Title: Programmable Search
Dr. Sriram Raghavan, IBM India Research Lab, Bangalore
Date & Time: December 1, 2010 11:00
Venue: Conference Room, 01st Floor, C Block, Kanwal Rekhi Building
In contrast with the radical advances in Web search over the last several years, search over enterprise intranets has remained a difficult and largely unsolved problem. In this talk, I will describe the journey of our research group into the realities, complexities, and challenges of large-scale enterprise search. Based on our work with the IBM intranet, I will motivate the need for search systems to be designed expressly to enable search quality management -- the task of customizing and configuring search systems to ensure high quality search results even as content, queries, and users change dramatically over time. I will describe a search paradigm, known as programmable search, that is designed specifically with search quality management in mind. Finally, I will end with a summary of our initial theoretical results in formally modeling a programmable search system.
