HCIR 2012 Challenge: People Search by Daniel Tunkelang.
From the post:
As we get ready for the Sixth Symposium on Human-Computer Interaction and Information Retrieval this October in Cambridge, MA, people around the world are working on their entries for the third HCIR Challenge.
Daniel reviews the results from HCIR 2010 (exploring news archives) and HCIR 2011 (information availability) and reviews the current challenge, people search.
The people search tasks include “hiring,” “assembling a conference program,” and “finding people to deliver patent research or expert testimony.”
I wonder if any of the disharmony relationship sites are going to sponsor teams?
