Dr. Tom Shafer coauthored "A numerical evaluation of the accuracy of influence maximization algorithms" published in the journal Social Network Analysis and Mining. In the article, the authors use GPU computing and reverse influence sampling (RIS) to study how well common techniques, which offer only loose guarantees around solution quality, solve the influence maximization problem in practice.
