In two weeks we're starting our MSc course Research Seminar Data Science in which students review papers. While reviewing is really important in science, it is also good to realize that peer reviewing is a relatively new invention. Many important scientific discoveries, like Einstein's theory of relativity (1905) or the double helical structure of DNA by Watson and Crick (1953) were not peer reviewed by modern standards.

The "unofficial" Information Retrieval Mastodon Instance.

Goal: Make idf.social a viable and valuable social space for anyone working in Information Retrieval and related scientific research.

Everyone welcome but expect some level of geekiness on the instance and federated timelines.
