Ever wonder how search engines return results so quickly? Join us for an engaging evening behind the search bar... !

In this presentation, Kranti will walk us through the evolution of Comcast's search platform and discuss how the platform processes and uses Big Data to provide innovative products to millions of users. Kranti will also touch on the technologies he uses to achieve results with Big Data, including Apache Lucene/Solr, MongoDB & Hadoop.

How does Comcast know what you want to watch before you do? How does Kranti's team place 1 million titles at your fingertips? What does Comcast do with the data it collects about you?

Kranti Parisa is Lead Engineer at Comcast's Search and Discovery group, co-author of a new book on Solr, and a frequent contributor to the Apache Solr community. Join us for an eye-opening evening!
