Thiago NobregaThiago Nóbrega is a student in the Department of Computing Systems of the Federal University of Campina Grande (DSC/UFCG) and a member of the Data Quality Research Group. DQRG is a research group that investigates and develops novel techniques, approaches, processes, and tools for evaluating and improving the quality of data sets, taking into account critical aspects of contemporary data analysis: reliability and performance.

The main focus of the group is to facilitate and improve the effectiveness of key tasks that rely on the quality of the data, such as: data integration, schema integration, data mining and decision making. The group is formed by students, faculty, and staff from the Department of Computing Systems of the Federal University of Campina Grande (DSC/UFCG).

The Database, Data Mining, and Bioinformatics lab’s (DBL)
research focuses on network science, scalable querying, and mining of graphs, and bioinformatics.

Network science is a new and emerging scientific discipline that examines the interconnections among diverse physical or engineered networks, information networks, biological networks, cognitive and semantic networks, and social networks. This field of science seeks to discover common principles, algorithms and tools that govern network behavior.

DBL is developing methodologies, algorithms, and implementations needed for scalable, dynamic, and resilient networks. Specific problems include querying composite networks, modeling dynamic networks, sentiment analysis, analysis of content and user behavior, discovering unusual patterns, and sampling in composite networks.

DBL PeopleDBL will use the CrowdSignals.io data for academic research, studying the dataset from a network-based modeling perspective.
