About

I am a researcher at LIAAD, INESCTEC Porto and pursuing my Ph.D in Informatics Engineering at FEUP, University of Porto under the supervision of Prof. João Gama. I hold the degrees of Bachelor’s and Master’s in Computer Applications from Kakatiya University (KU) in India. My research focus is on Machine Learning, Networked Data Streams, Evolutionary Social Graphs and Social Network Analysis. I was an Organizing Committee member of Discovery Challenge at EPIA’2017, High Velocity Mobile Data Mining Workshop at IEEE MDM’2016 and DSIE’2015.

Abstract
Social network analysis (SNA) is a core pursuit of analyzing social networks today. In addition to the usual statistical techniques of data analysis, these networks are investigated using SNA measures. It helps in understanding the dependencies between social entities in the data, characterizing their behaviors and their effect on the network as a whole and over time. Therefore, this article attempts to provide a succinct overview of SNA in diverse topological networks (static, temporal, and evolving networks) and perspective (ego-networks). As one of the primary applicability of SNA is in networked data mining, we provide a brief overview of network mining models as well; by this, we present the readers with a concise guided tour from analysis to mining of networks.

Abstract
Considering the avalanche of evolving data and the memory constraints, streaming networks’ sampling has gained much attention in the recent decade. However, samples choosing data uniformly from the beginning to the end of a temporal stream are not very relevant for temporally evolving networks where recent activities are more important than the old events. Moreover, the relationships also change overtime. Recent interactions are evident to show the current status of relationships, nevertheless some old stronger relations are also substantially significant. Considering the above issues we propose a fast memory less dynamic sampling mechanism for weighted or multi-graph high-speed streams. For this purpose, we use a forgetting function with two parameters that help introduce biases on the network based on time and relationship strengths. Our experiments on real-world data sets show that our samples not only preserve the basic properties like degree distributions but also maintain the temporal distribution correlations. We also observe that our method generates samples with increased efficiency. It also outperforms current sampling algorithms in the area. © 2019, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
