Peter Norvig from Google recently gave a talk on managing the data deluge that can be seen online here as part of the CITRIS Distinguished Speaker Series.
"Theorizing from data: Avoiding the capital mistake"
Dr. Peter Norvig from Google gave a talk on Monday, Sept. 25, at 4:00 p.m in HP Auditorium, Soda Hall, UC Berkeley campus as part of the CITRIS Distinguished Speaker Series.
Researchers in computational linguistics and information retrieval now have a million times more data than was available 30 years ago. In this talk, Peter Norvig explores what this data can do for problems in language understanding, translation, information extraction, and inference, and extrapolates to what more data may bring in the future.
Norvig, a Berkeley alumnus, has been at Google Inc since 2001 as its director of machine learning, search quality, and research. He is a Fellow of the American Association for Artificial Intelligence and coauthor of "Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach," the leading textbook in the field. Previously he was the senior computer scientist at NASA and head of the 200-person Computational Sciences Division at Ames Research Center.
