What we're about
"Information Explosion" has been defined as the rapid increase in the amount of published information/data and the effects of this abundance. The New England Search Technologies Group (NEST) was formed with the goal of making this ever expanding information content and data "findable" using technology components like Apache Lucene/Solr and ElasticSearch coupled with some "best practices" for modeling and transforming your data for optimal relevancy and recall. We will explore topics such as search engines, content extraction, data modeling, text analysis, natural language processing, entity recognition, analytics and machine learning. Let's learn, share and solve business search problems!
