Towards Fair Classifiers Without Sensitive Attributes: Exploring Biases in Related Features

no code implementations29 Apr 2021 Tianxiang Zhao, Enyan Dai, Kai Shu, Suhang Wang

Though the sensitive attribute of each data sample is unknown, we observe that there are usually some non-sensitive features in the training data that are highly correlated with sensitive attributes, which can be used to alleviate the bias.

User Preference-aware Fake News Detection

1 code implementation25 Apr 2021 Yingtong Dou, Kai Shu, Congying Xia, Philip S. Yu, Lichao Sun

The majority of existing fake news detection algorithms focus on mining news content and/or the surrounding exogenous context for discovering deceptive signals; while the endogenous preference of a user when he/she decides to spread a piece of fake news or not is ignored.

Applications of Social Media in Hydroinformatics: A Survey

no code implementations1 May 2019 Yu-Feng Yu, Yuelong Zhu, Dingsheng Wan, Qun Zhao, Kai Shu, Huan Liu

Floods of research and practical applications employ social media data for a wide range of public applications, including environmental monitoring, water resource managing, disaster and emergency response. Hydroinformatics can benefit from the social media technologies with newly emerged data, techniques and analytical tools to handle large datasets, from which creative ideas and new values could be mined. This paper first proposes a 4W (What, Why, When, hoW) model and a methodological structure to better understand and represent the application of social media to hydroinformatics, then provides an overview of academic research of applying social media to hydroinformatics such as water environment, water resources, flood, drought and water Scarcity management.

The Role of User Profile for Fake News Detection

no code implementations30 Apr 2019 Kai Shu, Xinyi Zhou, Suhang Wang, Reza Zafarani, Huan Liu

In an attempt to understand connections between user profiles and fake news, first, we measure users' sharing behaviors on social media and group representative users who are more likely to share fake and real news; then, we perform a comparative analysis of explicit and implicit profile features between these user groups, which reveals their potential to help differentiate fake news from real news.
