We, members of Dept. of Computer Science and Information Engineering at National Cheng Kung University, devote to systems and algorithms on BigData Processing, Data Mining, and Data Visualization. We have explored several innovative research and industrial projects, itemizing in the following pages. Netdb lab is recruiting new members now, including students pursuing the Ph.D. degree. We also welcome the discussion on potential collaboration from academy and industry. Reach us at Room 65602, New Building of CSIE at NCKU.
Some Netdbers organized the TaiwanStat community, delivering the knowledge from data understanding to people. Currently, the data sources pick from Open Data which are provided by the Taiwan government. We also have some collaboration from academic . In Facebook, we have a dedicated fans page with more than 22K members (2015/8).
We explore two spatial KNN query algorithms on road networks, published in ACM CIKM 2011 and ACM CIKM 2013. We are motivated by the phenomenon of "80-20 rule", and try to identify so-called hot query subgraphs to facilitate the spatial KNN query. The cache-like mechanism enables the constant-time query of KNN objects. Check the details in these two papers.  Ying-Ju Chen, Kun-Ta Chuang, and Ming-Syan Chen "Coupling or Decoupling for KNN Search on Road Networks? A Hybrid Framework on User Query Patterns", in ACM CIKM 2011.  Ying-Ju Chen, Kun-Ta Chuang, and Ming-Syan Chen "Spatial-Temporal Query Homogeneity for KNN Object Search on Road Networks ", in ACM CIKM 2013.
We launched an innovative web service, called Canner, in the beta mode. Canner is designed in light with the principle to decouple web content and web view, allowing page owners to create one-page websites in minutes. Page owners can also seek for web programmers to further revise their pages collaboratively. Welcome to have a try!
Influential Sustainability on Social Networks Paragraph: We study a novel paradigm of viral marketing with the goal to sustain the influential effectiveness in the network. We investigate from real cases such as the Ice Bucket Challenges for the ALS awareness, and figure out the "easy come and easy go" phenomenon in the marketing promotion. The goal of Influential Sustainability is to best decide the timing to activate each seed so as to maximize the number of iterations in which each iteration will activate the number of inactive nodes more than the threshold.
