报告人：Zhongfei Zhang Professor
Complex data include almost all the data scenarios we encounter everyday and also we face in many real-world applications. The specific examples in complex data learning for knowledge discovery include problems in social network analysis, natural language understanding and visual data understanding, as well as problems in noisy data learning.
