Trey is SVP of Engineering @ Lucidworks, co-author of Solr in Action, founder or Celiaccess.com, researcher/ public speaker on search, analytics, recommendation systems, and natural language processing.

I was a panelist today for the South Big Data Hub’s open panel on Text Data Analysis. The event was geared toward researchers and companies working on text mining in any sector. Topics discussed included web-scraping, semantic web, analysis tools in R and Python, the benefits of open source search engines such as Solr and elasticsearch as well as current industry search options.

In my presentation, I provided a quick introduction to Apache Solr, described how companies are using Solr to power relevant search in industry, and provided a glimpse at where the industry is heading with regard to implementing more intelligent and relevant semantic search. Slides are attached here for future reference.
