Google Most people online have heard of Google or used Google's search box to find information. Five years ago the engine was a Stanford project by two students and a paper at the WWW conference. Now Google is a household word, guides millions of people every day, and powers much of the world's online searching and advertising. This talk gives a peek under the hood as the company evolved. The talk will cover Google's history and technology, research issues in web information retrieval, future challenges in search, and employment opportunities.
