Trolls scavenging Twitter and toxic discussions; it is time for more healthy debates on the platform. But how? To figure that out Twitter awarded a research grant to Delft scientist Dr Nava Tintarev. Click here for the article. 

27/06/2018  -  Subsidy for making the ‘smartest part of the North Sea’
An advanced test area of 10 x 10 nautical miles (= about 185 football pitches) is planned for off the coast of The Hague, just outside the port of Scheveningen. This area is unique in the world. It is within this ‘smartest stretch of the North Sea’ that the likes of Delft Data Science (DDS) researchers Anna Vilanova and Elmar Eisemann will get the chance to further their research. Click here for the article.

Open Science Symposium
TU Delft celebrated its 176th  birthday and combined the Dies Natalis event with an Open Science Symposium – thus seizing an opportunity to put openness firmly centre stage. Watch the Open Science Symposium with presentations by Alessandro Bozzon, Arie van Deursen, Claudia Hauff and Geurt Jongbloed here.

Delft Data Science researchers Alessandro Bozon and Achilleas Psyllidis are nominated for the Accenture INNOVATION AWARDS with their SocialGlass project. This is an online system for real-time urban big data analytics to help city stakeholders better understand the dynamics of cities. For example, by crowdsourcing on events such as SAIL.

NextView: Many Views of Virtual Worlds
Prof. Dr. E. (Elmar) Eisemann (m), Delft University of Technology – Computer Graphics and Visualization

Computer Graphics is important for many domains including geoscience, medicine, and entertainment. Traditional graphics methods are particularly costly when used for novel display devices (e.g., virtual reality) and in applications with many users (e.g., games). We will develop a novel many-view pipeline resulting in high-performance solutions for these scenarios.

Hoger onderwijs beschikbaar stellen aan miljoenen mensen voor weinig tot geen kosten, is een visie die massive open online cursussen wil vervullen. Deze visie is echter nog lang niet verwezenlijkt – te weinig mensen slagen er in te leren op deze manier. Dit project probeert dat te veranderen.
