Goal: To study current papers from journals and conference proceedings in text retrieval and text mining.
Examples of problems include topic models, web retrieval and web mining, ranking strategies, ambiguity resolution, knowledge discovery, web phenomenon including social networks, information extraction and text classification, deep learning/machine learning, obfuscation, text privacy.
The reading group is lead by Professor Padmini Srinivasan.
Interested students (from beginning to advanced students) and faculty are invited to participate in the reading group. Participation format is informal with individuals taking turns to present an overview of the selected paper and lead the discussion. This forum has resulted in collaborative projects and published papers.
