Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining Research From Georgia Tech Highlights Medical Benefits, Social Applications, and More

KDD 2022, a premier interdisciplinary conference in data science, will be held in Washington, D.C. starting Aug. 14 and feature Georgia Tech researchers in the two main tracks – research papers and applied data science papers. The research event is organized by the Association for Computing Machinery’s Special Interest Group on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining.

“The annual KDD conference showcases the most innovative research and applied data science being conducted today,” said Wei Wang, SIGKDD chair, Leonard Kleinrock chair professor in computer science, and director of the Scalable Analytics Institute at University of California, Los Angeles.

“Collectively, these papers represent the future and promise of data science.”

KDD 2022 focuses on all aspects of knowledge discovery and data mining, from theoretical research on emerging science to papers assessing. This year’s papers were selected from over 2,000 papers initially submitted for consideration at KDD 2022. Topics of focus for this year’s papers include adversarial learning, anomaly detection, deep learning, text mining, and data ethics.

Georgia Tech’s presence includes the following sessions:

Research Papers track

  • Graph Mining
  • Interdisciplinary Applications: Medicine, Humanities and Social Good
  • Potpourri Applications

Applied Data Science Papers track

  • Human & Interfaces
  • Search and Information Retrieval

Below are details for Georgia Tech research and paper links, when available.
