Abstract

A behind-the-scenes look at how search engines work. We'll look at crawling, indexing, and ranking, and then delve into vertical search engines and text classification. Additional applications of search will be mentioned and we'll end with a look at new types of search engines and a look at active research areas in Information Retrieval and Natural Language Processing.

Dinner will be served at 6:30pm in Steinmetz 209.
