Research group(s): Cognitive Science

Online platforms like social media are increasingly being used for newsgathering, which requires computational methods to assist both journalists and end users. Examples of research problems within this line of research include event detection, summarisation of news, recommender systems, fact-checking, finding information sources such as eyewitnesses or development of dashboards to assist with newsgathering.
