8:45 AM Keynote: Building Top Ranking And Relevant Algorithms For Search

Where is Search headed? Be it Retail, Media, Web search, the patterns emerging tell the same story—that we are not ready. Most Search systems, as they work today, will not be able to serve the customers for the searches she will be doing two years from now. There are tons of searches already happening that most e-retailers are not handling efficiently. Simply put, text search is not prepared to handle the future.  Bhawana Katiyar asks:
• Content of customer input: Are you ready for the changing patterns of queries customers are using to express their intent?
• Ways to customer input: Are you ready for the different ways your customers would want to express their intent?
• Higher expectations: Your customers are used to expectations set by niche websites. Are you ready to match the expectation?
• Knowledge repository: Do you really need that Knowledge repository your Scientists want to build?
