In this talk, I will discuss the recent results done by the HKU STAR Lab (Social Technology and Research Laboratory) established in 2021. The lab has been working on fundamental data science research, as well as novel data-driven technologies for serving the society. I will first describe how we tackle the challenge of the huge volume and complexity of graph data, based on developing novel graph algorithms (e.g., densest subgraph discovery and higher-order graph analysis). I will also discuss how heterogeneous information networks can be used to support the matching of elders' needs and helpers' expertise in HINCare - our multiple-NGO volunteering support platform.
