We came first in the city-based geolocation task at W-NUT 2016!

March 10th, 2017

Well done to the team for their submission to the W-NUT 2016 geolocation shared task.  This work helps in the science of estimating aggregate demographic statistics from public social media and can help us distinguish, for example, rural versus city-based topics.

For more information about the shared task, see the workshop site.

Our paper is available here.
