Earlier this year, I had the privilege to moderate a panel at Strata New York 2011 on Entities, Relationships, and Semantics: the State of Structured Search. The four panelists are people I’ve had the pleasure to work with over the years: Andrew Hogue (Google), Breck Baldwin (Alias-i), Evan Sandhaus (New York Times), Wlodek Zadrozny (IBM Research). They work on some of the world’s largest structured search problems — from offering users structured search on Google’s web corpus to building a computing system that defeated Jeopardy! champions in an extreme test of natural language understanding.
O’Reilly has compiled the nearly 50 hours of video from the conference and made the collection available for purchase. I was lucky to attend all of the keynotes and many of the breakout sessions, and I highly recommend them. In the meantime, you can see a recording of the panel I moderated.
