Elena Rudkowsky gave her PhD proposal talk at University of Vienna in December 2016. Her PhD proposal and her doctoral thesis agreement got accepted by the university. She’ll work on story discovery in text documents to support investigative data journalists during the next two years (until the end of VALiD’s project duration in Dec. 2018). Her research questions are:

  1. How can journalists be enabled to search for concepts instead of terms?
  2. How can journalists safe time when tagging documents?
  3. How can journalists explore corpus-related named entity networks that are linked to additional relevant information from public named entity databases?
