This week, we began our countdown to the Lucene/Solr Revolution event in San Diego with a daily blog series, and just yesterday we began posting short bios of some of our featured speakers. Today, we continue with the focus on speakers but take a look at some of the people behind the Deep Dives and tutorial sessions, where community members can learn from peers. As we said yesterday, Revolution enables the community to go both wide and deep. With the Deep Dives, they can explore the meaning and impact of some of the more important topics and trends in open source search and big data.
Here’s one big topic: language support. Christian Moen and Gaute Lambertsen, both software engineers at Atlika, a Japanese corporation providing innovative products and services within search, natural language processing and big data to leading businesses worldwide will present Language support and linguistics in Lucene/Solr and its eco-system. In the Deep Dive they’ll address the role that language handling plays in the overall search experience. Specifically, the session will look at the functionality of language handling and linguistics in Lucene/Solr and best-practices in Western, Asian and multi-language deployments. With 13+ years experience with search across a range of industries, Christian brings a unique set of skills and insights to the event. Gaute is an accomplished software developer and researcher, having conducted research in mobile and ubiquitous computing at Ritsumeikan University, the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) and Nokia Research Center.
With the recent growth of the global Lucene/Solr community, we believe this talk will serve as one of the more foundational learning sessions for the 21st century search professional. For a preview, here’s a video from last year’s event where Christian talks about Japanese linguistics in Lucene/Solr:
Koorosh, often tapped as the “in house” search expert at Synopsys, will pull from his 15 years of experience both leading and developing Enterprise Web applications and can share insights from his team’s roll out of second generation search based on Solr.
