Adam Jatowt has been granted the prestigious International Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award

Every year, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation awards approximately 20 Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Awards to internationally renowned scientists in recognition of their outstanding research achievements.

The award bears the name of the German astronomer and mathematician Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel (1784-1846) and is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

This year, Prof. Adam Jatowt has received it in recognition of his past accomplishments in research and teaching.

Adam Jatowt's research focuses on knowledge extraction and information retrieval from unstructured text collections, including collections of news articles, social media posts, or scientific publications. In particular, he is interested in novel approaches to retrieving useful knowledge from large news archives and other types of temporal or historical document corpora. In this context, he conducts research on question answering, content recommendation, comparative summaries, and timeline generation from news content. Adam Jatowt has also worked on methods for automatically estimating the difficulty and comprehensibility of texts so that search engines can output relevant yet understandable results. Finally, he has often been involved in digital history and social informatics projects, such as those aimed at quantifying features of collective memory and collective expectations in society.

We congratulate Adam on this outstanding achievement!
