IPS Digital Frontiers Seminar: Man and Machine (2)- Online and Offline Sensing of Public Sentiments on National Day Rally 2016

As more people take to the cyberspace to express their opinions, governments and organisations face the challenge of making sense of a cluttered online space.

International Workshop on Fraud Detection in Mobile Advertising(FDMA 2012), 4 November 2012, Singapore

Online advertising flourishes as the ideal choice for both small and large businesses to target their marketing campaigns to the appropriate customers on the fly. An advertiser provides an advertising commissioner with its advertisements, plans a budget, and sets a commission for each customer action. The content publishers, on the other hand, make a contract with the commissioner to display advertisements on their websites. However, since publishers earn revenue based on impressions and clicks they drive to advertisers, there is an incentive for dishonest publishers to inflate the number of impressions/clicks their sites generate—a phenomenon known as click fraud.
