IJCNN 2022 proceedings contain a new study from the HOMADOS group, showing how verification of a short claim can be facilitated by recommending relevant reliable sources. See Publications and Resources for more information.
Our work at ACL 2022
Our article entitled “Using NLP to quantify the environmental cost and diversity benefits of in-person NLP conferences” has been accepted for the 60th Annual Meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics (Findings of ACL 2022). See publications and resources for more information.
Our propaganda detection ranked 2nd in SemEval-2021
We participated in the shared task of “Detection of Persuasion Techniques in Texts and Images” at SemEval-2021 Task 6 and our solution was second best in subtask 2. See the publications on the task and our solution for more information.
New article in IP&M
Our article has been published in Information Processing & Management. It describes Credibilator, a browser extension performing automatic credibility assessment for the currently opened webpage. We also show how it can be used to alter users’ perception of text credibility.
Yet another computing grant received
Our research plan on fine-grained detection of propaganda techniques has been awarded 18,800 PLN within the Research Credits programme of Google Cloud Platform. Thanks, Google!
