We are excited to announce that the finalists for the NYU Coleridge Initiative’s Rich Context Competition have been selected. The competition challenged computer scientists to find ways of automating the discovery of research datasets, fields and methods behind social science research publications. 20 teams from 8 countries submitted letters of intent and four finalists have been chosen. We will be live webcasting the finalists’ presentations as well as the announcement of the winner on February 15.
This project is a competition for researchers to build tools to help automate the discovery of data sets in the social sciences. The competition comes with prizes of $2,000 to each of the finalists, with up to $20,000 to be awarded to the winning team. Find out more and apply today.
