Information Retrieval and Data Mining Prize Poster Day 2015


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.
