A SAGE Ocean Concept Grant won by SoBigData! The SoBigData member Stefano Cresci (IIT-CNR) won this very prestigious award with a proposal based on digital DNA.
We are very excited about the possibility to develop the digital DNA toolbox, thanks to the prestigious award of the SAGE Ocean Concept Grant. We firmly believe that current problems related to the assessment of credibility and reliability of content (and content producers) require a multidisciplinary approach. To this end, this funding will contribute to bridging the gap between big data and social scientists, empowering the latter with state-of-the-art algorithms and analysis techniques that would otherwise be confined within the computer science community. We look forward to working together with SAGE and other social scientists in order to deliver efficient, easy-to-use tools, and to make an impact on our society.
