Institute for Data Science
IDAS is Durham University’s multidisciplinary platform for new ideas in Data Science, cutting across the silos of subject-specific knowledge and aiming to transform our view of the world surrounding us – nature, society, and culture.
First IDAS paper on arXiv
On June 6 2019, the first paper co-authored by one of our IDAS students was on the arXiv. It investigates the creation of fake texts based on speech patterns in the UN assembly. Joe and his collaborator found that a few hours of training and computing resources worth less than £10 are sufficient to produce credible texts on a large array of topics.
