How we hosted and ran a Lucene Hackday in Washington DC the week of the Activate conference, and what attendees considered and achieved during the day
TALMIRI is a symposium to bring together talented early-stage researchers, academics and information retrieval industry with invited speakers in an iconic location in Bedfordshire, UK. Practioners and researchers, in particular but not exclusively PhD/MSc students and early-stage researchers, are invited to present (as poster or demo) their exciting search and information retrieval related work to IR experts and industry. Charlie Hull of OSC will be presenting on Working in Open Source Search, giving attendees an insight into the sort of projects and technology he has dealt with over a 20 year career in search.
Our next training event, Relevance Cornucopia🦃, we'll add the missing piece to the manual tuning & learning to rank picture: Natural Language Search. Come learn to build relevance that can be both optimized by machine learning AND understands user's natural language.
Search systems struggle to balance diversifying the result set to match likely intents vs ranking against one well understood intent.

A review of the Mix Camp E-Commerce Search 2019 held in Berlin, maturity models, offline/online evaluation, ranking & emotion in search
Smarter search drives value to your business. Delivering search that matches users to the right content is what you care about. Come and hear Eric Pugh's keynote talk at MICES, Berlin
This full day class helps you understand how working on onsite search for e-commerce requires different thinking than other engineering problems. We teach you to measure search quality, take a hypothesis-driven approach to search projects, and safely 'fail fast' towards ever improving business KPIs.

A guest blog from Alex Addison on how LexisNexis UK are building production-ready infrastructure for Solr using AWS autoscaling groups, Terraform and Zookeeper.
Search is a deceptively complex field, where competence is hard-won through training, practice, and experience. In that vein dear friends, I've exhumed the venerable "Falsehoods Programmers Believe" party from 4 years ago to bring you one about, no less, Search.
We won't address machine learning illiteracy in search if we can't go beyond buzzwords. We need to teach concrete, specific techniques.
Join me for four training days in August, going deep into improving your search relevance and learning to rank skills.
Using simple statistical methods to find important phrases goes a surprisingly long way to improve search relevance
