Description

The Genesis of Online Search

Join us for a look back to literature searching before the digital age and the early evolution of online search. Get a glimpse of some of the conceptual leaps, logistical challenges and key accomplishments that went into building the Dialog interactive search service, and explore how Dialog influenced some of the features in today’s web-scale search services.

Leading the way two decades before the internet, Dialog has now been in active use for over 45 years. In May 2019, its creation is being celebrated as an IEEE Milestone, a program honoring significant technical achievements that have benefited humanity.

Speakers:

Roger Summit, founder and chairman emeritus of Dialog and Elizabeth Trudell, Dialog executive,1983-2013
