Context: This semester (Fall 2016), I am taking a PhD-level course called Advanced Topics in Data Mining. Each week we read four published papers in the fields of data mining and machine learning. We take turns presenting on the readings so that each student will present on six of the papers through the semester.
I recently read and presented about the article Finding a Team of Experts in Social Networks, Lappas et al., published in SIGKDD, 2009. The slides shared below summarize the article's key findings and techniques.
