Industrial Award of WebDB Forum 2017
At WebDB Forum, sponsors give industrial awards to students who presented excellent research outputs.
This year, we awarded the Rakuten Prize to Fukuyama-san from Tsukuba University, Japan.
He proposed an algorithm for clustering hashtags considering the burst phenomenon in Twitter.
It’s is very important for Rakuten to track customer demands in real time. His proposed algorithm will directly contribute to this issue.
We’re looking forward to seeing further progress of his research. Good luck, Fukuyama-san.
