Video Lectures on Search Topics
I was doing some research today and came across several lectures that might be of interest to some of you.
All you need is MS Media Player to watch and listen. While they all are a couple of years old, the lectures were given "big names" in IR research and still might be of value.
1) Learning the structure of unstructured document bases
Lecture by David Cohn (Carnegie Mellon)
2) How to Crawl the Web
Lecture by Hector Garcia-Molina (Stanford)
3) The Structure of Information Networks
Lecture by Jon Kleinberg (Cornell)
NOTE: Kleinberg was the lead developer of IBM's Clever search engine whicj was one of the first tools (pre-Google) to utilize link analysis in its algo. In fact, Brin and Page cite Kleinber. Never publicly released, many of Clever concepts are being used by Teoma.
While we're on the video beat, a November 2003 lecture by Udi Mandbar, the head of a9, might also be of interest. You'll need Real Player for this one.
