Title: Fake Content, Manipulated Accounts, Chatbots, and KillFies on Social Media 

Speaker: Dr. Ponnurangam Kumaraguru ("PK")
         Associate Professor, IIIT-Delhi

Abstract: With increase in usage of the Internet, there has been an
exponential increase in the use of online social media on the
Internet. Websites like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tinder, YouTube,
and many others have changed the way the Internet is being used. There
is a dire need to investigate, measure, and understand privacy and
security on online social media from various perspectives
(computational, cultural, psychological). Real world scalable systems
need to be built to detect and defend security and privacy issues on
online social media. I will describe briefly some cool projects that
we work on: (Mis)Information / Fake content on Twitter, Facebook, and
WhatsApp; Linking profiles across different social networks; Selfie
deaths and KillFies; and Manipulated followers. Many of our research
work is made available for public use through tools or online services
at precog.iiitd.edu.in <http://precog.iiitd.edu.in/> including
datasets that we have used in our research work. Our work derives
techniques from Computational Social Science, Data Science,
Statistics, and Network Science. I will be more than happy to clarify,
discuss, any of our work in detail, as required, after the talk.
