This research group studies social computing. Especially we work on recommender systems, opinion mining and human factor analysis on social media. Social media as represented by Twitter, Facebook and Wikipedia consists of various kinds of data like documents, links, comments, tags, ratings, social relationships, and so on. These data can be seen as footprints of many people on social media. The deep analysis of the relationships among these data yields a new application or service enriching people’s life.
