UCL’s Media Futures group celebrated the end of the ‘Information Retrieval and Data Mining’ (IR&DM) course at its 2nd annual end-of-term poster session in UCL’s North Cloisters. During this event, students from the Master’s level course present posters describing their group projects to each other and members of the Media Futures Group. Projects ranged from determining PageRank scores for Wikipedia pages in a distributed system to sentiment and opinion analysis of US election tweets.
The posters and their presentation were assessed by UCL staff members and PhD students and the top three awarded prizes. With over 30 student groups with high quality posters in this year’s cohort, the competition was as tough as it’s ever been.
The three winners of the UCL Information Retrieval and Data Mining Prize were:
Fabiano Riccardi, Samuel Oberholzer and Nicolas Kick
Giulia Deiana and Li Khoo
Chad Langford, Stanley Gu and James Durrant
