If it doesn’t, you’re not doing it right.
And on why research is not like sex.
It is not about research, science, publishing, or conferences: it is about you.
3 years in which you can express yourself as much as you want, and choose what to do and how to improve yourself day by day.
It is a great opportunity to get to know yourself, to learn what is important for you, to think about your path in life.
A time for change, a bet on yourself.
Piled Higher and Deeper!
I will be traveling to USA for the WSDM’12 conference to present our work on news recommendation: “From Chatter to Headlines: Harnessing the Real-Time Web for Personalized News Recommendation”. T.Rex (Twitter based RECommendation System) blends signals from social circles, personal interests and popularity to learn a personalized ranking function for online news articles. A more detailed explanation will follow as an invited post on another blog.
At WSDM I will be giving a 4 minutes spotlight presentation and then I will explain the details in a long poster session.
Then, I will fly to California to present T.Rex at the annual Yahoo! Labs meeting: Science Week. There I will have a 10 minutes slot in a workshop about news experiments and a 1 minute presentation in a fun competition called “60 seconds of science”.
It’s going to be challenging to present the same topic in so many different formats!
Now I can start breathing again!
