new/s/leak @ ACL 2016

Last week, we presented new/s/leak for the first time in public: we had our demo session at the annual meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics, which was held in Berlin this year.
If you haven’t had the chance to attend (or you had and want to have some references now):

  • Here’s the paper documenting our software (you’ll find a large part of the information from the paper in this blog, too)
  • Here’s our poster (in PDF format)

And, of course, we took some pictures, testifying how much fun we had (click for larger versions):

Thanks to everyone who stopped by, especially for the great suggestions for improvements! Be sure that we’re working on that while you’re reading this post. If you have any more ideas, application visions or simply want to debate information extraction and / or journalism – please get in touch!

Paper accepted @ SKILL 2016

Franziska, who designed and documented our requirements analysis for her research seminar paper (Studienarbeit), turned this into an article accepted for SKILL 2016, titled “new/s/leak – Anforderungsanalyse einer interaktiven Visualisierung für Data-Driven Journalism” (in German – English translation: “new/s/leak – Requirements analysis of an interactive visualization for data driven journalism”).

Congrats Franziska, and of course thanks for the excellent analysis!

Paper accepted @ ACL 2016

Our paper “new/s/leak – Information Extraction and Visualization for an Investigative Data Journalists” was accepted for the Systems Demonstration Track at ACL 2016!

ACL is the most important conference for computational linguistics, and we will present new/s/leak there. Stay tuned for the final paper version – and our publicly available prototype.

Looking forward to meeting you in Berlin!
