Title: Enhancing data privacy and security related process through machine learning
Abstract: In this thesis, we exploit the advantages of Machine learning (ML) in the domains of data security and data privacy. ML is one of the most exciting technologies being developed in the world today. The major advantages of ML technology are its prediction capability and its ability to reduce the need for human activities to perform tasks. These benefits motivated us to exploit ML to improve users' data privacy and security. Firstly, we use ML technology to try to predict the best privacy settings for users, since ML has a strong prediction ability and the average user might find it difficult to properly set up privacy settings due to a lack of knowledge and subsequent lack of decision-making abilities regarding the privacy of their data. Besides, since the ML approach has the potential to considerably cut down on manual efforts by humans, our second task in this thesis is to exploit ML technology to redesign security mechanisms of social media environments that rely on human participation for providing such services. In particular, we use ML to train spam filters for identifying and removing violent, insulting, aggressive, and harassing content creators (a.k.a. spammers) from a social media platform. It helps to solve violent and aggressive issues that have been growing on social media environments. The experimental results show that our proposals are efficient and effective.
