The Google Summer of Code 2017 is officially over and we just can't believe how much work @markus and @masha_ivenskaya have done over the last couple of months. Pattern3 is close to being ready for public release. And an amazing left-right bias classifier has been finished and published on github. A valuable tool in the fight against fake news! Check their blog posts below.


We want to thank the mentors Vincent Merckx and Amra Dorjbayar for their most valuable input. We will now start localizing the fake news algorithms to Dutch and are happy to report that they have agreed to lend their continued support. Also a big shout out to Google for putting all of this together! The Google Summer of Code is an amazing project and we can't recommend joining this initiative enough!

Finally, of course a huuuuuuge thank you to our students. It was an honor for us to work with such talented people and we wish Masha Ivenskaya and Markus Beuckelmann all the best in their future careers. We are sure that they will be very successful in their future endeavors!
