NGI Forward Workshop: Future of Search 2021, January 27 2021 (online)

26/11/2020 - 18:15

There is something strangely intimate about seeing what people search for - it somehow feels like peeking right into their brain as they attempt to interface with technology on someone elses terms. Search makes people transparent and vulnerable: there are no euphemisms, no cloaks you can wear when you have to talk to a machine that needs to sieve through a large pile of information for you - yet. But perhaps we can change that? And while we are at it: can we shift the asymmetric balance of power between technology providers and users? Can we improve the efficiency of search? What else can we do better?

More info soon.
