synthetic package¶

Provides a method to load a synthetic review dataset.

The synthetic review dataset has been introduced in the paper [1] published in the 22nd International Conference on Database and Expert Systems Applications.

The number of anomalous reviewers this dataset has is defined in ANOMALOUS_REVIEWER_SIZE, and each anomalous reviewer has anomaly in theirname.

This package provides a metho load, which is an alias of synthetic.loader.load(). The method takes a graph instance and adds reviewers, products, and reviews to the graph.
