Dasha Herrmannova and Petr Knoth succeed in WSDM Cup 2016

Dasha and Petr have participated in the challenge which is part of the upcoming Web Search and Data Mining (WSDM) conference. The challenge, coorganised by Microsoft and Elsevier, was to assess the importance of scholarly articles, using data from Microsoft Academic Graph — a large heterogeneous graph comprised of more than 120 million publications and the related authors, venues, organizations, and fields of study. Dasha and Petr (team called BletchleyPark) were the best out of 32 teams in the training round of the competition and after the validation round were invited to take part in the second phase of the challenge as one of the eight best of the 32 teams. They will also present their method at the workshop in San Francisco, California, in February.
