Semantic Search with Apache Solr
This talk will provide an overview of what Semantic Search is and a brief introduction of how to implement a Semantic search system using the capabilities of Apache Solr. The goal is to create a substantially more relevant search experience for users.
Google Cloud Search
This talk will provide an overview of Google’s latest venture into enterprise search. The nostalgic yellow GSA hardware has now been retired to make way for the best search features that today’s information workers expect and only the cloud can really offer. The presentation will provide details into how companies can adopt the cloud search experience, what features are available today and a look into what Google has in store for the future of search.
You’ve probably heard of MicroProfile, but how do you go from buzz to production? In this code-heavy, interactive presentation, we’ll describe how to use OpenTracing (http://opentracing.io/) with Jaeger (https://www.jaegertracing.io/) and annotations in MicroProfile and other Microservice architectures to reliably improve and deploy updated versions your applications to OpenShift and Kubernetes in the cloud. Topics include best practices for performance analysis, maintaining delivery pipelines using the Linux command line, plus tips on the best free OpenTracing tools and SDKs available on GitHub.
NOTE: This meeting is NOT on our normal "second-Thursday" schedule.
The popularity of Amazon's Alexa and Google Home has been inspiring both developers and businesses to think about Voice computing. From a banking assistant on your phone to grocery shopping on your TV - it is truly exciting to see how Voice Interfaces could be used. The challenge, however, is that most Voice Apps are fairly limited in what they can do.
In this talk, Vineet shares experiences from prototyping and building over a dozen Voice Apps. He shows how practical decisions can make implementing great apps easy, reviews existing tools that have been built and talks about Violet (http://helloviolet.ai/) an Open-Source Voice App Framework designed to help developers create Voice Apps. Violet uses an approach inspired by Angular and React to simplify the complexity needed when manually building using other lower-level frameworks, while providing for more flexibility than the drag-and-drop non-technical tools on the market.
