Most popular search engines rely on keywords: a user submits an inquiry to the search engine and results that match the inquiry is returned. Next-generation search, however, moves beyond keywords and expands search into new territories.

In this session, we’ll explore how next-generation search engines use cognitive computing, natural language processing, and other features to serve up results that are tailored to the client and anticipate their data needs – in some cases, before a search is even performed. We’ll also take a peek under the hoods of Tensorflow, Google Cloud Platform, and IBM’s Watson Explorer, a next-generation search engine that beat two human competitors in a 2011 episode of Jeopardy.
