Stephen E. Arnold: Search Wizards Speak 2008-2011

Search Wizards Speak

Conference presentations about search and retrieval, text mining, and content processing are often little more than sales pitches. In the last 30 years, I’ve met a number of people who have made significant contributions to information retrieval. What I want to do is periodically interview some of the more interesting “search wizards”. Most of these people do not think of themselves as “wizards”. Most work dilligently to fill in the gaps in their knowledge. Search is a complicated discipline, and it is a full-time job to keep up with developments.
