Web usage mining on e-commerce websites Grażyna Suchacka – University of Opole Duration: 8 hours When: 14 – 16 June, 2021 Where: Microsoft Teams PhD credits (DIBRIS metric): 2 PLEASE ENROLL HERE (attendance is FREE):… Abstract -------- The course deals with the application of machine learning methods to Web data, in particular in the context of two research problems: detecting Web bots and predicting purchases in online stores. The first problem is due to the presence of artificial agents on the Web which pose a threat to the website security, privacy, and performance. Continuous development of artificial agents’ technology makes Web bot detection, both in the offline and real-time settings, harder and harder. The second problem is connected with discovering various user profiles on e-commerce websites and identifying user sessions with high probability of making a purchase. The problems under consideration are key issues in the era of the rapid development of e-commerce, advanced Web-based technologies, and big data.
