Retrieval systems like internet search still use the same underlying keyword-based index they used back in the 1990s. Dan Gillick will describe his research on building a new kind of retrieval system based, somewhat unsurprisingly, on neural networks. Heâll try to explain the key pieces of technology and discuss how this may change the way we look for and find things.
