Siddharth Gopal and Yubin Kim Receive Peter Jackson Fellowships
The Peter Jackson Fellowship announced last year was awarded to Siddharth Gopal and Yubin Kim to support cutting-edge research in information retrieval. The students’ research is focused on hierarchical modeling of data and text analysis of social media, respectively. The Fellowship was funded by Thomson Reuters, as well as individual employee and matching gift contributions to honor the late Dr Jackson, Chief Scientist and Vice President of Research and Development.
Dr. Jackson’s research interests included natural language processing, automated reasoning, expert systems, recommender systems and information retrieval. He was passionate about designing and building systems that transform how professionals find, interact with and consume information so it seemed natural that we should create 2 fellowships at former university Carnegie Mellon University School of Computer Science.
