Welcome to the website of Computer and Information Network (COIN) laboratory of University of Terhan, Faculty of New Sciences and Technologies. The mission of COIN is to perform innovative research in areas metioned below:
Social network and media analisys: We are trying to analyze large-scale data gathered from online social media and networks sites, aiming to study user behaviors in such platforms. In the first area, we are mainly focused on the roles of structural properties of a network (i.e., the topology of a social network as an underlying network) in the behavior of dynamical processes over them. On the other hand, with rapid growth of Web 2.0 technologies and social media, nowadays we have a huge volume of opinionated data recorded in digital forms such as online reviews, forum discussions, comments on blogs and social networks. Then, in the second area, we are trying to process the content of a media (e.g., a tweet on Twitter) with NLP (natural language processing) methods for opinion mining and sentiment analysis.
Internet of Things (IoT): The IoT is the network of things (or objects) with embedded technologies to sense and communicate, which enables these things to gather data from the environment and exchange collected data. In the COIN lab, we are studying network infrastructure needed for developing IoT applications and the potential benefits and challenges of analyzing IoT data.
