Computer Science researchers receive the best paper award at the 2018 Internet Measurement Conference (IMC)

The paper "On the Origins of Memes by Means of Fringe Web Communities", by Savvas Zannettou, Tristan Caulfield, Jeremy Blackburn, Emiliano De Cristofaro, Michael Sirivianos, Gianluca Stringhini, and Guillermo Suarez-Tangil, received the best paper award at the 2018 Internet Measurement Conference (IMC), held in Boston this week. 

Internet memes are increasingly used to sway and manipulate public opinion. This prompts the need to study their propagation, evolution, and in?uence across the Web. In the paper, the researchers detect and measure the propagation of memes across multiple Web communi... [more]

Cogent Labs and University College London Partner in Long-term Joint Research Initiative

Cogent Labs and UCL will pursue a unique joint research approach where AI research will be long term and ongoing, fully collaborative with researchers from both institutions working together, with all results being made public and shared with the wider AI community and society at large. 

UCL researchers bring extensive AI expertise and established relationships with the international academic community while CL, in addition to its research team, will contribute with its strong machine learning team lead by David Cournapeau, the original author of the globally used machine learning library Sci...
