
at Georgetown University
located in Washington, DC. My main research focuses on Data Science and Natural Language Processing (NLP). My current project is to answer the research question "How to detect misleading information spreading on Social Network?"
. In my opinion, the simplest type of misleading information to detect is spam detection on twitter. Most literature mainly focuses on spammer detection in which they utilize user's information and their networks in addition to their tweet texts. However, since my ultimate goal is not to detect spammers but the misleading information, which is much more abstract and more difficult, therefore I am working with Prof. Lisa Singh
on content-based spam detection, the simplest type of misleading information detection.
