Structured search improves the search experience through the identification of entities and their relationships in documents and queries. This panel will explore the current state of structured and semi-structured search, as well as exploring the open problems in an area that promises to revolutionize information seeking.
The four panelists below 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. They work on the data, tools, and research that are driving this field. They are all excellent researchers and presenters, promising to offer a informative and engaging panel discussion, for which I will act as moderator.
