Mining Web Data

  • Charu C. AggarwalEmail author


The Web is an unique phenomenon in many ways, in terms of its scale, the distributed and uncoordinated nature of its creation, the openness of the underlying platform, and the resulting diversity of applications it has enabled. Examples of such applications include e-commerce, user collaboration, and social network analysis. Because of the distributed and uncoordinated nature in which the Web is both created and used, it is a rich treasure trove of diverse types of data. This data can be either a source of knowledge about various subjects, or personal information about users.
