Ever wonder why Google isn't very helpful in finding something fun to do tonight? Search engines have gotten really good at finding information that literally matches our keywords, but they fall short when our needs and priorities are either hard to express or hard to match directly to the target content. These limitations are giving rise to a new set of search experiences based on semantic understanding and recommendations that are personal, social, and contextual. Companies like Netflix, Yelp and Pandora have kicked off the first wave of new search. By focusing on searching by how we naturally think, talk and feel about the matter at hand, we can begin to find information that's relevant to us both logically and emotionally. In this panel, we will look at the emerging technologies and user experiences that are creating the next big thing for the search industry.
