Last year, I had the pleasure of co-organizing the CIKM 2011 Industry Event in Glasgow. This year, I’m honored to be part of the CIKM 2012 Industry Event program, along with top industry researchers from Adobe, eBay, Google, Groupon, IBM, Microsoft, Tencent, and Walmart Labs. I’ll be giving a talk on “Data By The People, For The People“.
I’m also thrilled to be joined by my colleague Mitul Tiwari, who will be presenting a paper on “Metaphor: A System for Related Search Recommendations“, work that he did with Azarias Reda, Yubin Park, Christian Posse, and Sam Shah.
If you’re attending CIKM, please make sure to say hi to me and Mitul. We’d be delighted to talk to you about the work that we and our colleagues are doing. Our data team also has a site showcasing our team, our publications, and some of the projects we can discuss publicly. And, of course, we’re hiring!
