Latent Personal Analysis and Its applications

Dr. Osnat (Ossi) Mokryn
Senior Lecturer, Information Systems
University of Haifa, Israel

Wednesday October 12, 2022
12:00-1:00pm EDT

Hybrid (EB-T1 & Zoom; meeting link below)

We present domain-based latent personal analysis (LPA) for finding domain-based attributes for the entities in it, a measure of their distance from the domain, and their signature, which identifies the most significant ways in which they differ from the domain. This method identifies for each entity the elements whose Shannon information differs most from that of their counterparts in the domain. We then demonstrate LPA uses in a variety of areas, including impersonation detection in social media, the spectral spread of sub repertoires of clonal B- cell populations within a person, and digital humanities.

Speaker bio:
Dr. Osnat (Ossi) Mokryn is a senior lecturer in the Department of Information Systems at the University of Haifa, Israel, where she leads the Content and Social Networks Group (SCAN). Ossi is interested in identifying governing principles for understanding highly complex systems using real-world data. Recently, her research has focused on the temporal behavior of complex systems and devising methods for extracting knowledge from unstructured data. She is currently a visiting scholar at Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS).
