February Public Lecture: Keeping Track of the Web

The IMA will welcome Carrie Grimes, a principal engineer with Google, Inc., for an upcoming public lecture on February 12, 2014, at 7 p.m. Grimes will discuss information creation and updates on the web.

According to Grimes, the content of the internet has grown rapidly to fill many information niches and forms a critical—and entertaining—resource for the public. However, there isn’t a catalog of pages on the web or a central registry of updates. Therefore, a web resource, such as a search engine that wants to capture a significant part of the web, has to keep up. Grimes will explore this timely topic on Wednesday, February 12, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. at 2-650 Moos Tower, 515 Delaware St. SE, East Bank, University of Minnesota.

Grimes specializes in data analysis, algorithms, and search infrastructure. Her research focuses on extracting meaning from very big and very noisy data sets.
