The way we discover new information is being recast. Computers compose answers to our questions, new types of information and media are being delivered, and revolutions in speech recognition are transforming the way we access information. Despite many of these advances, many fundamental aspects of these systems have difficult, open questions. To help us make sense of this revolution, leading researchers will discuss their personal view on the future of information discovery. We also discuss how recent research advances in this area might be directly applied to important open problems in industry and government agencies.
We will have a panel session with speakers from
