Speaker: Dr. Yujing Sun, Research Assistant Professor of Department of Computer Science, HKU
Abstract: Cryptocurrency is sparking an economic revolution. Both Industry and academia urge to understand different types of cryptocurrency data. In this talk, I will talk about two kinds of analytical methods, one is human-centered visual analytics which focuses on how to demonstrate data in a more understandable way. Another is data-driven mining techniques that can find anomalies, patterns, and correlations within cryptocurrency transaction data. Both of the methods are popular and useful but enable users to interpret cryptocurrency data from different perspectives. Collectively, they provide an integrated solution for cryptocurrency data understanding from the data-backend as well as from the visualization frontend.
