Based on our exhaustive research, scientists will be more successful by choosing mentors and/or mentees whose last name starts with 'B'. Wondering where I could submit this...

We are delighted to welcome Nathan Buskulic as a new PhD student for research in #AutoML and #NAS.

91% of our #ExceptionalStudents at @tcddublin, @tcddublinscss, and @AdaptCentre received a distinction for their Bachelor/Master thesis, and many published a research paper. Congratulations! https://isg.beel.org/blog/2020/10/21/congratulations-to-our-bachelor-and-master-students-of-which-91-performed-exceptionally-well-in-their-theses/

I got the new Google #Pixel5 this morning. Compared with the #Huawei #P30, the Pixel 5 camera is somewhat disappointing. https://isg.beel.org/blog/2020/10/19/google-pixel-5-vs-the-huawei-p30-the-first-impression-of-the-camera-is-disappointing/ #HuaweiP30.

'Good Bye' Trinity College Dublin; 'Hello' to the University of Siegen and a Tenured Professorship as a Professor of Intelligent Systems. This is sad and good news at the same time... (read on in the blog post)

To learn about my new project http://www.recommender-systems.com join the #recsys2020 demo session today and tomorrow. Teaser Video: https://vimeo.com/456390735 Program: https://recsys.acm.org/recsys20/program/ #MakeTheRecSysCommunityABetterPlace

4.5 hours until I'll give my Invited Talk about my experience with building production #recsys and #livinglabs for online #evaluations. #LiLAS #Workshop @clef_initiative #clef2020 https://clef-lilas.github.io/

Wow, 4 out of 9 demo papers at the @ACMRecSys conference relate to #AutoRecSys (Automated Recommender Systems) https://recsys.acm.org/recsys20/accepted-contributions/#content-tab-1-3-tab. And a 5th one is in the pipeline (https://osf.io/4znmd/) #recsys #automl #RS_c

This week @donalscannell caught up with @EamonnDonlyn from Darwin and Goliath to explore micro-recommedation software and its applications beyond #eCommerce into evaluating corporate #sustainability. @JoeranBeel @scienceirel

#recsysfail by @Google ? or are people really only interested in the negative aspects of professors (non-responsive; sex with students; bullies; ...)? #recsys #rs_c https://twitter.com/Dirk_Lew/status/1296818769109684224

Hm.

“Recommendation” is the most popular term @sigir2020 -- what does that mean for the #RecSys community and @ACMRecSys conference? Is it time for a "Joint ACM Conference on Information Retrieval and Recommender Systems (#CIRRS)"? http://recommender-systems.com/news/2020/07/28/recommendation-is-the-most-popular-term-at-the-sigir-2020-conference-what-does-that-mean-for-the-recsys-community/ #RS_c #sigir2020 #IR

The #CORE Conference Ranking removes all #DigitalLibrary conferences from its database, including the A* conference @JCDLConf. #JCDL is a great venue, also for #RecSys and #ComputerScience
