  • Sihong Xie, Guan Wang, Shuyang Lin, and Philip S. Yu, Review Spam Detection via Time Series Pattern Discovery, KDD'12
  • Review spams are anonying. When a spammer writes many fake reviews, we have more clues to catch him/her. However, what if the spammer registers many accounts and only writes one review per account?
    This paper explores the first way of catching singluar spammers. A short version of this paper appears at WWW'12 poster session.
  • Guan Wang, Sihong Xie, Bing Liu, and Philip S. Yu, Review Graph based Online Store Review Spammer Detection, ICDM'11
  • Who are telling lies about their online shopping experiences and trying to promote/demote stores? It's hard to tell even for human after reading these reviews. Is it harder for machines to tell WITHOUT even looking at any review text? The answer is counter-intuitive: Probably not.
    This paper gives the first construction of review graph and use it to catch spammers.
