Yahoo Search Developer Network: Early Registration ends 7 Mar

NewsFlash: 7 March 2005 Early Registration ends 5:00 pm Japan Standard Time for Conference: April 3-4, 2005 Tokyo


Brainstorming


If you are part of the Yahoo Search Developer Network about searches... and looking for other sources of inspiration ... you may wish to consult the following brainstorming items.


Get out of that box

  • If you were alive when Sir Isaac Newton was alive, what kind of tools would you make to support Newton's research, indexing, and novel ideas?

  • What if someone like Isaac Newton [who was annoyed by popularity] was alive today and using search engines . . . would they distract him; would the blogs be annoying? What could you do to support his research?

  • What if Newton had blog capability when he was alive...would today's web tools support a novel innovator, or would they tend to be stifling? What would you change about the way things were to better assist him in his work?



  • Upcoming conferences

    Search-related sessions and papers that may be of interest. Take a look at the following sessions in light of the Yahoo Search Issues:

  • Session 15: Query Processing

  • Sessions 21-22: Query processing; Indexing and Data Aggregation

  • Session 26: XML Filtering, Cache consciousness

    China: Shanghai: March 29 - April 1, 2005

    Look at last item, "semi-structured query processing". Here are the Accepted papers.

  • Mobile: Look at Paper 41, "Mobile Real-Time Read-Only Transaction Processing in Data Broadcast Environments"

  • Natural disaster monitoring: Look at paper 78, "Collaborative web application for flood control system of reservoirs" -- Identify

    A. Methods discussed that could be applied to Tsunami and Earthquake warning systems;

    B. What upgrades and testing are required to ensure adequate communication support to isolated areas?

  • Paper 194: "A New Sequential Mining Approach to XML Document Clustering" -- How will it be determined the sequences are appropriate; what is the level of randomness to be introduced?

  • Paper 324: "Knowledge-Level Management of Web Information" -- Are we moving from just text, links, tags, and moving to new things-ways of organizing the data?

  • Paper 404, in re Mobile "Tree Structure Based Data Gathering for Maximum Lifetime in Wireless Sensor Networks" -- Please provide cost estimates on budget impacts to transition from current WIFI to this approach.

  • Paper 550 in re "An indexing method for two-dimensional pattern matching with applications to image database search"; compare to the XML Array; what is the proposal to display results graphically: Frequency, statistical tails, regression analysis, log-scales. [See 238 "Spatial Selectivity Estimation Using Compressed Histogram Information"]

  • Paper 396 "Constructing Extensible XQuery Mappings for XML Data Sharing" -- How will this approach be applied to user-focused maps?

  • 582 "MAZETTE: A Multi agent System designed for modeling and sharing the user experience" -- Given the current limitations in Java [to restrict cross-platform-coding because of security], consider Jybe

    A. Consider: How could the results of this paper's analysis be technically incorporated into end-user searches and products?

    B. Consider: Create ways for the protocols to be sufficient to accommodate this sharing; and develop methods to work-around the restrictions on users writing code that injects URLs into templates. See: 07-06-2004 10:54 PM.
