Springer Book Chapter
Right from its inception, social media has played a pivotal role in shaping the marketing strategies of today’s business. Businesses use marketing to successfully grow their market presence and improve brand awareness. The most effective marketing approach is one where social media and traditional marketing mixes are used in tandem. Social media marketing is a lucrative option for business owners as the cost of marketing is low and user feedback on social media Web sites and forums can be utilized effectively to constantly update the marketing strategy for maximizing gains. This chapter focuses on analyzing the Facebook marketing strategy of a certain company and providing a comparative study of visualization methodologies that present the client sentiment in the most lucid manner, thereby allowing the business owner to devise an effective business model with maximum returns and minimum expenditure.

Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) are used in computer networks to safeguard the integrity and confidentiality of sensitive data. In recent years, network traffic has become sizeable enough to be considered under the big data domain. Current machine learning based techniques used in IDS are largely defined on eager learning paradigms which lose performance efficiency by trying to generalize training data before receiving queries thereby incurring overheads for trivial computations. This paper, proposes the use of lazy learning methodologies to improve overall performance of IDS. A novel heuristic weight based indexing technique has been used to overcome the drawback of high search complexity inherent in lazy learning. IBk and LWL, two popular lazy learning algorithms have been compared and applied on the NSL-KDD dataset for simulating a real-world like scenario and comparing their relative performances with hw-IBk. The results of this paper clearly indicate lazy algorithms as a viable solution for real-world network intrusion detection.

The onset of the Big Data phenomenon, has brought to light the need to store and process data externally for effective and efficient computation. Cloud computing is a technology that has enabled individual users and organizations alike to implement such a functionality. Currently, a large percentage of the data being generated is stored on clouds and the number of organizations opting for cloud based technologies is constantly on the rise. With such growing numbers accessing and utilizing cloud resources, data security has become a major cause of concern. Traditional methods of cloud computing are becoming obsolete and ineffective with each technological breakthrough and data is thus highly subjected to getting corrupted or hacked. Machine Learning algorithms can be implemented to program the security mechanism such that the cloud is able to verify and secure the data with greater efficiency and improve the security predictions as more and more data gets accumulated. An AI (Artificial Intelligence) driven framework for cloud computing, can not only handle the current data traffic but is also a viable framework for the future as it learns and improves itself constantly as the accreted knowledge base increases. This paper implements Random Forest machine learning algorithm to improve the data security in cloud computing.
