Enterprise Search

Search is among the most disruptive innovations of our time. It influences what we buy and where we go. It shapes how we learn and what we believe. It's also a radically multidisciplinary, creative challenge that's restructuring the landscapes of publishing, librarianship, communication, and knowledge management. In this talk, Peter Morville defines a pattern language for search and discovery that embraces user psychology and behavior, cross-channel information architecture, multisensory interaction, and emerging technology. He identifies design principles that apply across the categories of Web, e-commerce, enterprise, desktop, mobile, social, and real time. He also explains how future methods and user experience deliverables can help us  create better search applications today and invent the improbable discovery tools of tomorrow.

Skeptical Knowledge-Seeking: Business Research in the Age of 'Truthiness'

Is the trustworthiness of business news changing? Given the decline in resources devoted to investigative reporting in the mainstream media, is business reporting also deteriorating?  Are corporate spin, “truthiness” and flat-out errors of fact more common? Using insights from her own work and from conversations with business journalists, Cynthia Lesky explores how business news is changing and how this fact challenges and potentially rewards researchers and information analysts. Attendees are invited to bring examples of inaccurate business news stories from their own work.
