CIKM2017's notifications are out. So there will be nine papers (full/short/demo/workshop) co-authored by our research group at the University of Amsterdam this year. To make it more convenient for those who are going to attend CIKM this year to follow up on our research, we decided to prepare a list of our contributions. I've designed a bookmark […]
A couple weeks a go, I attended MILLA Deep Learning summer school (DLSS) from June 26th to July 1st and Reinforcement Learning summer school (RLSS) from July 3rd to 5th, 2017, organized by Yoshua Bengio and Aaron Courville. You can find information about the lectures here. In the following, I will share some of "my" highlights from […]
We're going to organize the "Neural Networks for Information Retrieval" tutorial at SIGIR2017, Tokyo, Japan. You can read about our tutorial at http://nn4ir.com/. I've tried to design (kind of) a logo for our tutorial:
I've designed another thesis cover for Ridho Reinanda, one the ILPSers who just defended his thesis on "Entity Associations for Search". He is going to joint Bloomberg in London as a data scientists. Here is the thesis cover: and here is its the bookmark:
I've designed the thesis cover for one of the ILPSers, Aleksandr Chucklin who has just defended his PhD. His thesis is about "Understanding and Modeling Users of Modern Search Engines". Here is the thesis cover: and here is its the bookmark:
I've started a four-months internship at Google Research \o/. I am working on Natural Language Generation using Neural Computational Models, with Aliaksei Severy, Enrique Alfonseca and Sascha Rothe.
"Poison Pills and Antidots: Inoculating Relevance Feedback", an article published in Amsterdam Science Magazine as one of the cool contributions of our CIKM2016 paper. We also have a extended abstract describing this part, accepted to be presented in DIR2016 "Inoculating Relevance Feedback Against Poison Pills", with Hosein Azarbonyad, Jaap Kamps, Djoerd Hiemstra and Maarten Marx.

We have got the "Best paper Award" in The ACM International Conference on the Theory of Information Retrieval (ICTIR2016) for our paper "On Horizontal and Vertical Separation in Hierarchical Text Classification". \o/ Please take a look at my posts on "From Probability Ranking Principle to Strong Separation Principle", and "Two-dimensional separability in Hierarchical Text Classification") for more information on […]
I have got the "Doctoral Consortium Award" in International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval (SIGIR2016) for my research on Significant Words Representations of Entities. \o/ Here are my presentation slides and for more information, you can refer to my post about my SIGIR-DC submission.
Hackyourfuture is an initiative that teaches computer programming to refugees in Dutch refugee centers. At the moment many refugees have very few possibilities in terms of work and education during their time in a refugee center. Due to the current amount of refugees many people stay in a refugee center for longer periods of time. […]
