First year CPSSD students, Conor and Darragh Griffin stormed to victory at this year's UK/Ireland Intercollegiate Programming Competition held in the School of Computing, DCU on Saturday. The twins finished first out of 10 other Undergraduate teams around the country and placed a very respectful 15th out of all 70 UK and Irish University teams. This is the first time DCU has been the Irish host site for the competition and great to get home success in it's first year of hosting.
Redbrick are hosting a number of events over the next two weeks to highlight to students the many opportunities for students available at Google throughout the year whether it's internships, full time roles, scholarships or summer camps.
The CNGL Centre for Global Intelligent Content is calling on members of the public to join the fight against cyberbullying by contributing social stereotypes through a crowdsourcing platform launched earlier this month at the National Cyberbullying Conference at Dublin Castle. Stereotype detection is an important building block in the fight against online bullying. The stereotypes collected will be used to build an anti-cyberbullying system capable of automatically identifying subtle, non-explicit forms of bullying language that is widespread online but which is typically difficult to detect.
