Abstract

Relational learning has been proposed to cope with the interdependency among linked instances in a network, and it is a fundamental tool to categorize social network users for various tasks. However, the emerging widespread of misinformation in social networks, information that is inaccurate or false, poses novel challenges to utilizing social media data. Malicious users may actively manipulate their content and characteristics, which easily lead to a noisy dataset. Hence, it is intricate for traditional relational learning approaches to deliver an accurate predictive model in the presence of misinformation. In this work, we precisely focus on the problem by proposing a joint framework that simultaneously constructs a relational learning model and mitigates the effect of misinformation by restraining anomalous points. Empirical results on real-world social media data prove the superiority of the proposed approach, Relational Learning with Misinformation (RLM), over traditional approaches on modeling social network users.
