This project aims to systematically study how to meet emerging challenges from “4Vs (Volume, Veracity, Variety, Velocity)” of big data and develop a scalable, robust and real-time recommender system framework in a cost-effective and end-to-end manner. Specifically, our goal consists of four subtasks:
- developing a compact latent factor model for scalable recommendation;
- developing an anti-shilling model for secure recommendation;
- developing a heterogeneous feature embedding and fusion framework to enhance the robustness for cold-start recommendation;
- developing a meta learningbased online learning scheme to support streaming recommendation.
A working knowledge of deriving state-of-the-art machine learning approaches for real-world applications and publishing conference/journal papers on prestigious venues would be of benefit to someone working on this project.

The Responsible Big Data Intelligence Lab (RBDI) is based in the School of ITEE, The University of Queensland. RBDI Lab aims and strives to develop energy-efficient, privacy-preserving, robust, explainable and fair data mining and machine learning techniques with theoretical backbones to better discover actionable patterns and intelligence from large-scale, heterogeneous, networked, dynamic and sparse data. RBDI joins forces with other fields such as urban transportation, healthcare, agriculture, E-commerce and marketing to help solve societal, environmental and economical challenges facing humanity, in pursuit of a sustainable future.
