SAM SIG: A Tale of Two Search Engines
A Tale of Two Search Engines
John D. Mitchell, Mad Scientist of MarkMail, previously Chief Architect of Krugle
Betwixt the rigid structure of relational databases and the unbridled chaos of random content lies the world of search engines. Search engines shine in the middle ground where the messy complexity of reality makes everything harder than we imagine.
While the soap operas of general-purpose search engines dominate the news, specialized search engines are coming to dominate their vertical niches. Special-purpose search engines can aggressively leverage domain-specific intelligence to return highly relevant results.
This talk will present the architecture, implementation, and stories behind the creation of two specialized search engines for code and email: Krugle and MarkMail.
John D. Mitchell is Mad Scientist of MarkMail -- a search engine for email. Previously, he was the Chief Architect of Krugle -- a search engine for source code and technical information. John has also been Chief Technology Officer of jGuru, ElasticMedia, HealthLogic.com, and the MageLang Institute.
