Congratulations to grand prize winners from Professor Jiawei Han’s group at UIUC. Jialu Liu, Jingbo Shang, Chi Wang, and Xiang Ren applied new techniques for mining high quality phrases from massive text corpora. In addition to working with English language corpora, Professor Han’s group has also tackled Chinese and Arabic, in collaboration with ARL researchers. Automated approaches to extract knowledge from vast amounts of heterogeneous and unformatted data are helping people improve planning and recognize emerging trends.
