RESEARCH ABSTRACT [Back to top]

Information propagation is a very well-studied phenomenon. From long ago, people are trying to understand how a piece of information travels from one person to another. Two types of information flows which have drawn most of the attentions of the researchers, are i) knowledge information flow (flow of ideas, innovations etc. mainly among scientists) and ii) social information flow (flow of news, gossips, opinions etc.). In every information propagation, there exist some hidden factors which are generally dormant and not given much importance, but if handled carefully, they can play crucial roles in deciding the properties (like size, speed etc.) of the diffusion. In our work, we want to analyze both types of information flows to identify those dormant factors and propose new models for information diffusion dynamics keeping them in consideration. Banking on that knowledge, we want to build novel techniques to accelerate and expand an on-going information diffusion and deploy them in large scale for the benefit of end-users.
