Paper entitled, A Markov Chain Model for Changes in Users’ Assessment of Search Results, by Zhitomirsky, Levene and Bar-Ilan published in open access journal PLOS ONE.
Previous research shows that users tend to change their assessment of search results over time. The paper is a first study that investigates the factors and reasons for these changes, and describes a stochastic model of user behaviour that may explain these changes.

The department has launched a new MSc in Data Science. Applications are open for October 2016 entry.
This intensive programme provides an excellent grounding for working as a data scientist or analyst in industry. As well as gaining a broad knowledge of computing, you will acquire programming and data analysis skills using Python and R. You will also have the opportunity to investigate certain areas of current research in data science more deeply.
The programme is offered part-time over two years of study. Unlike most MSc Data Science programmes in London, it is designed for graduates who are new to computer science.
