Theme:

Language:
ENGLISH
Area:
conference
Duration:
00:45:21
Description:
Search portals in the web are vital decision tools for knowledge and cultural values of people. Free content should be accessible with free search. Instead of going through a centralized server that... acts as a gatekeeper, keeps logs of your searches and directs you to selected information, your own self-made search engine can deliver information with no censorship, and no tracking. In this talk, search use-cases like a project search, file search (with attached downloader), faceted search with user-defined categories, social search and peer-to-peer search are explained and demonstrated. You will be familiarized with search engine technology in general and different software modules which can be used to create amazing search portals with unusual but useful functions in just some minutes. Michael Christen, free software and open data enthusiast, is one of the developers and the project maintainer of the YaCy Search Engine project. He holds a Master of Science in Computer Science (Dipl. Inf.) degree. In the last years he worked as a search engine freelance consultant mainly for educational and cultural facilities.
