Bing is partnered with the folks at O'Reilly Radar to create a series called "The Future of Search." Their editors will be curating multiple themes including social search, natural language, and "the web of things" that explore what the industry sees now, and where it might be headed."
Here's how it works: "every 3-4 weeks, the channel will feature a theme and a variety of videos, writings, and discussions on that theme so as to elevate the search discussion beyond market share, the feature of the week, or dwelling on past trends. Our first topic - Welcome to the party: Social's potential and limitations on information retrieval and usage -- will show off the intellectual horsepower that spoke at the Farsight conference including Esther Dyson, Rich Skrenta of Blekko and Dr. Chris Ahlberg.
The series will also feature big brains from our own Microsoft Research like Principal Researcher Susan Dumais and on-the-ground engineers like Bing's Sean Suchter whose team works to ensure Bing takes social data into account and integrates it in a meaningful way," stated bing.
