Lucene Revolution Keynote: Search is Not a Solved ProblemPosted: June 4, 2013 | Author: Hilary Mason | Filed under: Presentations | Tags: lucene, presentation, search, solr, talk | 3 Comments »
The brief idea behind this talk is that search is not a solved problem — there is still a big opportunity for building search (and finding?) capabilities for the kinds of questions that the current product fail to solve. For example, why do search engines just return a list of sorted URLs, but give me no information about the themes that are consistent across them?
The audience was technical, specifically Lucene and Solr devs, so I spent some time talking about how we use those technologies at bitly.
