NTENT CTO, Dr. Ricardo Baeza-Yates Presents Semantic Query Understanding at the 40th International ACM SIGIR 2017

NTENT Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Ricardo Baeza-Yates, will present a paper titled, “Semantic Query Understanding” at the 40th International ACM SIGIR 2017 Conference on Research & Development in Information Retrieval, happening from August 7-11 in Tokyo, Japan. As part of the Symposium on Information Retrieval in Industry & Practice (SIRIP) track of the conference, his paper will delve into how NTENT’s technology semantically matches queries and documents.

Founded in 1963, the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Special Interest Group on Information Retrieval (SIGIR) has advocated for research, development and education in the fields of search and other information access technologies. Since 1978, the SIGIR conference has served as the principal international forum for unveiling new research results, showcasing cutting-edge systems, and exploring innovative techniques. The five-day conference covers material ranging from papers and demonstrations to workshops and tutorials centered on information retrieval. Attendees include academic and industrial researchers of information retrieval and search from all over the world.

As a past organizer and senior member of the community, Dr. Baeza-Yates will also participate in a variety of events such as welcome activities with graduate students and SIGIR’s business meeting. “I feel honored to be part of SIRIP, the industrial track for the top conference on search,” said Dr. Baeza-Yates. “Showing what we are doing at NTENT to the rest of the world is the first step in certifying the quality of our technology.”
