Andrea LaPaugh: Foundations and Future of Information Search - March 4, 2009
Lunch 'n Learn presentation: Everyone googles - in the U.S, about 12 billion times a month (including search engines that aren’t Google). We are mostly pleased with the results we get. How can it be that we give an automated system a couple of words and it finds reasonably relevant documents among one hundred billion or so possibilities? Will our satisfaction with these tools increase or decrease as the Web and our expectations grow? Dr. LaPaugh gives a peek “under the hood” and discuss

Lunch 'n Learn presentation: The archaeological site of Akrotiri on the volcanic island of Thera (modern-day Santorini, Greece) has yielded an unparalleled trove of artifacts and information from the prehistoric Aegean. The ancient civilization was destroyed by a volcanic eruption, which buried the remains of a flourishing Late Bronze Age (c. 1630 B.C.) settlement in ash. Among the most significant finds are numerous wall paintings, ranging from naturalistic and narrative scenes to abstract moti
