Google Award Research

Dr. Vagelis Hristidis receives prestigious Google Research Award

Dr. Hristidis received the prestigious and very selective Google Research Award, in collaboration with Prof. Ipeirotis from the NYU Business School, to create theory and technologies that facilitate the effortless exchange of information within an application domain. As an example, after a hurricane disaster, government agencies, news media and businesses submit progress and status reports in the form of text documents. It is hard to accurately search such documents, as is the case for the public Web, due to the complexity of the natural language. Dr. Hristidis’ work will allow automatically annotating exchanged document using dynamic and standardized terminology, which will allow accurately searching this data.
