Description: Recently, there have been several exciting developments in using social search and personalization to help users find information. The more interesting developments have to do with recommendations based on personal tastes, social trends, tags, ratings, popularity, and friends tastes. All these methods go beyond the classic search paradigm of relevance and flat lists of results, resulting in different types of user experience challenges. This panel will explore some recent trends in this area by bringing together panelists from Netflix, Live365 and Pandora.
Join us for drinks later! We will be going to a bar on California Street La Bodeguita del Medio after the panel. Come by.
