Little did we know how much our students would be competitive when we first presented them this year’s SemEval. However, as we joined forces and started passionately working on the task of detecting tweets’ stances, hardly anyone could stop them from taking the reins and bringing us some amazing results!
We got a chance to hear something about the interesting topic of textual entailment! The lecture was delivered by one of the authors of most widely-used platform for textual entailment today, Sebastian Padó!
On Monday, December 21 we organized an informal TakeLab party for all our current students, this time using Christmas as an excuse. Even though it was an intimate party located on the university grounds, we had a lot of fun and laughs (bad food as well). Some of us even managed to pull off an all-nighter!
Our great students have finally received their bachelor degrees in computing!
